5 unmissable outdoor trends for 2022

Elegance and a touch of exotic allure for our outdoors

Summer has arrived suddenly, and finding ourselves unprepared is perfectly understandable. The first thing to do now? Reorganise and design our outdoor spaces, getting ready to invite friends for aperitifs and dinners outdoors! If you don’t know where to start, we can give you 5 tips to make your outdoor space, be it large or small, special, creating super-hospitable settings where you can spend afternoons and evenings together with family and friends: because the summer really is the most magical time of the year!

Cosy balconies

A small outdoor space? No problem; you can still create a comfortable corner full of style. First of all, it’s a good idea to choose comfortable and practical furnishings: a rattan outdoor armchair, a large pouf to sit on, a small table of the right height for resting drinks on and, finally, everything enriched with soft fabrics, comfortable cushions and fragrant candles that can create the right atmosphere. As for colours, go for neutral colours like beige and cream white, to personalize with touches of mustard yellow, gold and pink coral, a very trendy colour this year.

Outdoor sitting rooms

Have you got quite a spacious outdoor area? You can therefore create an authentic outdoor lounge! In the last few years, outdoor lounges have become lighter, more functional and compact: this makes them easy to move in the evet of rain, but also simple to stack and cover in the cold season. Choose a complete set and add a special touch by putting down an outdoor carpet coordinated with fabrics and cushions: a really striking solution which will delight your guests.

Add another place at the table!

Thanks to the fragrance of flowers and plants, a laid table on the terrace and in the garden is able to lend a great touch of style to the outdoors. Spending pleasant moments outdoors, around a table sharing a good meal or savouring excellent drinks, creates a sense of continuity with the indoors that can instil a comfortable feeling among all the guests. Great attention is needed regarding the question of sustainability of the furnishing materials, therefore fully approved natural fibres and certified materials and 100% respect for the surrounding nature.

Fairy lights

An essential element of outdoor spaces is the lighting, fundamental for spending pleasant evenings in company. Outdoor trends for 2022 include fairy lights, to be hung on trees or on the parapets of balconies and terraces. To take care of all the smallest details and make the atmosphere also slightly exotic, our advice is to also place candles or lanterns on the tables or at the feet of the chairs, even better if they are perfumed. With regards to the lights, if you want to be innovative, you can opt for a smart version, and command the lighting, changing it directly from a smartphone, perhaps changing the colour of the light according to the event!

Contemporary exotic

The finishes for pavings and walkways are fundamental for lending character and elegance to our outdoors. Coinciding with the latest Milan Design Week, Coem launched exclusively online and at the showroom in Fiorano Modenese (MO), a new original and bright colour, Light Green, which enriches the BALI collection and completes the range of colours dedicated to nature. It is a perfect finish with an exotic taste, ideal for making our outdoor space unique and welcoming. The name of this collection refers to a dream island, a refuge from our chaotic daily lives. BALI has a wild and natural feel, far from chaos, warm and fragrant, a possible paradise to be created for our gardens and swimming pools. With its porcelain stoneware with material colours and a decisive and irregular structure, BALI transforms the outdoors into compact oases, rich in natural suggestions. With the Light Green colour, the effect will be able to enrich outdoor environments, but can also be used for indoor settings, creating a continuity between spaces and facilitating the dialogue between man and nature.
