How to Create the Ultimate Backyard Oasis
Nothing fosters good conversation and copious amounts of laughter better than a well-planned seating arrangement. Comfort is key when lounging outdoors so use plushy lounge seating whereever you can. Mix in soft floor cushions and poufs as additional places to perch that won't take up too much extra space.

Exterior lighting is important for creating ambiance and setting the mood. Just like indoors, we suggest layering lighting sources to create a soft glow. Overhead twinkling or vintage-inspired globe lights are an excellent way to create a relaxing retreat. Add in overhead fixtures and globes, and don't forget exterior sconces or wall lanterns to help further illuminate your space.
