Take It Outside!

Thursday, March 28, 2013

Spring has indeed sprung in many areas (not in my area, yet :-( ). That means it's time to move on out - outside that is

If you are fortunate enough to have ANY kind of outdoor space, treat it like an extension of your living space. Whether it's a tiny balcony, a deck, yard or patio, think of it as part of your daily living space during the Spring, Summer and Fall seasons.

That transition from inside to outside should be an EZ one! Treat your space like an outdoor living room. Add a throw, LOTS of pillows. Add lighting for evening use. Set the table. Add pots of colorful seasonal plants.

If you are considering selling your home, you really need to show off your outdoor space. It should be inviting enough to encourage would-be buyers to not only check it out, but linger and enjoy it a bit. And, if you're not going anywhere anytime soon, just do it for yourself. It's like putting an addition on your space for the warm months to come. You might even feel like hosting a party!
