3 Tips When Styling Your Outdoor Space
July 03, 2015 in Uncategorized | no comments

With summer and this weekend’s 4th of July holiday, people are gearing up to have fun outdoors! Having an inviting space to entertain friends or to cozy up in is key.

If you want your outdoor space to fit your lifestyle, Heather shared three important tips on how to style your space this week on KXAN’s Studio 512 with host Amanda Tatom.

1. Fit the space to your lifestyle and make the most of your space

What purpose do you want your outdoor space to serve? Do you love to entertain and have guests over? Is your style more chic and stylish? If you have a bigger outdoor space, sectionals with an outdoor coffee table is a great way to fill up space. Even pairing a table with a bench would work. Built in fireplaces are another great way to make the space inviting for friends and family.

Do you have a smaller space for just you? Living downtown in a city can limit your outdoor space so having a small accent table with a pair of folded wooden chairs can add the perfect touch.

2. Here’s the fun part, accessorizing!

This is the part where you can play around outdoors. Heather talks about four essential items that will spruce up your patio and be the talk of the summer.

Outdoor Pillows and Accessories

  • Rugs made out of an outdoor fabric with a fun pattern can add style to any patio or deck.
  • Outdoor lighting that can be as simple as having twinkle lights or unique pendants.
  • Be creative when choosing pillows. Bold patterns and bright colors can make a statement on any sofa. Featured on the show are pillows from a local company based in Austin called Square Feathers. All of their products are handmade and ready to ship anywhere.
  • Candle holders and succulents or any type of greenery makes for the perfect table accessory.  

3. Pots for Planting

When considering what kind of exterior pots you want, think about how big or small the space is. It’s also a great opportunity to spend time with family and friends when planting!

  • If you have a small area use taller pots, and if you have a larger area go bigger and wider to fill up space.

Hopefully these tips will help you when styling you outdoor space! We will post the segment link on Facebook soon. Stop by our retail store for all your home accessories. Have a safe and fun 4th of July everyone!
