Family Time Al Fresco: Summer must haves for creating an outdoor family living area.

Outdoor living is in! Create a comfortable and chic outdoor living area that your family and friends will gather in all summer long.  Cookouts, board games, catching fire flies, or just hanging out together will take place in your new summer living room!

  • Nautical & Chevron anything and everything… This color theme and pattern design is the hottest trend in outdoor living. Use it as a main focal point like in an outdoor rug or a simple as an accent pillow!

 

  • Light up your space! String lights are all the rage for making a space feel like you’re in another world! A few string lights create a warm and romantic feel to an ordinary outdoor space.  All kiddos LOVE twinkle lights.

 

  • Outdoor accents- use lanterns, LED candles, and unique design pieces that incorporate your personality!

 

  • Help your family and other company stay comfortable outdoors all day — and into the night in your outdoor living area.  Fill a basket with amenities like sunblock, bug spray, hand wipes, and, if it might turn chilly, light blankets. Another great basket to have on hand is activities for your kiddos.  Lighting bug jars, a deck of cards, flash lights for flash light tag, and even sparklers.
