Sometimes decorating can be so simple. The decorating principles are the same outside as they are inside the home.

These patios above are very pretty and they all have a little something “extra” that is making them look so special. Do you know what that is?

It is the pops of color!  The bright and clean pinks, oranges, yellows, greens and blues are what makes the space come alive!

This setting below would be pretty boring without the pops of pink:

Just a couple pretty pillows and a set of old painted chairs can instantly add beauty and character.  So simple and so pretty!!

Sometimes you can just add bunches of flowers to make a space look ‘wow’:

Do you see the cute little dog peaking out?  In the Fall they probably switch out their pillows to more muted shades of sage greens, autumn golds and browns.

Now look how easy it would be to copy this look below:

We can do this!  Buy a few bright, bold colored pillows and lay them out on our chairs.  Maybe hang a coordinating towel nearby on the railing.  When I have outdoor parties, I like to hang out a Mexican blanket or two for color.  Bring in a couple pretty pots of flowers and  ta-da!  You too will have a beautiful put together outdoor space!
