Spring has arrived and if you’re lucky enough just to be coming out of the freezing temps then you know that means one thing – it’s patio season! But just how well are you utilizing your space and enjoying the perks of your outdoor space? A majority of homeowners are guilty of one thing – playing favorites to their interiors, but with a little time, money and attention to that undervalued haven you can be sure will ensure it’s just as comfortable and inviting as the inside… maybe even more! Take the advice of Troika’s Design Expert and focus on 3 things to bring your outdoor living to the next level.
It’s all in the seating
Whether you have a balcony or a backyard, the key to creating a comfortable and luxurious outdoor space comes down to the seating. Do away with that tired folding chair and start bringing a little inspiration from the indoors out. A wicker loveseat and set of accent chairs are the perfect choice, offering comfort for a natural material capable of withstanding every season without breaking the bank. With a cozy appeal, guest are the shared seating invites guests to mingle and offer a little relief to those loving party hosts.
Dress it up
Furniture is essential to the function of any space, but it cam’t set the mood quite like accessories can. Creating an atmosphere, especially when the sun goes down takes effort. Consider adding in string lights, sconces, or even pendant lighting for a charming accent.
Bring on the Green
The addition of plants to a space offers a sense of calm and serenity. Take advantage of the warmer months by bringing plants that are gorgeous, but also provide a little kitchen inspiration. Start with an agave plant, a small garden with your favorite cooking herbs, and if you’re feeling ambitious, bring in a small scale tree that grows your favorite fruit.
