August is a month best spent poolside. With the intense heat waves we have been having across the east coast, having a pool has been a great reprieve. In the last of the summer weeks we are having now, we are enjoying and admiring outdoor summer decor.
It’s hard to believe, given how hot these past few weeks have been, that Fall is right around the corner. August is our transition month. As this month progresses, we will gradually see the effects of Fall and the changes that are starting to begin. With that being said, be sure to take full advantage of these last summer weeks. The hot days will start bringing in cooler evenings, which in turn results in morning dew on your lawn. This is always the first sign of changes to come. Enjoy your backyard with family and friends, and soak in the last month of summertime sunshine.
Creating Outdoor Summer Decor & Outdoor Living Spaces
Typically the end of the summer season brings in new clients. Many homeowners are reflecting on this summer and realizing changes they would like to make to their property for next year. Fall into winter is a great time of year to tackle home projects. Such as creating outdoor decor for summer. It is best to think and plan ahead. The plans made during this year will ensure that you can enjoy them come next summer season.
Our professional advice that we give to homeowners who are looking to revamp or build an outdoor space: is to look at the space in the same capacity as you would inside your home. Ask yourself, what is the purpose of the new space you are creating? The space should be an extension of your indoor living, used as an expansion of your home.
Consider whether you are looking to create a cozy warm space for gathering, hosting friends and family, or a space that is only used for visual and aesthetic pleasure, a space to create some privacy and intimacy from neighbors. Also, consider if you want this space to be utilized year-round, with a fireplace for colder months, a pergola or overhead covering, outdoor kitchen or bar for a new dining area, a fan installed for warmer days, or no covering at all to enjoy the sunshine. Every client’s needs and personal style preferences are different, but with the right team of architects and designers, anything can be customized to meet individual’s needs and visions.
Adding Color with Planter to Enhance Outdoor Summer Decor
Container gardens are a fun and easy way to add outdoor summer decor to your property. Planters, urns, hanging basket, all come in a wide variety of colors, sizes, and to suit any budget. Choosing colorful, vibrant plant materials in the summer enhance the property. This way, the containers can be replanted and changed seasonally.
