6 Ideas For Your Outdoor Living Space

August 21, 2019

The weather’s warm, the drinks are cold, and your outdoor space has never felt more relaxing… As you enter the last stretch of summer, make sure to enjoy every ray of sunshine in style! From colorful accent pieces to natural decor, we have plenty of ways for you to make your outdoor space blossom. On your patio and in your backyard, the right accessories can take your space to a new level of New Tradition Homes beauty. Outdoor Design Ideas  

1) Throw Some Shade:

In your spacious New Tradition Homes backyard, add a little flair (and much-appreciated shade) with a wide, sleek umbrella. If you throw a lot of dinner parties at night, choose an umbrella with LED lighting to create a warm, stylish glow during any soiree.  

2) Let it Grow:

Container gardens are on the rise… and they’re pretty easy on the eyes. Give pops of life to your space with your favorite bright fruit or flowers grown in trendy planters like metal and cedar. Play around with different designs, sizes, and flower arrangements, and show off your exterior decorating skills.  

3) Get Campy:

Small, compact, and easy to use, fire pits add a nostalgic spark to your outdoor space. Set up a food station from a two- or three-tiered shelf, where you can rest supplies for everyone to enjoy: think chocolate, marshmallows, graham crackers, and sticks. Your family and friends will be happy campers again.  

4) Secret Garden Tip:

Summertime is all about leisure and comfort, so why not rest your drinks on something stylish? A compact garden accent table adds chicness to your covered patio without overwhelming the scenery and space. Whatever color or design floats your boat, your drinks are sure to look (and stay) cool.  

5) Water You Waiting For:

You don’t need to break your wallet to incorporate luxury into your beautiful space. Coming in all shapes and designs, from multi-tier to basalt, you’re sure to find a gorgeous (and back-in-style) water fountain that suits your look and adds the relaxing sound of rippling water to your space.  

6) Love Letter to Summer:

As guests come and go for gatherings and dinners outside, encourage them to write a little message in a DIY message center. Especially fun for your children and their friends, a blackboard and colorful chalk is all you need to give your space a sweet, personal touch.     From all of us at New Tradition Homes, happy decorating and have a beautiful rest of your summer!

New Tradition Homes was amazing to work with. I love the ability we had to change things around to make it just the way we wanted. They were always nice and easy to work with. Melissa Warren was our Agent and the advice she gave throughout our journey helped us tremendously. We love our new home and it couldn’t have gone easier!!
