Outdoor Pillows for Gracious Outdoor Living

Regardless of what the weather’s like where you live, most of us enjoy spending time outdoors. There’s just something about a cool breeze and a hot cup of coffee to help you relax, unwind and prepare for tomorrow. Beautiful outdoor pillows can make your time outdoors fun, relaxing and fully enjoyable. Most nowadays have UV protection so you can leave them in the sun for long periods. They’re also weather resistant and ready whether it’s rain or shine. The right outdoor pillows and furnishings should welcome your guests.

Decorating with Outdoor Pillows

Just as with your indoor living space, your outdoor space should showcase your style and tastes. This is easy to accomplish with a clever design and the right elements. Place a comfortable bench underneath your favorite tree. Add a bird fountain nearby with trickling water. But don’t stop there! You can create the perfect outdoor getaway and get the whole family involved in making your design come true.  There are endless features that can improve or even transform the space.

 

A Gazebo Versus a Pergola

Generally speaking, a gazebo has a roof, a floor and columns that leave the space between completely open. Most also have built-in seating. This is a project that only experienced homeowners should tackle. You’ll need power tools and some strong hands to do the work. Most home improvement stores sell these as kits that are not that difficult to put together. It might take a few weekends to complete though. A pergola is usually just an open roof with two or four columns depending on whether it’s freestanding or attached to the house. This type of project could be completed in a weekend. It offers partial shade, but you can grow vines of all types across the roof to provide full shade.

Home improvement stores offer another product that works well for many homeowners and it’s very simple to put together. These are ready-made canopies usually crafted of a durable plastic and/or aluminum. They are sold in kits with instructions about how to assemble and most come with mosquito netting. They can be placed anywhere in the yard and are able to withstand wind and weather. They’re very affordable as well. The trick to making one of these gazebo kits look great is with your furnishings, plants and accessories.

 

Adding Design Elements

Start with a comfortable outdoor seating area, then add some outdoor throw pillows to make it homey. Next add some small tables to hold drinks and other items.  You can place plants in the ground or simply use potted plants around the space. Make your outdoor space inviting, comfy and charming and guests will never want to leave.
