Styling your Outdoor Area

There is nothing more relaxing than sitting in your backyard on the patio on a late summer afternoon and having a glass of wine. It's what we live for!

I have a few tips for styling our outdoor areas:

  • Add distinctive spaces ~ a space for eating, a space for conversation, a space for firepit, etc.

  • Add an outdoor rug ~ it breaks up the space.

  • Add more than one umbrella ~ they are beautiful and we all need the shade.

  • Add lots of pops of color ~ you can't go wrong.

  • Add lots of pretty flowers in pretty pots.

  • Add lanterns that flicker at night ~ there are so many options!

  • Add string patio lights ~ lighting make the whole scene at night.

  • While we're at it, add candles!

  • Add a fire area ~ I have three, and old fireplace my husband's grandfather built, a gas fire pit and a tall fire heater.

  • Add comfort ~ lots of cushions, pillows and blankets.

  • Add small tables to put your drinks on.

  • Add a garden if you can ~ I have an herb garden and a zinnia garden.

  • Add a potting bench ~ it is so useful!! It doubles when entertaining as a beverage, food station.

  • Add some hanging plants up high ~ height gives a layer of dimension

I hope this gives you some inspiration for your outdoor area. The most important thing to add to your outdoor area are some good people and some good stiff drinks!!
