As 2016 draws to a close, design experts are agreed on one thing. Making one’s home a cozy, comfortable retreat is going to be the top decorating trend. The New York Times is reporting on the rise of Hygge, the Dutch lifestyle that centers on creating snuggly places to relax with friends and enjoy good books. Pantone has chosen Greenery as their 2017 color of the year – a shade they describe as nature’s neutral, this light green shade evokes foliage, shrubbery, grass and good times.
Let’s talk about how these two trends impact custom deck design in Framingham. Deck gardens are one of our go-to strategies for creating private, green spaces for the home. Built in planters can be equipped with trellis that support climbing plants. Whether you choose beautiful roses, a leafy ivy, or even edible goodies like tomatoes to grow there, the result is a cool, effective visual screen in today’s trendiest color – greenery!
Do you really love green? Both composite decking and PVC decking come in green, as well as a variety of other colors and natural wood look. Color has a huge impact on how inviting and cozy your deck looks. Homeowners have so much freedom to make aesthetic choices that reflect the impression they want to give the world. From casual and family friendly to traditional and formal, the choice in decking material makes a huge impact in the appearance of your custom deck in Framingham. Another way to think about green is in terms of impact of your deck on the environment: PVC and composite decking is designed to be sustainable and earth friendly!
The way you accessorize your custom deck also impacts how cozy it is. Choose furniture that looks comfortable to spend time in; keep throws nearby for chillier evenings. Worried about rain? Stow your throws in small plastic totes: they’re weatherproof and available in a range of colors to complement your decor.
