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.
