  • Creating the Ultimate Outdoor Oasis
    by SIRC on June 4, 2020 at 7:10 pm

    With ‘staycations’ on the rise, more and more homeowners are designing and creating their very own backyard retreats, complete with high-end outdoor flat screen televisions, luxurious all-weather furniture, chic accessories, gorgeous outdoor kitchens, and luminous lighting. Designers have truly set the bar in terms of landscaping and décor and we are pleased to share some top-notch design and décor tips for creating an outdoor space you’ll never want to leave. To begin, you should think of your backyard as a true extension of your home--where lounging, cooking, and entertaining seamlessly intertwine. Just as you plan for designing and decorating the interior of your home, it is essential to create a solid plan of action before you start shopping for your backyard oasis-to-be. Think about colour schemes - neutral colours should be the mainstay, with one or two bright accent colours to make your space pop, style - will your décor be modern versus country, and of course, a list of elements you’d like to include - such as a fire bowl, TV, and pond. Once you have your plan, it’s time to look at your options, in terms of furniture, lighting, landscaping, and accessories.
