2. Choose a Shape

I was always told that you can’t go wrong with a round – where diamonds are concerned, and it also applies to furniture. Round is an inviting, shape that’s conducive for conversation and perfect for gatherings. Or if you want something slightly more formal? A long, rectangular table makes for elegant outdoor dinner parties. Look for an outdoor sectional set that can be rearranged on a whim. Keep Feng Shui in mind and arrange the pieces to create the perfect vibe.

From the color and texture of the cushions to the decorative extras, your outdoor accessories will bring your space to life. Add eclectic throw pillows for some pop! Light up a fire pit for chilly evenings. Everyone will love to sit out and enjoy the stars under the moonlight. Line the walkway with solar pathway lights. The options are endless!
