Outdoor Decor Trend: Succulents

The use of succulents is an outdoor decor trend we’re seeing in our most recent Patio Style Challenge series. We’ve seen them hanging, planted in groups, single plantings… On side tables, dining tables, bookshelves, hanging gardens, and just about everywhere in between. Above, Atlanta-based lifestyle blogger Anna, of In Honor of Design, created a bar cart area off to the side of her renter-friendly patio. These tall tin buckets spray painted with copper spray paint and planted with short succulents are a neat combination.

Michelle Hinckley, of 4 Men 1 Lady, decorated her tall dining table with single succulent plantings in bright containers. The yellow decor scheme and complimentary container colors create a really interesting contrast. Plus, it never hurts to have an aloe plant easily accessible in the spring and summer when sunburns are common!
