Outdoor Patio Refresh | How to Transition Your Outdoor Space

With the warm weather quickly approaching, there’s no better time than now to begin transitioning your outdoor living space! Whether you’re looking to create an area for entertainment or for some much needed relaxation, the key to creating a functional outdoor patio is all in the details. Here are a few of the elements to focus on when transitioning your space for spring and summer. 
One of the first elements to consider when styling your outdoor living area is the patio furniture that will be used. Consider how you want your space to function, and then select furniture based around that.

Check out how Kasey styled her covered patio using two accent chairs. By adding functional furniture pieces, combined with stylish decor like our Kate Turkish Throw Blanket, Kasey was able to create an inviting space ideal for both entertaining and relaxing.

Patio accessories are an essential element when it comes to creating a livable outdoor space. Consider adding functional decor pieces, such as decorative trays. Trays can be layered with other decor such as soy wax candles, safety matches, drink glasses, and so much more! Styling these items together creates a cohesive, multi-layered look that will bring your patio to the next level.

Selecting the right textiles can truly enhance your outdoor space. Adding textiles like rugs, accent pillows, and throw blankets brings a new level of comfort and style. Our Turkish Throw Blankets have a perfectly simplistic design that goes with any style of decor. These blankets are medium weight and are made of 100% Turkish cotton, which makes them ideal for both indoor and outdoor use.

As a way to upgrade your patio’s ambiance, select summer scents that will complement the area. Candles and reed diffusers not only smell amazing, but they also double as decor. Our Summer collection of candles and diffuser scents will create a relaxing oasis that transforms your space.
