People who buy new homes in Frisco often welcome guests by hosting an outdoor dinner party. An outdoor area like a patio is a great place to wine, dine and socialize with family and friends. Randal Weeks, founder of Aidan Gray Home, a McKinney based home furnishings retailer, recommends the use of mixed materials, garden elements and splashes of color to elevate the design and decor of outdoor settings. Here are a few suggestions from Weeks on how you can create a chic and welcoming outdoor space for your home.
Grow with it – Place a potato vine in a basket to add an instant pop of bright green to any table top or area that can handle a trailing plant. You can also set a casual, elegant tone for a garden party by placing small grasses or catnip into several small vases on the dining table, instead of using a more traditional floral centerpiece.
Basket settings – Stack small, medium and large baskets atop one another to create a succulent garden or herb garden. The baskets create a dramatic effect that is easy to care for and water.
Focus it – Creating focal points in your outdoor space can help with the visual display. One way to do is to place a topiary in a favorite bucket, place an old piece of metal behind it, and then place the bucket in a tired corner to add an instant sense of drama.
Mix it up – Small coffee tables can be used effectively as outdoor furniture. Rather than buy new pieces, you can repurpose old antiques with concrete. The added benefit is that the furniture will be virtually indestructible so the pieces can be used outdoors year round. Plus, the mixed materials allow you to be more creative without compromising durability.
Add water – Outdoor spaces can always benefit from the addition of water. You can feature a whimsical fountain as the centerpiece of your space, or tuck it into the corner of a garden for the perfect reflective noise.
