Liven Up Your Dining Area
Summer is all about celebrations and endless alfresco dining opportunities. Create a welcoming ambiance for your dinner parties with a few string lights. Use a big tree as the base. You can simply drape the lights of the tree to the roof and let your backyard come to life. If you’re hosting a garden party or have a date night planned anytime soon, you could also use these string lights to create a tent-like feel above the dinner table step up. Need something a little more whimsical? Pair your string lights with illuminated jars for a breathtaking display.
Spruce Up Your Patio
Firstly, create a comfortable nook with plush seating furniture and filled with cushions. Once you have your furniture in place, next concentrate on how you use the space. For instance, if you have exposed beams hang string lights along. A streamlined strand will keep things simple and minimalistic. It will not only exude a sort of industrial-chic look but will surely become your favorite space during summer. You could also add candle lanterns to bring additional warmth into space. Unroll a rug so it looks more like an extension of your home. It’s aesthetically pleasing and definitely adds some style. If you have lots of trees around, dress them up with hanging lanterns for a magical evening.
Brighten Up Your Balcony
To make your balcony an extension of your outdoor living room, opt for traditional lighting techniques. Go for a resilient floor lamp in a nature-inspired color or in metallic. And if you have a swing, be sure to place it far from it. You could also go for LED lights or hanging lanterns for a dazzling light. It makes hanging lights look uniform and not messy. Place a small coffee table, and you’re good to surprise your bae for a quaint, romantic dinner night. You could use a pendent for more light or just as a decoration as well.
