Warmer weather is finally arriving! It’s time to kick back, relax, and soak up some sunshine outdoors. As we are spending more family time at home, it’s time to step back and evaluate the atmosphere of your backyard patio, dining, or lounge space. Brighten things up before summer begins by following these 4 easy steps!
- Start with a clean slate! Remove all clutter, planters, cushions, accessories, lighting, etc. Stand back and evaluate the bones of your space. Does it achieve the function you need? Dining, lounging, fire pit, or conversational, make sure it serves its purpose!
- Set a visual goal for the space by choosing a color palette. Begin with the choice between warm or cool colors, then expand into muted neutrals or pops of color! Build your flower and plant choices, pillows, dining ware, and more around this like-minded palette for a cohesive look.
- Choose a single word to best describe your desired ambiance. Whether that be “tropical”, “fresh”, “rustic”, or “bohemian”, this will help give your space a vibe and aesthetic direction!
- Tie it all together! Arrange your chosen rugs, cushions, throws, planters, flowers, lighting, and accessories to achieve your dream space!
Once complete, sit in your space and evaluate if your brightened-up atmosphere was achieved. Now it’s time to enjoy the company of your loved ones in the perfect space to welcome and celebrate the arrival of the summer season!
