As the first week of spring comes to an end, the weather is warming up and we are ready to enjoy relaxing and entertaining in our favorite outdoor living spaces. Whether it be a cozy screened-porch, private garden patio, or backyard pool, we have rounded up the best tips to create the perfect outdoor space this spring.
Define Your Space. Create a clearly defined space with thoughtfully placed furniture, patio stones, or plantings to ensure privacy and functionality.
Keep it Natural. Use elements from nature to make your space feel fresh and vibrant. Wood, stone, metal, and plantings add life and dimension to any outdoor space.
Make it Comfortable. Everyone enjoys the outdoors differently, and it’s important to make sure your space is comfortable for you. If you’re sensitive to the sun, add sunshades or a cabana. If you love to lounge, fill your space with outdoor cushions.
Set the Mood. In the heat of summer, evenings are often the preferred time of day to enjoy the outdoors. Add ambience to your outdoor space with string lights, candles, or even a fireplace if the space allows.
Play with Patterns. Mix up your look as the seasons change by swapping out accent tables, cushions or potted arrangements. Mix bright and bold patterns with neutrals for a fresh and fun spring look.
