With summer on the horizon, it’s time to reevaluate how to utilize outdoor space. We’ve spent the last six months perfecting our work-from-home areas inside and now it’s time to transition that style outside! Here are a few of our favorite quick tips on how to make your outdoor space an oasis you’ll never want to leave.
It’s no surprise that being outside makes us feel like kids again! Adding interesting and fun elements are a way to let playful and creative spirit’s shine. Consider interesting chairs such as these hanging swings or funky concrete drink tables which pack an easy and interesting punch.
PUMP UP YOUR COLORS
Don’t just use colorful rugs and pillows indoors, bring them outside! Urban Country carries various indoor/outdoor fabrics such as Sunbrella, Perennials, and more. We can help customize cushions & pillows to reflect your style and instantly elevate space as an extension of your interiors. We find this to be one of the most cost-effective ways to level up your outdoor areas!
DON’T FORGET ABOUT THE EXTRAS
If you really want to wow family and guests, dress up your tablescape with accessories that can live outdoors. Our favorite addition to any outdoor table is using candles. While there is nothing better than the great outdoors, multiple sources of light ensure that the evening doesn’t have to end early. Votives and hurricanes are subtle ways to add visual interest while also being practical as they block wind. Another great way to add mood lighting is to hang bistro lights from overhead branches.
BRING YOUR PLANTS TO LIFE
Don’t forget about adding some wildlife into your vignettes! Adding flowering trees and shrubs can provide privacy. For pops of color, incorporate plants and fresh-cut flowers so you can bring nature closer to you. Pick plants that vary in shape and size and give them a proper home in a gorgeous planter.
