Easy and Practical Backyard Design Ideas
Warmer weather is almost here, Darlings, and it’s the perfect time to start thinking about giving your outdoor space a makeover for the season and to make it look its best. By adding elements of your personal style to your exterior, you can extend your design aesthetic to all areas of your home. Whether you are a fan of modern minimalism or bold patterns, you’ll definitely find something to bring your individual style to your backyard space.
Your backyard should be a place where you can fully relax and enjoy being outside, and you do not need to spend a fortune to make it look divine.
Colorful throw Pillows are probably the easiest way (and cost-effective) way to upgrade your patio/ backyard each season. The lovely pillows will definitely help to make things felt more relaxed and chilling and bring this summer vibes. Just use pillows in chaise lounges and dining chairs, not only for a quick pop of color and pattern but for comfort as well.
If you want to save money on outdoor pillows here is my advice just go for indoor pillows which usually are much cheaper and have a bigger variety of styles, patterns and colors and protect them with a special spray from UV and water, there are plenty of them and I personally would recommend 303 Fabric Guard that definitely will help you to save money.
You might also consider to use their other spray for your garden furniture in order to protect it from burning out on the fresh air under bright summer sun.
There are so many creative ways to incorporate plants into your outdoor decor and one of the was is to elevate them with tall planters, which brings greenery to eye level! If you elevate them, they become a backdrop and ambience, which is so nice. It’s especially great if you want to hide an not attractive wall or anything.
You can use any trees you like from boxwood to cypress, they all will be looking great and stylish in your background or you can use artificial trees as well and they really can be great for patios.
Flowers and arrangements are not just for the indoors, you can use various sizes of vases outside around your outdoor patio areas (on coffee tables, countertops, side tables, etc..) and keep them filed with plant/flower clippings from your yard. It’s especially a fun touch if you’re entertaining.
One last outdoor flower trick is to choose hanging baskets for your outdoor flowers in container pots rather than traditional flowers. The reason for this is flowers in hanging baskets are fuller and already growing down the side and they look so pretty and full in pots!
Hanging string lights is one of the easy and very attractive way to decorate your outdoor space, it won’t cost you much but will definitely bring these cosy look to the space and add some party atmosphere. It doesn’t take long to drape or hang one or two strings of lights to add ambience to your outdoor areas.
Even hanging one string in a tree or large plant can make a pretty difference at night.
No need to go overboard with the lighting. Just a simple strand draped over the table will look effortless. Plus, it will let your beautiful tablescape take center stage.
There are so many ways to create and layer a beautiful outdoor space. The best place to start is by looking in your junk closet to see what accessories you already have and incorporate those pieces. Now is the best time to start making new changes and decorations in your backyard as the earlier you start the longer you and your family and friends will enjoy this summer mood in your outdoor space.
Enjoy your summer!
