Each season presents new ways to decorate and style your home. It’s important to focus not only on the inside of your home, but also your outdoor space! Being outside and getting fresh air is key to our wellbeing and health, so creating an environment in your backyard or on your porch that inspires and invites you is essential. Here are some tips to help you prepare your outdoor space for fall this year.
With the days getting darker and shorter, re-thinking the lighting in your outdoor space is key. Lighting sets the entire vibe of a space. For outside, hanging lights create such a cozy atmosphere, and allow for friends and family to be able to stay outside longer into the evening.
Nothing goes with the crispy fall nights better than chunky knit throws. You can keep a container or basket outside so they stay clear of bad weather and they are easily accessible. Also, add some lanterns! Chic lanterns can add an elevated look to your outdoor space, and once summer comes back around, you can always pull them inside for decor by your mantle.
Decorative pillows are an easy and affordable way to change the style of your outdoor space seasonally. Fall calls for pops of color, simple shapes, and warmer textures. Changing out the pillows will immediately move your space from season to season.
I think we can all agree the best conversations, laughter, and s’mores happen around the backyard firepit. Make your fire pit, whether big or small, the focal point of your outdoor space. For the colder months, the main gathering spot will be around the fire, so make it as cozy and comfortable as possible!
Just because it’s colder outside doesn’t mean you can’t have plants in your backyard! Choose greenery that can withstand the cold to maintain that pop of color and life. Try some Cedar Bush or Blue Spruce!
Our team hopes you are inspired to creatively prepare your outdoor space for fall. We hope you’ll be able to use some of these tips to make your space all you want it to be this year!
