Finally, the cooler weather that we have been experiencing is starting to lift and its beginning to warm up! This is the time of year that we cook, relax, and entertain outdoors. So, let’s talk about how to make your outdoor space fabulous! To start, we are way past the plastic outdoor furniture and onto more gorgeous, quality pieces that are made for the outdoors but could easily fit in just as well inside. Be the envy of your neighbors with these quick tips!

1. Lighting:
Outdoor light is key so you can enjoy being in the fresh air all day long. There are amazing outdoor fans that include LED light fixtures, ambient string lights that add the romantic feel over a dining area, and even indoor/outdoor chandeliers that offer plenty of lighting to assure for quality conversations over a great bottle of wine. Other lighting options are up-lighting, path lighting, and step lights to highlight focal landscaping as well as to assure people get from one area to another safely.

2. Furniture:
One of the best ways to gather and catch up with friends and family is to do it over a good meal…so one space that will create the most impact is an attractive dining area. Here is a set above that provides a fresh, sophisticated setting that is timeless in design.

3. Soft Finishes: 
Soft finishes are the items added to really bring the indoors out. These accessories include things like outdoor drapery, throws and pillows, and outdoor area rugs. These are also the perfect way to bring some fun pops of color and patterns to the space. If you need some guidance with your indoor or outdoor spaces…give us a call and we can set up that initial consult to discuss your next project.
