Summer heralds in outdoor entertaining, pool days, and barbecues. Before you bust out the flip-flops and shades and invite the block over, take these outdoor design tips into consideration.
1. Color coordinate with flowers
Summer is the season for coordinating your outdoor decor’s color scheme with bright floral blooms. Many popular cultivars of impatiens, begonias, petunias, snapdragons, daisies, morning glories, and other blooms are available in a rainbow of colors – grab a few flower pots and match them to the setting.
2. Coordinate the color of the outdoor upholstery with the rest of the setting
Do you have an outdoor entertainment area decked out with all-weather sofas or other seating? If you do, keep a rotation of cushions or cushion covers so you can coordinate them with the theme or colors of the rest of your decor. Better yet, you can add comfort and further enhance your outdoor seating area with fun and functional premium quality waterproof pillows, like those offered by Briarwood Lane.
3. Add accent lights or garden touches
Sunset doesn’t mean the company has to clear out, and accent lights are a great way to set the mood. Add a set of garden torches or copper table torches to off soft, lambent light late into the after-hours, or set up LED string lights for some additional ambiance.
Another great tip is to light walkways with solar landscape lights – they show guests where to go and add atmosphere.
4. Wall art or a trellis is a nice touch
Hang a trellis on the wall to give your climbing vines somewhere to grow, or just to serve as an attachment point for your other ornaments.
You can also decorate the walls with all-weather hangings and other creative wall art to set the mood. Wooden carvings, resin reliefs, and woven art all add a nice, summery, coastal aesthetic.
As a fun and unique alternative to traditional artwork, you can hang decorative flags from uniquely designed wrought iron wall brackets or tree hooks that make swapping out your artwork a breeze for any season, holiday, celebration or event.
5. Drop-in a decorative summer house flag or patriotic bunting
Summer rings in the Fourth of July, so patriotic-themed flags are another great way to add color to your outdoor spaces, as are embroidered patriotic American buntings which are great for eaves, walls, porches, and patios.
But don’t stop there – floral, tropical, and coastal-themed summer house flags can also add a nice touch. Have a pool? Welcome your friends to a poolside party with a fun “Welcome to the Pool” themed garden flag!
6. Get creative with garden sculptures
Wildly popular garden gnomes are just one of many options for garden decor – there are countless garden sculptures out there that can be used to put a nice accent on your aesthetic.
Consider sundials, birdbaths, glass spheres, resin, metal, wooden sculptures, or kinetic wind spinners that coordinate with your exterior design and color scheme, and then tastefully arrange them around your yard.
Looking for a unique way to add some charm to your home or garden? Consider windsocks, hot air balloon twisters and other hanging wind art to add some whimsy and motion to your outdoor space.
7. Build (or buy) a Fire Pit
An outdoor fire pit, chiminea, or fireplace is often the focal point of outdoor gatherings, but not everyone has time or space to build one.
That doesn’t mean you can’t have one though. A simple fire bowl would suffice; just make sure it’s made from a dense metal, like iron or bronze. They last longer, look nicer, and will further enhance your outdoor space. Your guests will love to cozy up in an Adirondack chair, and roast s’mores, while admiring your fun and unique outdoor decor.
8. Creative door hangers add a nice touch
Door hangers are another nice little way to add some instant cheer to your home and welcome your guests in style. Decorate your doors with patriotic, farm-themed, floral, beachy, or other hangings to complete your look. Better yet, coordinate your door hangers with a matching decorative doormat or natural fiber coir doormat to really make an impression on your guests.
