3 simple ways to Bring Spring to Your Home

I love visiting artists’ studios. Often, I am just so amazed how they make the spaces so livable with simple creative ideas and great cares.   There are always fresh flowers and plants in their studio making guests feel so inviting and fresh.   Of course, we can learn from them too.  Here are 3 simple ways to bring spring indoors.

  1. Having fresh flowers and greenery everywhere in your home. You can just pick them from your backyard–it is touch of nature.

Fresh flowers always make me smile!

 

2. Hosting a spring party in your garden with fresh-cut flowers , home-made organic cocktail and cozy seating , and  your party venue  become part of spring memory.

Hope you enjoy your 4th July holiday.  Here is ours by the poolside.  The fabric,  decorative pillows, outdoor draped daybeds and lounge chairs really put us in a relaxing mood.  Maybe you can get some inspirations to dress up your poolside.

Small Outdoor Living Space Before & After

 

We have 90+ degree weather for several days.  It looks like summer is here.  Well,  the weather in LA is always such a drama.  But with Memorial Day next week and official summer beginning on June 22nd, we know now it’s the great time to plan outdoor living for summer and enjoy nature as much as we can.

Outdoor living space can be large, luxurious and also can be as simple as a  small area that is dedicated to get-together lounging and entertaining.  Although it’s small, there are  always ways to make it interesting.   The outdoor living space we created in the video is French country style featuring with blue-stone circular pavers around the tree, French bistro chairs, teak dining table, wrought iron bench.   The orange fashionable umbrella adds a pop of color while perennial plants such as  ivy, iris, bird paradise lend a romantic feel to the space.

 

 

Enjoy and have a great Sunday!

2. Have the pop of the colors to cheer you up.

3. Build  an outdoor kitchen or bar to entertain your guests in grand or humble.

4. Set seatings in groups to create intimacy.

5. Create stylish table vignettes your guests can appreciate and talk about.

2. Use pop-up of colors—that will make you happy.

3. Install outdoor drapery panels—create a cozy and intimate atmosphere.

4. Create space for your hobby—art painting, reading corners or mini-bar.

5. Have some delicate decor accessories—fresh flowers and trays.  Something a little bit fancy to put you in the relaxing mood.
