When the sunrays hit your skin, it creates a positive impact deep inside that has been shown to improve overall well being. After all, isn’t that why most of us love Florida in the first place? There’s something about the warmth that makes us feel that nothing else can. The warm air, the flowers, and the breeze all come together to ease away stress – especially next to the ocean or pool. This is why we’re such proponents of extending our living spaces outside. And even though it can be very hot this time of year, having a lovable, and functional outdoor space is a great option no matter the season.
Here are some tips to help make your outdoor spaces shine:
Make your outdoor space as welcoming as your indoor space by matching the color palette and style of your interior and exterior spaces so they effortlessly blend into each another. Versatile furniture, such as the Diva Sofa which is an airy and elegant piece from COUTURE Jardin, works well both inside or out. The wicker sofa and chairs are made of weather resistant furniture and the cushions, made of Sunbrella fabrics, are comfortable and stylish.
Provide Ample Shade
If your patio or yard furniture doesn’t have natural shading from palms, sitting or relaxing outdoors on hottest parts of the day isn’t much fun. Make arrangements for some weather resistant shade by using umbrellas, awnings or more permanent gazebos.
Splash of Color
Don’t limit your patio furniture and accents to natural tones of wood or black and white. Add a “have fun in the Florida sun” by adding color to your cushions and accent pieces. Or better yet, embrace a more adventurous and whimsical look by adding unique works of art such as the hand made blown glass Massai Woman Glass Art Garden Statue from Borowski.
Light it Up, When the Sun Goes Down
Lighting is an important element of your indoor life and it is equally important outside. The right type of outdoor lighting will make your outdoor space as inviting as your living room. The Tawny Glass Table Lamp from Borowski is a colorful and creative piece to let your imagination run wild in the open air while providing a subtle glow.
Bridge your home’s interior and exterior spaces by creating a comfortable space that extends your indoor style to the outdoors. Sklar Furnishings offers a large collection of weather resistant outdoor furniture and accents in a vast range of materials and colors. Stay comfortable in the heat, and enjoy the outdoors this summer.
