Interior Design: Make your outdoor space summer-ready

Interior Design: Make your outdoor space summer-ready

Whether you have a small balcony or a lush green garden, outdoor space is a very important area when it comes to summer. Who doesn’t like to relax in their garden to enjoy the bright blue sky and warmer temperature? Whether it is a barbecue party or a simple family get together, your outdoor space should work as a perfect venue for all. Below are five tips to bring some cool and calm to your own personal great outdoors.


1. Clear the area

It’s important to cleanse your outdoor space, and that means doing both a wash-down of the surfaces and clearing out old furniture and decor you might not necessarily need. A big component of getting your garden summer-ready is surrounding yourself with the things you really, truly love, as this can greatly increase your energy and happiness.

2. Good company

Your seating areas are crucial. Vintage bamboo sofas and rattan furniture are perfect to fulfill your outdoor furniture requirements. Also, buy comfortable and durable cushions for sofa and chairs matching with outdoor ambiance.

3. Texture

Just like indoors, textiles do wonders for any space by adding personality and warmth. If you have a patio or balcony, an outdoor rug underneath your garden furniture will create a feeling of an 'outdoor room'.

4.  Evoke the senses

According to the principles of feng shui, you should decorate your outdoor space with herbs and fragrant flowers. These smells will help keep you serene and grounded while you’re entertaining or lounging alone during the summertime.

5. Lighting. Lighting. Lighting.

Good lighting can transform any space into a sanctuary. Old-fashioned bulbs on a string are perfect for a party and work equally well in both large and small spaces. Some great lanterns scattered around your space is also a simple and creates a cosy candlelit feel.
