Outdoor Room

Many people often neglect the outside of their home, but it's the perfect place to get a little creative and add an extra "room" to your home!  It's officially summer so a get together outside is the perfect excuse to give your backyard some TLC.  below are some outdoor essentials!

1. Lighting: try hanging some tea lights in mason jars or lanterns. Maybe even add some string lighting!

2. Use fabric! Your outdoor space should be an extension of your home.  Make it feel cozy by adding some fabric (seating, throws).  These are easily switched out as well making updating the room super simple!
