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


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!

Bright and simple coastal vignette with minimal detailsThis week’s Monday Pins post is all about keeping it simple because sometimes less is more. It’s a beautiful and elegant way to decorate, but doesn’t come as easy as you’d think. Keeping it simple when it comes to decor is a true art form. There’s a fine line between too little and too much. A great way to approach this style of decorating is to add items into a space and slowly remove pieces one by one. You can start to feel when the space feels too empty or still feels too full. Need a little inspiration? Then check these spaces out. Look how these designers have created beautiful, simple spaces with minimal decor. Get those pin buttons ready and pin these to your Pinterest boards while you hunt for more inspiration!
