Happy Friday to you! Wow we had quite the weather this week. Three nights we had freeze warnings, forcing me to cover some of my plants, and the daytime temps weren’t a whole lot warmer. I’m hoping this is the end of it though because I’m ready to be outside planting and working in the garden.
Speaking of spring, for most of us it’s here with summer soon to follow, and that means that we’re busy getting our outdoor spaces ready to enjoy. Not everyone is blessed with a large outdoor area to fill with a big family dining table or fire pit though, so whether you have a small backyard deck (like I do) or a tiny balcony in a city apartment, there’s so much you can do to make your space a beautiful outdoor oasis.
Adding a rug helps to define your space and makes it feel more put together. Using fun items like the green lantern and the round tray coffee table create a homey feeling.
When you have a small space you want to utilize every square inch and sometimes that means going vertical.
Keep it simple but comfy and cozy when you decorate your small outdoor area. Use furnishings that draw you outside to sit and relax.
Bring in some fun color to make your small space more interesting.
Decorate your small space with furnishings you would usually see inside, like this pretty, ornate mirror.
Just like you would use a large mirror to make an indoor small room look larger, it will make your outdoor space seem larger too.
I hope you found some great ideas from these beautiful small outdoor spaces that you can use in whatever size space you have.
Do you have a small outdoor space? Any tips on how to decorate it?
