Outdoor Decorating

Although the temperatures don’t feel spring-like in Ontario yet, it is indeed spring out there and now is the perfect time to be thinking about how you will be decorating your outdoor spaces.

The Home Depot invited us editors to their spring preview recently, and they had a lot of fun new products to show off.

One of their tips is to decorate your outdoor space like you would your indoor space. Their coordinating colours, patterns and materials make this easy.

This lounge set has a metal base for outdoor longevity. The red cushions coordinate with the red-and-white outdoor rug, and the throw cushions add a stylish hit. The coffee table has sections that lift up for easy nibbling if you’re entertaining.

This second lounge set — the Hampton Bay 3 piece set — is made from a neutral weave and the coffee table is made from recycled plastic. Combine different outdoor pieces like they did here so your patio doesn’t look too matchy-matchy.

For condo dwellers with small balconies, these bistro sets are perfect. This 3-piece set comes in six different colours and would be a fun addition to any outdoor space.

Lastly, don’t forget about your spring and summer flowers. The Home Depot has tons of fresh offerings to add some colour to your balcony or backyard.
