The fall is almost here and we can’t wait. Soon, you’ll be able to relax on your patio or enjoy your gazebo without having to sweat. It’s going to be amazing. The question is, which accessories do you need to help your space transition into fall?
Create a Romantic Glow
With autumn comes a sense of romance. Maybe it’s the change of the leaves or the approach of the holiday season, but the feeling is undeniable. To help heighten the sense of magic, clever lighting is your best friend.
Lanterns and string lighting can bring an ethereal sense to your home’s backyard. You can also bring torches into your design if you’re not quite ready to let go of summer just yet.
Bring the Colors of Autumn to Your Backyard
Fall is marked by the changing of the leaves. The bright greens and yellows of summer begin to soften into the oranges and reds of fall. There’s a certain sophistication in the fall color palette; a sophistication you can complement in a few different ways:
- Flowers are always great for bringing color to a space. Chrysanthemums, pansies, back-eyed Susans, and ornamental grasses can bring a lot of fall flavor to your patio.
- You can also introduce a new throw rug in a rich red or even a royal purple onto your patio to give it a little pop of color and adding a sense of luxury.
- If you have patio furniture, swap out the pillows or cushions with autumn shades of browns, oranges, or reds.
- Flower pots are a major decorative piece on the patio. If you can, swap out your pots with colors which complement the fall – simple terracotta pots are a safe bet!
Fire Features Bring Your Patio to Life
Traditionally, evenings in the fall can be a little chilly. A fire pit can help bring a little warmth to your patio while also adding a point of interest. Fire pits built into your patio help bring the whole space together while also offering functionality.
However, if the fire doesn’t provide enough heat for cool fall evenings, you can always add a patio heater and a few throw blankets to your design.
