:: 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!

:: 3 Tips To Fire Up The Fire Pit ::

Tuesday Tips

Coastal backyard space with a fire pit and goregous viewWith summer in full swing it’s time to consider setting up a fire pit if you don’t have one in your backyard. It’s a great place for the family to gather and spend the summer nights together. If you don’t have one, we’ve got three tips to help you get started. So keep reading and let’s make that fire pit happen this summer!

1. Make It Official.

First things first, find out what the rules and regulations are for a fire pit in your area. You might be in an area that has a high fire alert during the summer season which means strict laws or regulations, other areas are more relaxed. Safety first when it comes to fire and there’s no reason to risk it.

2. Built In or Portable.

After you find out what the rules are for your new fire pit it’s time to decide how you want to go about it. Do you want to build a permanent installation or do you want something you can move around and store during the off seasons? With both styles there are pros and cons. Some things to consider are price, style and size.

3. Pick Your Location.

Last, but definitely not least, you need to pick your location. This needs to be your favorite spot in your backyard. Maybe a spot with a view? Maybe a spot with lots of space? Pick your spot, set up your fire pit and then break out the marshmallows while you enjoy the summer nights around the fire.

Tuesday’s Tips

Take advantage of that outdoor space that’s been given to you! Whether it’s in the front or back of your home you can maximize your home and space with proper design. Do you have a deck, patio, porch, or free space in the backyard? Whatever it may be it’s time to use it. First things first you need some type of furniture. This creates a place for everyone to gather around. Next is a table of some sort. This way if you want to bring food or drinks out you can. Plus now you have something to decorate and a place for decor. Now it’s time for the rug. A nice indoor/outdoor or just outdoor rug will really define the space. It will turn your random furniture sitting outside into a real outdoor space waiting to be used. Bring on the accessories! Time to really make your outdoor space look like another room in the house. The best and obvious choice for outdoor decor – candles. They are a must have for any outdoor space. The rest is up to you. Want to bring out some fun glass jugs or coasters? Do it! Hopefully it will cool down around here and we can actually go outside and enjoy it for a change. Is it fall yet?
