7 Ways to Style Your Outdoor Space



1. Let there be light.

Outdoor lighting is the easiest way to add ambiance to your patio. 

And these days there's tons of funky options out there-that'll inspire

you to stray beyond classic string lights. We love globe lights to

create a playful, but subtle outdoor lighting.

2. Roll out the outdoor carpet. 

Indoor/outdoor rugs make an outdoor space feel like an outdoor room.

They add style and comfort, plus they're incredibly easy to clean and

very durable. The Swedish brand Pappelina is one of our favorites. Never

worry about spilled red wine again!

3. Turn up the heat.

There is few things in life more wonderful than sitting around a fire in good

company under a clear night sky. The addition of a fire pit is an instant

game changer for a yard- especially if you have kids!

 4. Put your feet up.

There's nothing more relaxing than a lazy summer morning, reading

a good book and swaying with the breeze. We've been loving the

addition of a swinging seat that doubles as a sculptural piece for

the porch and adds a little geometric to the organic- like the

Manu Nest below!

5. Get creative with your planters.

Create your own backyard jungle with a variety of planters ranging in

size, color or double as an art piece. As for the plants, don't be afraid

to try long grasses or leafy, creeping vines. We love the unique planters

of Opiary as a statement piece for the garden.

6. Accessorize with throw pillows. 

Throw pillows are a great way to add color and texture to any space,

plus it makes it a bit cozier. We love the vintage Suzanis for adding a

bohemian vibe.

7. Have drinks on deck. 

The addition of a bar cart to your patio makes entertaining easy to

organize-plus it can be wheeled inside afterwards. Whether its used

as a counteror decorative plant stand, patio shelve space is always
