3 SIMPLE WAYS TO UPDATE YOUR OUTDOOR SPACE FOR THE SUMMER

Design TipsAmy BennettComment

Is your outdoor space ready for BBQ's and entertaining? With Memorial day being next week, I thought it was the perfect time to talk about summer backyard decor. I am sharing 3 easy looks to help you update your deck, patio and yard for this summers fun and entertaining.

Look #1 is perfect for a small porch, deck or patio. Even small spaces can have big style! I used a small patterned rug and some casual bistro seating.  Adding a couple pillows to the chairs will add a pop of color and extra comfort. I layered some planters in different sizes with cactus plants inside for low maintenance care. I like to use a couple lanterns to add a cozy feel to outdoor spaces. I placed a wood tray with a pitcher and stemless wine glasses on the table to finish off the look. 

Look #2 Is a modern conversation area centered around this amazing cement fire pit.  I used a patterned rug with lots of texture and some sleek seating.  I only added a couple pillows to the chairs to add pattern without looking over-done. Again, I layered some planters in different sizes with cactus plants inside for low maintenance care. To finish off the look, I hung a couple lanterns to add a cozy feel while still looking modern.

Look #3 is a transition style with coastal flair.  I used a large striped rug and some comfortable conversational seating.  I added lots of pillows to the sofa and chairs for a pop of color and extra comfort. I layered some planters in different sizes with cactus plants inside for low maintenance care. I used some outdoor ottomans that can be used as a foot rest, extra seating or you can add a tray on top and use as a side table like I have here. To finish off the look, I placed different lanterns around the space to add a cozy feel.   

For less than $1500 You can create a wonderful space in your own back yard with just a few large pieces (Seating and table), a rug and some accessories. Which look is your favorite? Let us know in the comment section below! Want to get these looks? Keep reading below for links!
