That’s right! Get out of my blog!
Just kidding. But you should get out, and I mean outside! Now that summer is here, have a barbecue or go to the beach! If you simply don’t have the time, you can still enjoy the great outdoors this season from your very own porch! And while you’re at it, you might as well make it look great!
Give your boring, wooden flooring a makeover and use colorful rugs. Bold patterns such as stripes help make a statement and will surely catch the eye of any passerby. Keep your palettes and patterns in check, as perfected in the picture above. The blues and greens are kept in check with the whites while the rest of the furniture remains simple but interesting by putting similar patterns on the throw pillows.
Because summer is all about colors and bloom, using colored pots for your plants is a marriage in heaven that will surely light up your entire garden. You can also mix it up by using different patterns and sizes for your pots, or color coordinating the flowers with their containers.
And if you’re up to the challenge, create an outdoor space and chill out in your garden. The picture above exemplifies the perfect backyard escape: Fun, colorful cushions that pop out amidst the greenery and accentuated with colorful lanterns and fabric for a simple but effective backdrop. All of this topped off with the arbor that serves as both wall and ceiling for you to experience a lush, breezy atmosphere in your own home. Now who wouldn’t want that?
