How To Create An Outdoor Oasis Beyond The Current Trends

If you ask me, there are two places where you can find emerging trends for exterior design: couture clothing spring collections, and shows like Salone Del Mobile in Milan. Innovators in these environments are not looking what will sell to the mass market; they are responding to what exists while looking to create something new and inspirational.

Don’t get me wrong – mass market options aren’t bad. Matter of fact, they’re often on point and for the most part, accessible at all price points. 

Case in point, if any of your outdoor (or indoor, for that matter) color schemas fall into the palette below, then you’re trending and hopefully enjoying it.

Current Color Trends

However, if you’re going to hire a team of professional designers to provide you with something new and innovative that’s different from the masses, then why wouldn’t you want to know what the emerging trends for 2024 – 2025 are? We at Topiarius think you deserve to be in the know.

2024 – 2025 Trends

#1. Similar types of products used indoors have an available counterpart for outdoors. Whether it’s a surface treatment (tile, wall paper, paint), furniture, lighting, media, table games (ping-pong, billiards) built-ins (cabinetry, fire features) . . . it can be recreated outdoors, but be ready to pay a comparable price or more. A quality exterior budget is at least the same or more as an interior budget. That thing called weather doesn’t hold punches, so products are designed to be sustainable outdoors. Keep in mind that exterior products take a whole different level of expertise compared to interior products. Rely on us to be your trusted experts! 

#2. Textures are Mixed A LOT. Textures are not limited to plant choices! They are also included in surface treatments, furniture, built-ins, walls, screening, shade structures, hardscapes, lighting, etc. Your outdoor space shouldn’t be boring! It can and should provoke awe.

#3. Color! This may be my most freakin’ favorite trend of all. Products are crafted in SO MANY COLORS. You no longer have to feel limited to black, grey, and brown!

#4. Artisanal Pieces. Think unique, eye-catching pieces that can either stand alone or are multi-purpose as furniture or planters. A dose of whimsy and fun goes a long way.

#5. Curves. Well . . . admittedly, this is a current trend between sofas and arches, but it’s really exploding in the outdoor design world, in all kinds of products.  

See these examples below:
