Whether you live by the beach, by a lake, in the woods, or in the deep South, summer is finally upon us, and this means spending your days and nights outdoors! Enjoying the fresh air never felt better while in the comfort of your own home in your new extended space. Here are the Top 5 ways you can jazz up your outdoor space, and bring the outside in!
1.) Nana Doors
No, this is not a special door or entry for your Nana. These doors are an amazing design utilized in tropical areas of the world that allow you create one big open space that leads you outside to your lanai or patio. Not only do Nana Doors create and airy and sultry space, you do not have to live in the tropics to enjoy them in your home!
2.) Mirrored Accents
Adding Mirrored Accents, or an entire wall of Mirrors outdoors creates the illusion of more space, and gives you the feeling of being completely surrounded by your garden. Always a fan of mirrors in a small space, but once you add them outdoors, you’ll never want to leave! Antique Mirrors are perfect for your backsplash tile too.
3.) Chandelier Love
Adding an enchanting or vintage Chandelier to your covered patio or cabana offers ambient lighting and charm. Crystal Chandeliers will play with the natural light outdoors, and whimsical designs adds personality!
4.) Graphic Contrast
I love the look of Black, White, and Grey designs outdoors, and you can incorporate these Graphic Prints, and Chevron prints, through an Outdoor Rug, Throw Pillows, and Outdoor Curtains. Be sure the fabrics are rated for outdoors to endure the elements, and you are on your way to making your outdoor space feel like home! Try using Chevron Tiles for an outdoor kitchen backsplash.
5.) So Hot
Not only is this view from a rooftop terrace on fire, there are so many cool and contemporary Outdoor Fireplaces on the market! I am loving these simplistic designs, from glass enclosures to asymmetrical looks, you will surely be able to cozy up on a chilly Summer night.
