With the beautiful sunny, warm weather we are naturally drawn to the outside. Creating your own “Outdoor Room” is one of the hottest trends this summer season. Bringing the indoors outside - to your patio, deck or backyard areas does not have to be costly or too time consuming. Why not do a weekend makeover of your own “Outdoor Room”? I hope these photos will give you a good sense of how your own Outdoor Room could look – take note of all the various pieces that they have used.
Important pieces that you will need include: an outdoor rug, seating that encourages comfort & conversation, some form of lighting & tables to hold your drinks, food or plants.
Want to freshen up your patio or seating area? New outdoor cushions are a very easy and inexpensive way to bring a new energy and look to your exsisting set.
Visit your nearest dollar store to pick up some great new, trendy & colourful summer plates, candles, patterned napkins & garden accessories – all at great prices!
Don’t forget about when nightime comes – make sure you have some sort ot “lighting” – various forms include – solar table lamps, mini lights to add to umbrellas, paper lanterns, metal lanterns of all sizes and of course various candle holders that can hold battery operated candles or regular candles. Lighting is key this outdoor season.
You may find that you even have some of these items already! Decide where you would like your Outdoor Room to be – do you have some sort of covering? a sunshade? umbrella? gazebo?
By pulling all these items together you will be amazed at what your end result will be!
Have fun & most of all I hope that you enjoy your new “Outdoor Room”.
