Winter is a good time to evaluate your garden's design. Start by looking at your garden from indoors and other vantage points. Examine bed lines and paths. Are they logically placed, or do you need to add a new formal path? Determine if there is balance in the plantings or if one area seems too heavy or too light.

A chaise is a great piece of furniture to add a dash of design in an affordable way. "Instead of just having a plain daybed or chaise you can layer it," says Atlanta designer Michael Habachy. Position a tray on top of a throw, or even use a textured or patterned scarf or pashmina that you own.

A practical way to keep guests feeling warm while also adding color, pattern and texture to your front porch is to keep comfy blankets on display in baskets or crates. To keep the look a little more clean, consider rolling the blankets before placing them into the baskets.
