Tip #1 – Furnish Your Outdoor Space Just Like Your Home

Furnish your outdoor space as if it is a room inside your home. Give it a purpose. Is it for dining, or lounging, or a place to cook an entire meal? Don’t forget to include the pillows and quilts and accessories. We created an outdoor kitchen with a bar. It’s a great area to entertain and occasionally we serve dinner here!

Tip #2 – Make Your Outdoor Rooms Comfortable

Recently we replaced our outdoor patio furniture. We loved our twenty-year-old teak furniture but it was too small and uncomfortable. This amazing furniture from the Arhaus Hampton’s Collection is so comfortable! We sit out here every single day.


Check out this Arhaus Hampton’s sofa! I am actually hosting a giveaway for this sofa next week on my Instagram! Be sure not to miss it.

  2. Love all your tips and your outdoor space is wonderful.

    My husband redid our deck in Trex and I updated flower pots and bought a new rug. It’s been so humid we haven’t sat outside in a month.


  3. I love your outdoor space. I do have a question…do you take everything inside if it rains? We have an uncovered space outside and my experience here in Georgia is that it’s difficult to keep things looking very nice for long because of the rain and the heat. I would have redecorate often.
