The weather is getting warmer and we can’t wait to get outside and hit the patios, decks, backyards or terraces. It doesn’t really matter what kind of outdoor space came with your home as long as you’re able to enjoy it. Last week was a long weekend and people fled to garden centres and patio furniture stores with plans for their backyard oasis. Homesense was packed yesterday with eager summer enthusiasts picking up everything from outdoor rugs and colourful cushions to hurricane lamps and BBQ accessories.
Whether it’s your city home’s backyard, your condo balcony or the deck at the cottage, anywhere where there’s a promise of a grill heating up or the sound of ice clinking in your glass that’s where you want to be this summer. If you’re lucky enough to have your very own outdoor space to relax in and you’re getting it ready for the season, here are some ideas that might help you get creative and inspired.
