During the warmer seasons of the year, we often tend to spend more time outdoors eating, drinking and generally relaxing. However, we don’t usually make use of our outdoor space throughout the seasons of the year, and we should.
Here are our top five tips for creating an outdoor space that is both beautiful and inviting, no matter the season:
1. Introduce some cushion covers
Who says you cannot feel the softness of some cushion covers outdoors? If you want to create an outdoor space which you would often want to spend some time in, then consider scattering some cushions on the benches and chairs. Apart from brightening up your space, the cushions will make the chairs and benches soft so you can spend more time outdoors.
2. Plants and flowers
Flowers and herbs can go a long way to spice up your outdoor space and make it look stunning. Apart from the natural tropical feel that the flowers can bring to your outdoor space, the fragrance from herbs can also add to make your outdoor experience an exciting one. If you don’t grow flowers already, you can cut some bunches from your garden or buy from the supermarket and use them to adorn your outdoor space.
We all love the sight of glowing candles in the dark; it does not only look delightful but also helps to make the environment look calm and serene. You can use candles to create a fantastic pattern in your outdoor space by simply placing the candles in a pot and arranging the pots in strategic locations in your outdoor area. If you don’t want to make use of candles, you could consider using low glow light bulbs, they usually look lovely and create an inviting ambience especially when the bulbs are of different colours.
A well-arranged outdoor table is not only beautiful, but it also makes you want to grab something and eat. It does not have to be a matching set of tableware; you just need to go for crockery that feels and looks beautiful.
5. Table linen
Most times, creating an outdoor space does not entail doing the big things, even something as little as using the right table linens and tablecloths can make all the difference. It does not have to be too formal or starchy; you just need something that adds a breezing beauty to your outdoor space.
