The Great Outdoors

During warmer months the outdoors can function as an extension of your living room. So why do we so often ignore it when it comes to decor? Ratty lawn chairs and a rusty grill do not make for an inviting outdoor oasis. Don’t hold back- decorate your patio or porch the same way you would the inside of your house, and create an inviting area for entertaining and lounging. Dining al fresco, playing lawn games or just reclining in style- your space can accomodate all of that, and maybe more. We’ve gathered up some inspiration for you to get started on embracing outdoor living, dining and decorating. Now go outside and enjoy.
