MAKE IT COMFORTABLE. Add outdoor pillows and cushions on weatherproof furniture that you can sit and relax on.
UPDATE THE FLOORING. Get a colorful outdoor rug. World Market has some amazing options.
ADD FLOWERS. The easiest way to add color and life to your outdoor space.
BRING IN A COFFEE TABLE. The bigger the better. The table will take the place of a dining table and provide a place for you to put your feet up. The table will also make it feel more like an outdoor living room.
ADD STYLISH ACCENTS. Some lanterns filled with candles and a striped pillow. Accent your outdoor space as if it was your living room. The more style the better.
OUTDOOR LIGHTING. I think a cool outdoor pendant is so chic looking. So are the pretty string lanterns and lights.
CANDLES. CANDLES. CANDLES. They add a great atmosphere and simple glow at night when it gets dark.
