5 Patio Perk-Ups

May 11, 2009

I love to be outside for the brief time we call Spring in Texas. Like today, a soaking rain, a cool inviting temperature and a light breeze.  A good porch day. A good porch day means some work has been done in advance to create a ambiance in your outdoor environment. If your porch still needs a perk up here are a few suggestions for surrounding yourself with beauty.

1. Purchase an inexpensive baker’s rack, and fill it full of colorful plants and pottery. Intersperse a few citronella candles to keep the bugs at bay.

2. A wooden slatted swing or glider is a wonderful way to relax. Place one on the patio to add a serene and relaxed touch. Fill it with fluffy pillows.

3. Use brightly colored pillow cushions on your patio chairs.

4. Tender-sounding wind chimes make a lovely addition and a soft and beautiful sound on breezy days.

5. Purchase a colorful door mat that coordinates with your flower selections.
