5 Steps To Perfect Your Summer to Fall Transition

Here comes prime outdoor time.

Crisp temperatures, cool evenings, and the heat waves -hopefully- coming to an end.

Although, your outdoor space may be living in bright blues and yellows with hanging lemons and an ocean wave patterned umbrella that was “the perfect staple in an outdoor oasis”. (I know, I’m guilty.) That may have worked for a month or two, but optimizing your outdoor space for any season or occasion will give you even more reason to be outdoors. Here’s how to keep your space in the ideal transition condition – and how to perfect it for the summer to fall transition.

1. With an Accent

Begin with neutral color decor and add accents as the seasons go. Find patio furniture and decor in neutral colors, then toss in some accent pillows that fit the season or your mood!

4. Lazy Gardening

It can be hard to keep a garden with unpredictable weather, or if you don’t have the time or resources necessary. Especially when the seasons change, I don’t know if a perennial is the plant version of a millennial! That is why, for appearance purpose- artificial plants are the best.
