Great Outdoor Décor

The best season to enjoy the great outdoors is almost here, which is why we’ve come up with a list of outdoor décor ideas that’ll make your porch, patio or yard an absolute treat! From backyard breakfast bars and hammocks to look at the stars, to beautiful hanging lights for those warm summer nights, scroll down and you’ll find everything you need to make every day outside an absolute gift.

Grounded Style

To make the great outdoors just as stylish as your great indoors, stick to the same design style, colors, and patterns! This’ll keep both spaces feeling connected, and creates a nice flow between the outside and the in. Because the outdoors lacks walls, start with the first thing you see when you step outside: the ground. If you’re walking out onto a paved or tiled patio, try incorporating some statement tiles that share attributes with your indoor ones. If you’re stepping outside onto a deck, paint those boards a similar color to the indoor floors. Or, if you’d rather get outside and enjoy the weather quicker, simply lay down a similarly styled outdoor rug and call it a day!

Pro-Tip: The pros know that if you lay a round outdoor rug under a round table, it creates the illusion of more space. Use this trick yourself to make any size outdoor area feel twice as big!

Laid-Back Living

Now that your exterior is just as stylish as your interior, it’s time to set it up with some comfort! The ideal set-ups include a sectional sofa and coffee table, because they offer much more comfort per square foot, but some outdoor areas don’t allow for that hefty of an item. If you’re working with a smaller space, substitute another chair with an outdoor chaise or ottoman. Whatever your set-up, the most comfortable and forgiving materials are going to be some type of woven wicker topped with thick weatherproof cushions. Then if you can keep yourself cool during the day with a stylish umbrella or sun sail, and warm during the night with a gas fire pit table, you’ll have it made in the shade!

Pro-Tip: If you want pro-levels of comfort and shade, put up a pergola! Pergolas are the perfect structure to hang lights, plants, even hammocks from, but they’re open and airy enough to still give you a clear view of those starry summertime nights.

Rise & Shine

Sure, you’ve got a stylish and comfy place to chill outside, but do you have a cozy place to eat? You don’t need to bring the entire kitchen outdoors; if you start with a small round bistro table and some rustic stools, you’ll have yourself an intimate little eating nook in no time! Or, for those even smaller spaces, fashion a portable breakfast bar cart and wheel it to wherever your favorite outdoor seat is. It need only be large enough to hold the essentials: coffee, toast, and a few tasty breakfast treats!

Pro-Tip: Turn that breakfast nook into your designated brunch spot by building your own breakfast bar! Modern built-in outdoor cabinetry paired with an under-counter fridge makes for a sleek place to serve up some delicious morning drinks.

Hanging Out

Now that your days outdoors are covered, get ready to enjoy those warm summer nights with some hanging lights! A few bits of soft luminescence will give your backyard that midsummer night’s dream kind of vibe, enabling you to hang outside long after the sun goes down. It could be as simple as a string of hanging fairy lights, or an elegant outdoor chandelier, whatever you decide to do, just make sure the lights aren’t so bright you can’t see the stars too. Then, for that final ethereal step, hang up a quilted hammock and have some midsummer dreams of your own—day or night!

Pro-Tip: Hang up something that’ll help keep your cool day and night: an outdoor ceiling fan! Than, throw up a few wind chimes, and let the soothing sounds of the great outdoors serenade you to sleep!
