5 Ways to Elevate Your Outdoor Space This Summer

share

We’re not sure about you, but over here at Parker Gwen we’re starting to get the summer itch. As the seasons change, the leaves turn green and the flowers bloom we’re getting the urge to bring the comforts of indoors outside.  

So, whether you’re looking for some simple ways to spruce up your existing outdoor space, starting a patio from scratch, or are looking for that perfect finishing touch, we’re excited to share a few of our favorite ways to make your outdoor space feel just like an extension of your home.  

Let’s get started. After all, summer will be here before we know it! 


GET COMFORTABLE.

Perhaps nothing is more important when designing your outdoor space than choosing furniture styles that are built with comfort, form and function all in mind.  


If you’re looking to lounge, our recommendation is to choose pieces with cushion, to truly make your outdoor space feel like an extension of your living space. A few of our current favorites are the Cavan Sectional, the Dimitri Chaise, the Sherwood sofa, and the Simmons sofa.  


If you’re looking to entertain for Barbeques, opt for comfortable outdoor dining sets like the Loom outdoor dining chair, the Rosen dining chair or the Vega counter stool

PLAY WITH TEXTILES.


While pillows, rugs, and throw blankets are a no brainer for decorating your home on the inside, they’re so often overlooked as soon as you step outside.  


Not only does bringing pillows and throw blankets outside add another layer of comfort to your space, but it helps to carry your décor style outdoors too. Keep in mind the colors of your outdoor furniture, landscaping and home and be sure to choose styles that compliment them all. 


Rugs also play a huge role in making your outdoor space more inviting. We’re suckers for neutral hued outdoor rugs that play to the elements. Browse our entire selection here.


DON'T FORGET THE ENTERTAINMENT.

If you’re creating the ultimate outdoor lounge space, odds are you’re going to want to entertain in it, too!  


Keeping that in mind, there are few entertaining must-haves that we can’t recommend enough. On our list? Broil King grills, outdoor speakers, an outdoor TV and beyond.

GLOW UP.

Your outdoor space deserves to glow, don’t you think? String lights, lanterns and candles are an obvious choice for a little light come night time. 

Looking to take it a step further? Lately we’ve been loving the look of outdoor fire pits. From s’mores to entertaining to lounging and everything in between it’s the perfect addition to spruce up your space.  

Psstt… storing the wood you’ll need can look pretty fancy too with our Nero Wood Storage.


DON'T FORGET ABOUT THE DETAILS.

Our last recommendation? Tie it all together in the details.  


Clip some fresh blooms or plants from the yard to add to outdoor vases, add some planters to compliment your furniture selections and landscaping, bring some candles, tray and outdoor décor pieces out to make it feel just like home.
