On the heels of Memorial Day, the unofficial start of summer, many families begin thinking about the creating the perfect outdoor space. For me, one of the greatest parts of being a home owner is the extension of home in to the out of doors. My home in Atlanta was my ultimate "Barbie Dreamhouse" and had a cute patio space outback.
Creating a comfortable outdoor space was an on-going project that I revisited each summer. I had many things to consider; furniture, plants, lighting, bug repellant, and even wifi.
My biggest challenge was trying to tackle all things at once. Of course, my mom quickly told me to take on one project at a time.
My first choice was plants then on to outdoor furniture. There were so many outdoor furniture styles to compare. I had to select tables, chairs or sets; cushions, no cushions, it was a lot.
I knew my overall goal was to create Tuscan oasis in the middle of an Atlanta suburb. I did somewhat but I know the patio needs more.
How did you spruce your outdoor space for the summer?
