:: 3 Quick Tips To Spring Your Patio Back To Life ::

Standard

Tuesday Tips

Kick back with the pup on this cozy coastal patioSpring is right around the corner and it’s been heating up here in Southern California! The last couple of days have been nice and hopefully it’s been the same for your area as well. Looks like a quick day of rain, but then we’re  back to the good weather!

Not sure about you, but we’re all ready to be outside in the sun. When the time comes, we want to maximize our patio with as much comfort and style as we can. That’s why we have 3 quick tips for your spring patio! Get your patio ready for the weather and sun with these tips!

1. Use Colors.

Don’t be afraid to use a little color outside! Sure the spring flowers show bring lots of color, but do the flowers match your interior’s color palette? Or do you want the outside to start a fresh, new palette for your patio space! There’s no need to shy away from colors! Let the hues jump out and shine like they’re meant to in spring!

2. Use Different Types of Materials.

The tip’s title pretty much says it all. Don’t limit yourself to only one type of material on your patio. There are a ton of natural materials that work great outdoors and even plenty of ‘indoor’ materials that work well outside in the weather. They just might need to be pulled in from time to time.

3. Use Plants & Flowers.

This one is a no brainer! Bring some lush, green plants onto the patio space and really feel surrounded by the outdoors. Like we mentioned above, the flowers are strangers to color so use them to brighten up your patio! Make them the standout decor in your patio space!

Fall entryway ready to greet the guests with perfect decorThere’s no fighting it, fall is here and the leaves are definitely changing. There’s no need to guess anymore, Mother Nature is letting us know. If you haven’t already started decorating for the fall then this blog post is just for you! We’ve got 3 quick tips on to decorate for the fall! These tips will help you get started and should inspire you to keep decorating for the fall. Ready or not, here comes autumn!

1. Let The Great Outdoors Help.

Mother Nature is one of the greatest decorators to ever exist. If you really think about it, she’s probably responsible for one of your favorite spots (first, of course, is the wonderful bathtub with a glass of wine). Let her help out and bring some of those fall colors inside! Bring those beautiful reds, yellows and oranges into the your home. Grab some wild grass and bundle it up for display. There’s no reason you shouldn’t take advantage of the changing of colors and to let Mother Nature do the heavy lifting for you.

2. Design With Warmth In Mind.

Now we’re not just talking about layering up, laying out extra blankets or constantly having the fire place going – those are a given. We’re talking about colors! You’ve already decided to bring in the fall colors with floral accents, so why not drive it home with complimentary colors? Create warm and inviting spaces for everyone! Guest season is starting, so why not give them a great welcome with your love and beautiful fall home decor?

3. Don’t Be Afraid To Get Out.

It hasn’t started snowing yet! Fall gives you a few more chances to get outside to enjoy the backyard or patio! Just grab your warmest sweater, a few extra blankets, a warm beverage of choice and enjoy the beautiful outdoors! If you’ve got a fire pit, it gives you a few more chances to really turn up the heat! Think about some extra comfy padding for that outdoor furniture set because you’re not done using it yet!

Tuesday Tips

Beautiful Coastal outdoor space decorated with bright colors creating a tropical styleDo you have a beautiful outdoor space that you’re not fully taking advantage of/borderline abusing?

Do you have the space to create an outdoor space and still haven’t?

If you answered yes to either of these questions, shame on you! Thankfully, we know exactly how to fix that problem! But really, why not create the perfect coastal outdoor space?

If you’re struggling to create a dreamy outdoor space listen up. It’s as easy as this: create a space that is so comfortable you never want to leave. Seriously. We’re not joking. If you design an outdoor space to be as utterly and ridiculously comfortable as an outdoor space can possibly be, you will never want to leave. You will yearn for sunny days and drift into a state of longing for your comfortable spot outside. There’s really not much more to it, it’s quite simple. Employ outdoor furniture such as a day bed to help with this task or a large, cozy chair that demands relaxation and you will no longer spend days indoors.
