YAY! It's Patio Season. by Shanna Shryne

TITLE.png

Here in California we enjoy patio season all year round & it's finally patio season for those of you in cooler climates now too! I recently went to Mama Shelter Los Angeles and instantly became obsessed with their colorful patio & vibrant plant life (as well as their rose sangria.)

Not only were the cocktails on point but also the rooftop design. An important element when designing patios is to create areas to gather around with family and friends. Other important design elements to incorporate on your patios are umbrellas and large plants, palms are some of my favorites. These items are both aesthetically pleasing & functional as they provide shade from the summer heat. If you have the space, adding an outdoor game or a swinging chair can be fun accents. 

So, without further ado I present my favorite patio ideas with a hope that they inspire you to make your outdoor space the best spot in your home this summer.

P.S. Please enjoy the recipe to my favorite Mama's Shelter cocktail below. Cheers!

Pantone Color(s) of the Year by Shanna Shryne

Move over Marsala....for the first time in the history of color, Pantone has selected two colors.

ROSE QUARTZ & SERENITY

A softer take on color, these two inspire peace, balance, and tranquility.  According to the brand, they also transcend cultural and gender blurs.

I love the combination of these two colors. The warmer embracing rose tone and the cooler tranquil blue demonstrate an inherent balance. These shades evoke a type of sunset that makes you stop in your tracks.

Rose Quartz is a persuasive yet gentle tone that conveys compassion and a sense of composure. It is a great color to mix with neutrals and a black and white color palette.

Serenity is weightless and airy, like a blue sky, bringing feelings of relaxation even in turbulent times. It is still a color that is growing on me and I have found the conceptual images below as ways to bring these two color palettes into your home and decor.
