Looking to spruce up your outside space? It’s a great time to do it! With the warm weather, we’re sure you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, whether it’s watching the kids splash in the pool (or shoot each other with water guns) or seeing what blooming in your garden. Maybe you’re just spending the summer nights on the porch, enjoying the nice warm breeze. No matter what is drawing you outdoors, make sure the space you find yourself in is inviting. It’s easier than you think, and we’re here to help.
The front porch has taken over this year as the space people are spending more of their time. It’s becoming more of a social center, as people in the neighborhoods can frequently be found lounging with a glass of iced tea, maybe a good book, or the company of a neighbor. Rocking chairs are a staple, and what better than a vintage rocker? Sit down for a spell in a chair with charm and just enjoy the peace and the slower pace.
Gallery walls are also popular for outdoor decor, so you can take your favorite decorating trends and carry the theme from inside out. Is farmhouse your thing? Or are you feeling the nautical vibe? Whatever your preference, decorate the outdoor walls to help bring cohesion and a bit of fun.
If you’re going to be spending so much time outside, then it’s natural you’ll want to sit and enjoy a meal. More and more people are bringing much of their daily life outside on nice days, including mealtime. What better than to sit outside in the sunshine, catch up on your day, and enjoy a burger off the grill, or even just relax and have a cup of tea?
Metal continues to be a hot trend in outdoor decor. It’s a great way to combine the natural with the industrial, or to add touches of whimsy to your garden. From elegant baskets to adorable birds, metal elements can help you add that missing touch.
