Dining Among the Trees

It is finally that time of year where us Floridians love to soak in that beautiful sunshine outdoors. We will find any excuse to be outside and we love to spend time in our backyards. Why not create a beautiful outdoor dining space to entice all of your guests to join you?

To make your outdoor dining space feel cozy and inciting, start by adding a beautiful centerpiece. The easiest way to bring some color and scale to your table is to use some fresh flowers or greenery. The next elements to add in are some great neutral placemats and layers of place settings. Setting your table before your guests arrive not only dresses up your table, but it also allows you to have everything you need ready to go once dinner is served. Last but not least, add in a great lighting fixture, whether it is a chandelier, a string of lights, or even a paper lantern. Sprinkle in some candles and voila, you have an outdoor space ready to entertain!

Cozy Up by the Fire

It's really interesting to watch how the design world has evolved to embrace the concept of outdoor living. It all came about from the concept of wanting to sit and eat at a table on your back patio while your dad grilled out. Today, homeowners and designers are creating elaborate outdoor kitchens, covered patios and, yes, beautiful outdoor fireplaces.

Honestly it doesn't matter where in the United States you live… outdoor fireplaces and fire pits are popping up everywhere. Here in Florida, many of us even have them in our backyards. What I love is that you really are creating a designed and defined room when you install or build one. It becomes your focal point in your backyard. This then leads to the placement of your furniture and your accessories and then you realize that you just designed a room for the outdoors. Outdoor fireplaces come in all shapes, sizes, and all price points. The only thing you need is to do is some research on whether or not you want to use a gas model or not and then start selecting your materials. The final step is to grab a glass of wine and someone you love and enjoy a beautiful evening outside.
