Creating A Cozy Outdoor Space

I don’t know about you, but I live in the Midwest. If the weather is above 45° and the snow has melted, Spring has sprung. I’ve been hunkered down for the last 4 months, and I want some sunshine on my legs and fresh breeze on my face…even if that fresh breeze is crisp. That’s what coffee and blankets are for. Needless to say, I’ve been begging my husband to pull out the patio furniture from storage.

Last year I started to decorate my outdoor space, but I stopped when it came to rugs. With so many beautiful patterns, shapes, and colors to choose from, how could I choose just one direction? This year is another story. I’ve got my inspiration set, and I’m ready to shop.

An outdoor rug will give your space that needed focal point. It really doesn’t matter if it’s small or large. What does matter is creating that cozy space…the space you want to relax in. By defining your space, you tie all the patio decor together. It’s an easy way to bring in some extra color, texture, and pattern. Plus, you are increasing your square footage. Outdoor rugs are just the foundation you need that will take your space from ho-hum to shazam!
