As we run towards spring with arms wide open, we remember the warmth of the sun on our faces. We remember the BBQs and the parties with family and friends.
And we remember our backyard!
We live in a time where experience is highly prized and our homes are places of comfort, safety, and solitude.
So, it makes sense that we desire to craft our homes to best represent ourselves and to create a feeling of coziness.
Our Danish friends refer to this desired feeling of coziness and comfortable contentment as hygge. How can we embrace a little more hygge into our homes?
Tearing Down Walls
According to an AIA Study, Outdoor Living Space has spiked as the most coveted space “within” a home. More and more people are enhancing their outdoor living spaces as functional family and entertaining areas.
Crafting the Perfect Outdoor Living Space
So you’re looking to transform your backyard into the perfect “staycation” spot? Want to create a space for your family and friends to spend quality time all year long?
Take our word on these patio-enhancing tips and tricks:
- Start with comfortable furniture that lasts. If you’re investing in a space for your family and friends to relax, you’ll want years of use and consistent comfort.
- Choose fabrics that complement your style and add a sense of warmth to your furniture. Neutral tones with a pop of color are always great options.
- Incorporate some deep seating in your layout. The key to bringing life outdoors is to design your space as you would an indoor living space. Sofas, love seats, and sectionals allow for cozy spaces to cuddle up and read a book or to fit the entire family for a game night!
- And finally, don’t forget to accessorize! Added touches of your personal style will make your outdoor living space a spot that you’ll never want to leave.
A Home’s True Foundation
At the end of the day, your outdoor living space is a place for you and your family and friends to relax and spend quality time.
Curating a beautiful space is an exciting and fun process but is only a means to an end.
Enjoy your time together, laugh together, share moments and memories, because as the age-old saying goes: home is where your heart is.
