How to create the perfect outdoor oasis
Creating the perfect outdoor space can be quite the task. Start by choosing a theme. Having a theme in mind helps to simplify the process. Is your style modern farm house, boho chic, coastal, or more mid-century modern?
Start with your seating – this will set the tone for how the entire space will be laid out. I found this one – a weave outdoor sectional at Wal-mart for around $1,000. It’s a very versatile piece and can work with any space. The neutral colors will allow you to go in many directions.
Next you want to add in your textiles. You can go bold or neutral with your rug. The rug is a must, as it adds coziness to the space. The rug I found at Walmart can go with many different styles.
And don’t forget the pillows! These adorable pillows were also found at Walmart. I love to mix different prints and textures in the pillows. It makes the space really pop!
Side tables are very important to set drinks down or small plates. I usually will keep the color scheme going with the end tables. It’s much more interesting adding a pop of color on the end tables.
If you have a smaller space this 3-piece patio set would work great! Its functional and also very stylish. If you have a larger backyard this would also look good to fill any open areas you just aren’t sure what to do with.
Don’t forget to accessorize your space with planters, greenery, fountains, wind chimes and a fire pit. I linked a few options below.
How adorable is this egg chair!? These are SO in right now!
If you want to roast some marshmellows and stay warm in the evening I highly recommend getting a fire pit! I linked this one from Walmart. It adds extra coziness to your outdoor space.
During the summer our outdoor space is definitely an extension of our living room. Tony and I will be sipping on our glass of wine, while Isla plays in her kiddie pool. I’m still working on our patio once its finished, I’ll be sure to link all of the products here. Stay tuned for that post.
Have a great weekend everyone!
