Congrats to all recent or soon-to-be graduates out there! Time to put those four (or more) years of endless studying behind you and kick off the next chapter with a vibrant, post-finals fiesta. Take your cue from interior designer Brian Patrick Flynn and use bright, playful hues to set the mood for your design. Create a cozy spot to catch-up over cocktails with a stunning aqua wicker sofa, piled high with coral and graphic, black-and-white pillows. Be sure the guest of honor has first dibs on the breezy rope hammock swing (i.e. the best seat in the house) and add a modern white end table for guests to park party snacks before heading back for a second helping of pineapple and black bean guacamole. Continue with the crisp aesthetic and scatter two or three white bamboo planter boxes, overflowing with cheerful summer blooms. Shop all the musts to prep your patio for a post-grad party in the links below.
