SEATTLE, June 16, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Zillow Digs® announced the top outdoor living trends for 2016 and the three biggest fads to ditch from 2015. Concrete coffee tables, teak chairs or dining sets and bright, aquamarine colors are predicted to be some of the biggest outdoor trends for summer 2016, according to the latest Zillow Digs Home Trend Forecast, a one-of-a-kind report combining data from a survey of interior design experts and an analysis of popular photos on Zillow Digs.

"Clean, simple and contemporary is the vibe for outdoor living in 2016," says Kerrie Kelly, Zillow Digs home design expert. "Anything high-maintenance, intricate or over-styled will be replaced with materials that can both withstand the elements and transition beautifully between seasons. Natural wood outdoor furniture will take center stage, but will be modernized by concrete or stainless steel accent materials, which will pop up in anything from chair legs to coffee table tops."

Top Three Outdoor Patio Trends for 2016:

    1. The "New" Concrete Typically mixed with fiberglass and resin for a softer
       look, designers predict elements of concrete to show up in anything from
       coffee tables to tastefully stamped concrete patio floors. While this may
       seem like a surprising trend to some, experts say homeowners will
       gravitate towards the material's sleek, contemporary vibe and all-weather
       functionality.

    2. Teak Furniture From Adirondack chairs to modern platform seating,
       furniture made from teak or other natural wood will take outdoor living
       by storm. For a fresh modern twist, design experts predict teak furniture
       to often include elements of stainless steel or concrete.

    3. Aquamarine Aquamarine will be the most popular statement color for summer
       2016. From throw pillows to umbrellas, expect to see this vibrant marine
       hue popping up in a variety of materials and textures this season.
       Aquamarine is versatile and adds warmth and interest to any space. It
       also pairs seamlessly with slate gray and natural wood textures.

Conversely, Three Fads to Forget:

    1. Wrought iron furniture: Ornate patio sets are headed out of style, as
       summer 2016 is all about simplicity and clean lines. Instead, homeowners
       will gravitate towards more modern furniture adorned with plush pillows
       and throw blankets for a stylish, yet comfortable vibe.
    2. High-maintenance lawns: This season homeowners will move away from
       designing outdoor spaces that require expensive, year-round maintenance.
       Instead they will spend their time and energy creating a comfortable,
       curated outdoor living space that feels like an extension of their home.
    3. Floral patterns: Intricate patterns, especially florals are overdone and
       quickly fading out of style. Instead, designers predict a rise in solid,
       yet vibrant colors like tangerine and aquamarine to take center stage.
