These days, we’re spending a great deal of time at home: Not only are we working from home and relaxing there in the evenings, too, we’re also hosting small, distanced gatherings in our outdoor spaces and planning staycations. Which means that as spring turns into summer and the days get warmer, it’s the ideal time to transform your patio, deck, garden, or even your entire yard into a serene lounge space that’s perfect as a quiet weekend escape and ready-made for fresh-air visits.
Think about setting up your outdoor living space much like you would when planning your interiors. Here are five key ideas to keep in mind when creating your at-home retreat—plus our favorite finds from Rejuvenation’s Outdoor Shop to complete it.
1. Start with lighting.
2. Design an alfresco dining spot.
3. Bring the indoors out.
4. Add a fan.
5. Create the perfect planterscape (and potting shed).
These are the Modern Fiberstone Rectangle Planters in black (from $129), the slatted teak Jasper Tall Planter ($519) and Jasper Wide Planter ($519), and the Modern Fiberstone Tapered Planter ($149). See the full selection of planters and pots here.
