Big Changes From a Little Fabric

Add a little excitement to your patio furniture by adding pops of bright colours with your cushions and pillows. A nice lime green is always a good choice, and switch to warmer oranges and reds for when the weather starts to cool down. The bright white accent on our dark Lovett sectional makes everything standout just that much more!



Simple Path

There’s something about having a nice stone pathway included in your outdoor space, and believe it or not, they are very easy to do. Forget the mortar and just smooth out your area, lay down a thick layer of river rocks, and select your flagstone you’d wish to lay down. There you have it, simple, yet elegant.
