The winter holidays may be fast approaching, but we can give thanks for the harvest season with these fall decor ideas.
Between the frightening fun of Halloween and the cozy, candied Christmas seasons, it’s easy to lose the best season of the year: Autumn. Thanksgiving is the culmination of the fall season where we celebrate all those small strokes of luck and big blessings that we’ve been fortunate to receive. All too often this decor gets lost between October holidays and the New Year’s Eve parties. Let’s bring back a bit of fall to the fireplace area and tabletops.
There are many elements to interior design. Color, light, lines, shapes (forms) and texture are all applied principles of design that are immediately noticeable in a room. These principles also apply when building and decorating exterior rooms. One design element that is often overlooked on the patio is texture.
After your patio has been meticulously designed by the landscape architect and carefully installed by the contractor, the last step before you can enjoy the space is to choose the outdoor furniture and decor. Your patio project has been an important and valuable – not to mention expensive! – investment in your home, and you’ve hired the best to complete it. Why not ask for help with this one last step?
When it comes to patio design you’re going to see a lot inspiration out there. You’ll see everything from Beachy Paradise to Rambling Rustic. But what if that’s not your style? What if you want a patio with graphic prints in bold and bright colors?
A bright young leaf in Spring reminds us of nature’s promise: that everything old will be new again. Pantone’s Color of 2017 gives a whole new meaning to “green development.”
The color is called Greenery, and it reflects that hopeful feeling one gets from making a fresh start. Pretty up your patio with its energetic-yet-cool spirit for a perfectly positive Spring season.
Many stone traditions are available to emulate in your patio design. The architecture of the Italian Renaissance or an American Colonial theme inspire many homeowners. But what about a little taste of the American Southwest?
Some claim that the pergola was brought to us by the Italians during the Renaissance. This may be true considering the fact that Italy is famous for its green tunnels formed by the heads of plants bound together to form a spectacular arch.
A pergola is one of the most outstanding ways to decorate your garden, to create an exquisite outdoor living space, to show your guests you have an imagination beyond limits. A cozy place, aimed to offer peaceful shady moments, the pergola kit is a stunning feature in any garden.
Great, so you finally decided that you are going to have the patio of your dreams! Today’s outdoor living rooms are so much more than years ago; everything from pavers to pillows to plants are chosen to make your patio a true extension of your home.
While man-caves are still popping up all over the country, a newer and slightly clandestine movement is beginning to sweep the nation; She-Sheds. Also known as Lady Lounges, ordinary backyard sheds that once held rakes, trimmers and a mower are being transformed into peaceful and private paradises by the lady of the house.
