Spring 2012: Time to Furnish Sunrooms and Patios!
May 3, 2012 § Leave a comment
With winter finally retreating, it’s time to head outside. If you don’t have great outdoor furniture, you’re wasting that outdoor space. There are many options for outdoor design—it’s generally best to start with pieces of furniture and work from there. Consider these ideas for your backyard or patio:
Springtime brings warm weather, but nighttime can still be chilly. The fire pit set is perfect for outdoor RI and MA furniture because it caters to cool evenings. The set includes cushy chairs and a central fire pit with a table ledge. Add a pile of quilts and a bar cart to hold s’mores fixings and use some terra cotta planters to tie into a burnt orange or rose fabric. You’ll have a cozy setup that your neighbors will envy!
If you prefer beach-inspired Cape Cod furniture, the four-piece patio set is as breezy and light as they come. Set the bench in a shady corner of your yard and fill the cocktail table with bright flowers or a carefree collection of seashells. String lights above this setup for a great party space in the evenings.
Have a pool? The five-piece patio set looks rustic and neutral, and the table has an insert for an umbrella. Drape bright pool towels over each chair to entice guests to take a dip. You can also stock up on plastic glassware in coordinating colors.
If you want to furnish a sunroom, the five-piece wrought-iron patio set is perfect. The green patina blends well when surrounded by lush plants. Pair it with a rug made from natural fibers and consider adding some patterned curtains or pillows to the room. Sunrooms are the perfect place for an afternoon tea or cocktails, so decorate with gentle, relaxing colors and set out thrifted teacups and teapots for accents.
Your outdoor space can be anything you want it to be. Trends this year are bold and bright colors and patterns, but that doesn’t mean your entire space has to be overwhelming. Start with quality basic furniture and build your look with accents. That way, you can incorporate trends with practical accessories that will help make the space stylish and usable.
