6 ways to get your patio ready for summer
As the warmer weather rolls in, Carolinians tend to gravitate towards the great outdoors. Whether you’re gearing up to roast marshmallows with the kids by the fire pit or host an intimate outdoor dinner, here are 6 ideas to turn your space into an outdoor oasis.
Add plenty of seating
Make sure you have enough seating for guests by adding inexpensive poufs to your outdoor entertainment area.
Create the perfect atmosphere
Designers recommend three levels of lighting to create a cozy environment. In addition to the adorable outdoor fan, Lauren adds ambiance with string lights, candles and hanging lanterns.
Add some natural elements
Who wouldn’t want to host a dinner party under those fabulous rattan and wicker lights? Complete the look with a beautiful floral spread to really wow your guests.
Dress up a plain brick wall by adding a garden trellis. Compliment the look by adding plenty of whimsical green plants and flowering shrubs.
Show your personality
Everything from the diamond pattern on the concrete floor to the vibrant flower pots and purple flowers comes together to make this space quite enjoyable. We also love how they added in some visual interest with the turquoise hanging planters.
This last look is simple but made stunning by the use of sleek black lanterns, working to create the perfect outdoor space to relax after a long day.
