And a hint- it is easy.
and initially, I left it off the patio and started
and it was perfect.
#5 Steer clear from rooms ready to go
Something I learned a long time ago was to avoid buying ‘rooms’ in sets.
Think ‘collected’ rather than ‘ I walked into the store and brought home a living room ‘
Mix and match the styles and era of the pieces.
Sure it is easier to buy an outdoor seating group with a sofa and 2 chairs
and coffee table and put it on the patio and call it good. B
ut for that cottage charm- you want to bring elements and pieces together
that didn’t naturally start that way.
That thrift store find with the new chairs and pillows
with your grandmothers favorite pitcher to hold the flowers.
Those pieces mixing and mingling tell a story that is charming and interesting.
#6. Just go with what you love.
so decorate it the way you would decorate your indoor spaces
and decorate it the way that makes you happy.
or these dainty wicker chairs-
Sprinkle it with personal touches and style
and create something that is comfortable and beautiful
as well as links to the other bloggers who are sharing their refreshed patios as well.
