Modern Scandinavian chic. The Scandinavians are masters of clean and simple design. The look here has been achieved by layering varying soft shades of modern gray in different textures, such as bleached wood, simple stone and clean painted lines. The designer has also added some contrasting warmer wood tones for an unexpected twist.
To achieve a modern Scandinavian look on your patio, go for uncluttered, simple furniture pieces with clean lines in black or gray wood. Choose a simple palette of one or two colors — grays or whites would work well. If this feels too sterile for you, try adding a little warm, colored wood (such as a reclining sun chair) or brightly colored (such as burnt orange or mustard yellow) seat cushions. For a touch of something natural, grow pots of simple green plants in black containers.
