Perfecting Your Outdoor Living Spaces
Your home’s outdoor spaces are more than just curb appeal. They are also an actual extension of your family’s living areas. As such, they need to be decorated with the same enthusiasm and attention to detail you use for your home’s interior. So, where should you start?
First, decide on your goal for your design. Do you want your decor to blend into your home’s natural surroundings? Or are you all about adding interest to your space?
If you’re about blending and your property is on a lake or inland, you should consider using teaks and darker metals for your main furnishings.
If you are blending on the oceanfront, you’ll want to consider wickers, natural stones, ropes, and weathered woods for your main items.
If you’re looking to create more interest, you might want to consider painted white furniture. Whites allow bright colors to explode. Using white can also create a subtle look, but hands down there is no better color to use to create high contrast than a crisp white! If you are not ready to commit to white frames, we suggest you consider using bright white cushions as your backdrop.
Once your main pieces are chosen, the next step is to introduce your personality to your outdoor areas. In addition to your fabrics, consider unique outdoor lighting, colorful area rugs, outdoor art and decor, and several fun pull-up tables to add interest to your design.
Finally, make sure your outdoor areas work well with one another by incorporating a mutual fabric or design. Now all you have to do is make time to enjoy your beautiful home!
