Can you believe it is July already? The weather has been wonderful in Southern California and we are really enjoying our outdoor living rooms. Today I am thrilled to team up with some of my blogging friends to share our outdoor living rooms. In the summertime, we love spending time outdoors and today I am sharing five tips to enjoy your outdoor living space.
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.
Tip #3 – Love Your Outdoor Space
Janine from Happy Happy Nester has such a colorful and wonderful back patio. But her deck used to be red and it wasn’t until they painted it that they loved this space! Be sure to head to her blog her great outdoor living room DIY and see what this deck used to look like!
