Combining Styles: French-Inspired Home With Contemporary Patio Furniture
Designers were able to successfully mix styles by keeping with the home's exterior neutral color scheme across the outdoor furniture and accessories. The more contemporary patio furniture blends well with the French Provincial theme because it does not take a lead in the overall scheme; rather, the furniture's simple lines and structure blend with the evenness of the architecture.

Soft creams and yellows, baskets overflowing with flowering plants and beautiful floral patterns call to mind the relaxed, yet chic style in the South of France. Use a natural sisal or jute rug to let the colors and patterns of your decor pop.
