Outdoors with Style

Source: Flickr.com Danielle de Lange

Warm weather is here, and we can’t wait to spend some time outside, especially for folks like me who had to deal with a snowy winter.  While we are all planning fun BBQs with friends, trying new recipes for cocktails and dishes or warming up to hot tea and a good book, we realize something is missing.  Our patios, decks, terraces or gardens are in desperate need of styling.

If you live in a big city like NYC, you probably have a tiny space. No worries! It can still be cozy and cool.

Color! Neutrals are so peaceful but fun strong colors also bring happiness to the heart. Re-energize your outdoors with bright tones.

Not into bright colors but love contrast?

Consider the right amount of lighting so you can enjoy it at dusk. You can have hanging lamps, scones, light series or candles if you don’t have a fireplace or fire pit to lighten it up.
