Outdoor Living for the Summer

POSTED ON: June 24, 2016, BY Dallas Design Group

Summer is officially here and our backyards and patios get the most use, this time of the year.  Whether you want it to be your oasis or have something for entertaining, your patio may need a little more attention right about now.  Need some ideas on how to spruce it up? Here are a few tips that may help you enjoy the outdoors a little more.

Take a Seat

Choose seating that will be comfortable and fits perfectly in your outdoor living space.  Plenty of seating is a must if you plan on entertaining a lot this summer.  Try to incorporate some ottomans, fun chairs or even a hanging chair.  And while you’re are it, don’t forget to add some pillows for a pop of color or pattern.

Light It Up

Lighting is vital! Adding a grand chandelier, can add a great focal point to a patio.  Lighting on steps or a walkway can light up a pathway to and from the patio which can create great ambience on those more pleasant summer Texas nights!

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

Planters with flowers and/or plants can add such a beautiful touch to your outdoor space.  Whether you enjoy foliage or blooms, you can’t go wrong with either one.  Adding mirrors and candles outside can give the outdoors, a sense of indoors.

Make it Comfy

If you want your patio to be somewhat of a little getaway, having drapes in your outdoor patio can add a relaxing effect and give you some sense of privacy.  Another way to get some privacy, is with a covered pergola, which also gives you some shade from the Texas heat.  And if you really want to relax, how about adding a hammock under a tree?

I hope some of these ideas and tips help you create the most inviting outdoor living space for your guests and a relaxing oasis for you.

Happy First Week of Summer!
