The outdoors is a remarkable place where you can just sit, relax and stare at the stars while you renew yourself for the next day’s work. Create a tasteful and warm spot for your family in the backyard with this decorating guide from Balsam Hill.
Creating an outdoor retreat
Decks, patios and porches can be treated much like the inside of the home where you can use your own sense of style. Add a few pieces of furniture as you would in the living room, but vary according to how you want the space used. For example, if you want to have a picnic area, invest in an outdoor grill and an outdoor dining table.
If you wish to have an al fresco lounge, adding the comfiest couch will do. But a couch is only as good as how warm it feels. Make your seats comfortable by cozying them up with a few throw pillows or blankets.
The Pendleton Blanket from Balsam Hill is made of wool, a natural thermal insulator that keeps you warm no matter how lightweight the fabric is. This premium plaid throw does not only make your seats look elegant and inviting, but also makes you feel cozy. Just relax on the couch with the blanket on your lap and you will find how warm and comforting your outdoor sanctuary is.
