You can have a fun summer staycation every day when you design your patio or balcony with your personal style and relaxation in mind. Even just a few intentional, tasteful touches can turn your space into your new favorite destination for work, play, and dozing off in the sun.
Like any other room in your house, your outdoor space needs to be properly “fitted” for furniture. Measure your space and sketch out where you want to place pieces, such as a bistro, coffee table, benches, or that perfect lounger for your morning joe.

This is the time of year to embrace all the life the great outdoors has to offer, whether that means flowers, foliage, fresh veggies, butterflies, or birds. Create the ecosystem that makes you happy! Even with a small space, you can create a perfect outdoor getaway. Here are a few ideas:
Don’t rush back inside once the sun goes down. Keep the vibe alive with outdoor lighting that will not only extend the hours you can talk, read, or play games in the fresh air, but add charm and style to your look. String the railings with trendy Edison bulbs, create a canopy effect with LED fairy lights, or accent with solar-powered glowing windchimes, lanterns, or hanging bugs. With the power of the sun and a little whimsy, your imagination has no limit!
