Adding the Finishing Touches to Small Spaces To Create an Outdoor Oasis

May 13, 2009

One of my readers sent me their Favorite Outdoor Retreat Photo

Even the smallest balcony can be designed with beautiful accessories that add the finishing touches to create an outdoor oasis. This particular retreat has a bamboo ceiling, sisal rug, Sunbrella® Outdoor Drapes, lots and lots of cushy pillows a sofa, coffee table, throw blanket and table runner. Candles, foliage and a statue adds just the right amount of ambiance.

As you can see mixing and matching fabric, pillow style and colors blend smoothly together to form a place that invites you to sit, relax, unwind and reflect.

Paisley patterns, stripes, textures and natural elements complement the unique style on this outdoor balcony. The flowing Sunbrella® drapes provide privacy and a sense of romance.

You don’t have to have a large space to create an outdoor haven, just a little thought, and inspiration is all you need to embellish even the plainest spaces.
