Adding personal touches to a boring patio/living set

Even if you've purchased a beautiful, modern outdoor sofa set it still needs a little styling. Heck, everything needs styling; and the more I'm designing, the more I'm noticing any space can be beautiful if it has character and soul. How do you do this? With random items around your home. A great place to start is the linen closet. And why not. There's are tons of blankets, pillows, throws, you may not be using. They can act as carpets or draped on a lounge chair. Even large shawls and scarves look amazing. 

Here are a few inspiring photos with ideas to spark your own imagination.

Indoor pillows, rattan stools

Add a fringe detail to an otherwise boring umbrella!

Use ikea sheep skin rugs as a comfy cushy seat!

Pitch a tent and furnish it like an extra dining space!

Love, love, love this idea! I need to find a white tent. Or make one, preferable find one;)

My patio hasn't changed much since last year. I'm still loving my DIY pallet daybed which I use occasionally to lie and relax with a good book.  You can check out that post here if you're new here!

I've helped friends of mine put together the sweetest little garden in their backyard this weekend. It completely changes the space. I will reveal it in tomorrow's post so stay tuned!
