Creating the Perfect Outdoor Living Space

September 20, 2016 Outdoor Living

Autumn air brings just another reason to get outdoors and live life. This Thursday marks the beginning of a new season … fall is here, and we are so excited to help you get in the spirit with style. Creating a cozy outdoor living space can be both stylish and affordable.  There are just a few fall decor must-haves when crafting an alfresco common area.

Illumination

Whether the illumination shines from a beautifully lit gas fire pit or groups of strategically placed candles … lighting both sets the mood and brings warmth to your outdoor experience.  While traditional string lights are synonymous with the holidays you can also change up the style of string lights and make them a permanent fixture for a European vibe.   Lighting in any fashion will add to the ambiance and can be done on many levels, flip the switch and add some light … you’ll illuminate the mood and the experience.

Cozy up with Color

Harvesting warm colors to match nature is exactly what you should do when designing your outdoor living space.  Take a muted mustard color and make it pop agains a rustic red.  Accent pillows, chargers, candles, throws, and rugs … these are all places where you can play with pigments.  It’s fun to accessorize with color as it’s not permanent and easy to move around. cozy up with color Texas Custom Patios

Create a Focal Point

Pick one area in the outdoor living space on which to focus, make it a place that really draws the eye.  It could be as simple as an over-sized beautiful plant, a piece of art or even furniture (like the hanging sofa below).  Make one part of the space something you’re proud of, something that makes you smile. It not only makes for a great talking piece, but can also make for a great picture backdrop.

The Gathering Place

Within the outdoor living room or outdoor kitchen, have a place where 3 or more people can sit comfortably.  Have a few billowy deep-set seats, a sofa with large pillows or even comfortable barstools to belly up to the bar.  Your guests will enjoy the surroundings and remember the experience.

Happy FALL, Y’all!  Get outside … live life … enjoy!

Our Customers Love Us

Top notch company. This firm stands behind its work. We had a small issue with some cracks in our slab related to settling, and Ryan had someone out the day after my phone call. Upon inspection, we were presented with several options and the work was completed in a week. I cannot say enough good things about Texas Custom Patios and the quality of their work.
