Small wicker stools also work as side tables for serving drinks and snacks. Don’t be afraid to bring some of your indoor decor outside (if weather permits), like this fab small faux fur pillow or this indigenous concrete statue.
Use plants of all sizes as decor. Pick up inexpensive baskets at the thrift store and simply drop some small plants and cacti in the baskets. You can then put the baskets all around your space to bring some lushness and life to your deck.
Floor poufs are a low-price way to add seating without investing in larger pieces of furniture, such as a sofa or chaise, say Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with Wake + Loom Design. While you can find outdoor poufs for less than $50, you also can make your own fabric pouf ottoman in a pattern and palette that you prefer. Also, a garden stool is a versatile item that can serve as extra seating or a side table.
Fun details bring some personality and vibrancy to the outdoor space. A colorful pom pom garland is simply strung across a vintage easel and paired with a large succulent plant. On chilly nights you can hang cozy blankets on the rungs of the easel to switch up the look even more.
Instead of buying new furniture, rehab an old or damaged table with no elbow grease. Just cover it with a zesty tablecloth, like the Mexican tapestry that Wake + Loom Design selected for this eclectic, lush patio.
Include a few standout pieces in your outdoor decor. This faux cattle head acts as a piece of outdoor art when simply leaned against the wall next to some colorful pillows and succulents. A large vintage wooden bowl serves as a faux planter for a cactus.
Off the back of the house is a relaxing, welcoming patio area. A group of comfortable wicker chairs is the perfect spot to enjoy the contemporary backyard and pool. An umbrella adds shade over the outdoor dining area.
While it is typically frowned upon to have your Christmas lights up after the holidays, the strands of white bulbs can provide you with another amazing source of light for your outdoor room. This Bohemian-style patio incorporates the fun lights, giving the area a relaxed ambiance.
Colorful Plexiglass panels add flair to this urban rooftop outdoor room. A large dining table shaded by an umbrella provides space for eating and entertaining. Patio chairs in a nearby area provide space for relaxing.
