Try one of these looks for your patio this spring and summer!
1. Add a bold color
Choose one bright color, such as aqua, tangerine or bright yellow, and strategically add bright splashes of it to the patio. Paint a door, chairs or side table in the accent color, then add a bouquet of flowers to match.
2. Embellish with seaside accessories
Hang nautical flags, rope, stars or lanterns to tables or walls. Add red or navy striped cushions or rugs to play up the nautical theme.
3. Bring in comfortable seating
Make the patio the coziest spot in the house by adding easy, do-it-yourself seating options. Add a hanging plank chair, pallet seat or make over a bench.
4. Add whimsy
Combine a few unexpected accents to make a big statement. Make a unique birdfeeder or birdbath to create a playful space.
5. Transform it into a garden oasis
Add a plethora of potted plants, build a tiered planter, or create an interesting water fountain to bring in lush greenery. Tip: Plant aromatic flower varieties like lilies, lilacs or verbena to create a beautiful butterfly garden.
6. Create a stargazer’s paradise
Add celestial-inspired touches like a framed star chart, starry painted pillows and star-shaped paper lighting.
7. Make some noise
Hide an all-weather speaker behind a table or chair, and play some tunes. Add a homemade wind chime for a more natural ambiance.
