Outdoor Oasis: How to Style your Patio Space

by |

With summer in full swing, it can only mean one thing: it’s officially patio season! Summer nights and barbecues are taking over our agendas and we’re fully embracing the season by moving all of our entertaining from inside our homes to the great outdoors. Whether your patio is your favorite oasis or you’re looking to create your dream screened-in porch, there are plenty of weather-proof pieces to implement into your space that will last all season long.

The goal in any outdoor space is to make it feel like a natural extension of your home. This starts first and foremost with what goes underfoot. Ideally, your outdoor patio offers such a level of comfort that your guests feel more than comfortable to kick off their shoes and relax. You’ll want to select an outdoor rug that is both durable through the elements and comfortable for years to come. Luckily, Jaipur offers rugs that combine both of those needs without sacrificing great style and design! Whether you’re looking for a classically natural color scheme or a bold pop of color or pattern, the wide array of choices from Jaipur ensures you’ll find what you’re looking for. For a clean look, try the Jaipur Watts rug for a rug that will instantly brighten your outdoor space. Looking for a more modern look? Go for the bold lines of this Jaipur Minya rug in Silver & Black. Looking for a more traditional look? The indoor/outdoor rugs from Magnolia Home offer beautiful patterns and color schemes as well. Try the Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines Warwick rug for a natural twist on the typical traditional pattern. All of these rugs are versatile and suitable for both the indoors or outdoors, and since they’re resistant to UV, mold and mildew, you’re sure to enjoy them in a variety of spaces in and outside of your home.

Light up the Night

Just because the sun’s gone down doesn’t mean your outdoor entertaining has to end! In fact, a summer night underneath glowing lights and lanterns sounds pretty ideal to us! This summer, insure your outdoor space is set to accommodate the event lasting long into the night with lighting that will encourage your guests to stay awhile. Post lights from Currey & Company are the next generation of high-performance, weather-resistant lighting options that offer three levels of protection to prevent damage from rust or cracking. Set up a few of these post lights around your space to light the whole yard and bring your event out under the stars. A lantern-style light creates an instantly warm feel with the dreamy array of light. We love the Ripley Outdoor Lanterns hung over an outdoor dining table to truly enjoy some al fresco dining!

With the floors and lighting set, it’s time to make sure your seating options are inviting and comfortable. Materials like wicker, seagrass and rattan are classic staples for outdoor furniture, and a popular trend for summer decor. Add in some plush throw pillows and a few throw blankets for a space that you’ll truly never want to leave. Now that your outdoor space is set, it’s time to start planning you’re next big summer soiree!
