How to Create the Best Outdoor Living Room on the Block
Ah, the outdoor
living room – airy, refreshing, soothing, clever. KC gardeners, decorators and
crafters are taking the concept of outdoor living rooms to new levels this
year. You can, too, with the right garden containers. Why not try a few of your
own custom creations? This will make your outdoor living space one you crave
time in and are glad to show off.
No doubt, this year outdoor living rooms are getting
more attention than ever with bright colors, bold patterns, textiles and seat
covers; even pillows and rugs are complementing these colors. If you have a
space with only a few walls, or a half-wall, no problem – accent it with
decorative photo frames and put actual pictures in behind the glass. This can
become a fun talking point and makes the space that much more special.
One of the most important elements of your outdoor living room is the addition
of unique garden containers. These can be a variety of textures, but recycled paper
hypertufa makes an extra-special medium. You can create your own custom garden
containers by mixing and shaping it, and then paint or decorate to match your
color scheme. Hypertufa can be bright, rustic or weathered; it can be wildly-colored
or calm and soothing – plus, plants love it for its breathability.
You can even make a hypertufa garden container to use as a snack or drink stand, or a custom hypertufa intable, to be placed very neatly alongside your outdoor furniture. Choose a pattern with a
wide base, then turn it upside down and set your favorite beverage on it for a
useful conversation piece. You can even create amazing hypertufa platters for
making your comfortable outdoor space the envy of the block. Want to get your hands dirty and make your own garden containers for your awesome outdoor living room? Come to the hypertufa studio workshop July 13 and 14 at From the Summer’s Garden. Your outdoor living space will be so much better for it!
