Don’t forget to accessorize. It’s the best way to add some flair to the outdoors that can cater to your style. Try incorporating more organic items; you are outside after all! Organic items can include rocks, a collection of sea shells, or flowers. Other accessory ideas are statues, jars, and wind chimes. The options are endless, but be sure not to add to much clutter to your surfaces. Your eye naturally turns to the outdoors so keep your accessories to a minimum so as not to steal all of the attention.
Lastly, an important part of keeping your backyard always looking great is paying close attention to the condition of your current furniture. Every surface is unique and requires different care from your wood to wicker to metal. Make sure to read the care manual the furniture came with or that you can find online.
Now that you know how to style your space, where should you shop? I have a few go to places when purchasing outdoor furniture for clients. If you are looking to add a punch of color to your outdoor setting try looking at World Market. Some of my favorite items are their umbrellas and throw pillows. If you are in need of fun and funky accessories look no further than CB2 and Pier 1. CB2 has a more modern feel, while Pier 1 has an eclectic vibe. West Elm has a nice array of outdoor lighting, vases, and jars. It’s also a great source for a mid century modern look.
By following these suggestions I have no doubt that your backyard will be looking festive for the party. Have a fantastic time enjoying the fresh air!
