How To Create An Outdoor Oasis

Angela von Detten

Hi Friends! Summer is approaching us soon, and it is the perfect time to transform your backyard or patio area into a dreamy, loungey, relaxation zone! I've put together some tips that can help you create a fresh & beautiful outdoor oasis! I hope these ideas inspire you!

ADD A FIRE PIT.


​​​​​​​Adding a fire pit will create a cozy atmosphere and will provide you year-round enjoyment! It 
is warm, inviting, and a great social spot!  I would recommend placing chairs around it so you can sit around with friends and family.

Enjoy the beauty of fire outside and while you are at it, make some s'mores too!
​​​​

ADD POTTED PLANTS.


​​​​​​​It is a minimal investment that will create a tropical lush look!

Plants & flowers have the ability to enhance the overall look of your outdoor space and give it a makeover! No matter how big or small the area may be- you can find the right size pots that will fit the space perfectly.

I personally love banana trees & lavender flowers!

ADD A WATER FOUNTAIN.


​​​​​​​Ready to feel super calm? Waterfalls not only look enchanting, they also can mask out any unwanted noise from traffic or neighbors. The sounds of trickling water can be stress-reducing and generate a spa like environment to your home. Enjoy a book, meditation, or some alone time with the calming effect a fountain can bring you!

CHOOSE A FUN AREA RUG.


Outdoor rugs are attractive & eye-catching. They add more style to your space! There are countless colors & designs that can fit the theme of your area- whether you are looking for something simple or fancy. There are also benefits to adding a rug- they will protect the floor and can be highly durable.

SET THE MOOD WITH LIGHTING.


One of my favorite designs is to hang cafe lights or string lights from trees, across the fence, or overhead for added light and style. These lights will give your space a glowing & romantic touch.

They will look magical when you are lounging in the evening!
