Great Ideas for Better Outdoor Living


1. A Spot to Sit

Any outdoor living space benefits from lots of cozy seating. This bench is the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or just relax and enjoy the beautiful flower garden. A latticework trellis adds texture.


2. Go Bold

Give your outdoor space a unique flair by choosing a bold color for your furniture. On a budget? It’s amazing what a can of spray paint will do for old, rusty furniture. The cheery orange used on this outdoor furniture is also found inside, helping connect indoor and outdoor spaces.

3. Rustic Retreat

For an outdoor space with rustic, natural beauty, install a flagstone patio or walk. This home features a stone facade similar to the irregular stones used on the patio -- connecting the house to its surroundings. Lush plantings dotted with bright, colorful flowers line both sides of the patio.

4. Hang a Hammock

There's nothing quite like taking a Sunday afternoon nap in your own backyardhammock. Don't worry if you don't have two perfectly spaced trees to hang one from. Attach the hammock to a pergola like these homeowners did, and still benefit from the shade the pergola provides. A hammock stand is another option.

5. Indoor Inspiration

When planning your outdoor space, consider the things you love about your indoor spaces and apply the same concepts. Here, a bright painting on the wall, matching throw pillows, cushioned furniture, and a beverage cart add comfort and convenience while giving a nod to indoor living.

6. Add Style Underfoot

A patterned area rug, like this one featuring bold blue stripes, is a quick and easy way to give an outdoor space an updated look. Stylish and practical indoor-outdoor rugs made of fade- and mildew-resistant materials can add big impact with low maintenance.

7. Pillows for Pattern and Color

Brightening an outdoor space can be as easy as swapping out throw pillows. Here, bamboo chairs and a sofa featuring bright white cushions are accented with mismatched pillows featuring playful, seasonal patterns.
