Decorating Outdoors

Great Advices from Inglenook Decor

 Try these outdoor oasis ideas & take a mini vacation just a few steps away from your living room.
1. The Bistro: Just two chairsand a table, a great book & maybe a nice glass of aged Spanish wine. Accessorize it with a few candles& of course the lush garden you’ve been working hard on since spring.

2. Hang patio drapes:Your porch will feel like a summer getaway with outdoor panel curtains.  Summer’s hot but it shouldn’t be that hot!
3. Outdoor dining:  When the weather is beautiful, you can dine out anytime.  Weather-resistant furniture such as teak if you would like to go modern or cast iron if you would like to go romantic is so refreshing.  Have a pergola or trellis?  Hang chandeliers, lanterns, empty picture frames with ribbons above the dining area.  Lovely!

4. Copa Cabana:  Nothing evokes a vacation more than a cabana.  This wooden one instantly takes me to a tropical place.  Scatter colorful pillows, the more the better!
