Ready for warm summer nights spent outside? Add instant glamour to your outdoor area with these 4 easy ideas:
Hang Sheer Drapery
Nothing says effortless elegance like swaths of sheer white fabric fluttering in the wind. Hang it on a pergola or at the edge of a roofed porch and complete the look with a calming neutral color palette of whites & greys.
Layer Pillows & Rugs
If don’t have the space or the budget to invest in outdoor furniture, create a comfortable and exotic seating area by layering a couple of rugs and several pillows in the spot you would like to entertain in. This idea can work virtually anywhere–a patio, a deck, a yard–the possibilities are endless! Play with different heights to create dimension by creating different heights. We like to drape throws over a simple bench and covering it with pillows. Poufs & a few low-sitting tables will provide a place for guests to place their drinks.
Create Your Own Canopy
A fabric canopy adds instant drama plus shade from the sun. Simply drape fabric between four poles that you’ve put into the ground and use tent pins to anchor the lines that run from the pole tops to the lawn. Get a full how to here.
Mini Fabric Lamps
Outdoor lighting provides a romantic setting as the sun sets. Bring colorful & easy lighting to your space with this great idea from blogger Taylor at Taylor Made. She covered heat-resistant cups with extra fabric & attached them to low-heat LED Christmas lights, then hung them. Get the full how-to here.
