“EMBRACE YOUR SPACE”
is a mantra that serves upstylers very well. Case in point is a woodland yard setting with hardscape stone, shade pines and neatly stacked piles of firewood. How to soften it? Bring in traditional cabin furnishings such as reed and bamboo and accessorize with vintage floral blankets and pillows. Instead of stark and dark spaces you’ll revel in a romantic place to be outside under the pines.
An old wood ice cream bucket is the perfect vessel for a bouquet of delphinium and corn tassels. Decorate porches, patios and outdoor gathering spots with flowers and cut foliage to create a pretty focal point. opposite: Vintage fabric against a woven seat adds softness. The patio fire pit has places to sit and enjoy the fire.
