Outdoor artwork and patio accessories can be the difference between an outdoor living space that is good versus one that is downright stunning. Outdoor decor and art create a distinctive and finished look that reflects your personality and lifestyle. Below are a few outdoor living space ideas to spruce up your home’s exterior.
Placement is key with an outdoor sculpture, so consider the space. Will the piece be seen from the inside, or is it selected primarily for its look while outside? Will it be viewed from up close or from far away? Some pieces are kinetic, meaning they move with the slightest breeze, and some are reflective of light and water. Will the piece be viewed at night? In that case, you may want outdoor lighting to enhance your outdoor art piece at night.
For some outdoor garden wall decor ideas, a blank fence or house/garage wall can be the perfect canvas for a piece of outdoor wall art. A single object — or a minimal collection of similar objects — will create a focal point, which is especially key when opposite a door or window. The Climbing Man sculpture and Hanging Orb planters can work on their own, or together, depending on the size and configuration of the space.
An outdoor wall art panel such as the one below — fabricated of steel in a custom-designed floral pattern — is ideal if you need to create a privacy screen or a piece of artwork to obscure an undesirable view.
Another outdoor living area idea is to use more outdoor accessories. Adding any type of garden décor can enhance a space and fill it with beauty and personality. A light touch is necessary, so choose and display them carefully. Garden spheres are terrific on a patio or in the landscape surrounded by plants. Concrete glazed in multiple colors, or hollow spheres, with string lights inside, can add a modern feel to any outdoor areas.
Lanterns are another great way to bring color and ambiance to the patio. Either on a tabletop or on the floor, they look good during broad daylight; their silhouette brings warmth and sparkle at night.
