Get the Look: Cozy Furnished Patio

September 22nd, 2017

Fall has officially started, but there’s no need to bring all of your parties and celebrations indoors just yet. Create a warm, romantic and peaceful patio or entertaining space outdoors to soak up as much of the evening sun as possible with friends and loved ones before – dare we say it – snow arrives. Here is a little inspiration, and below, how you can get the look with home accents from Sturbridge Yankee Workshop.

You will of course need seating. Our Wrought Iron Lattice Bench is the best option for weatherproof, durable and timeless outdoor seating, and as you can see in the image above, comfort is added with throw blankets and pillows (Teak furniture is another great option).

You can choose to show off the buffalo check or decorative style of your bench cushion, or tuck coordinating throws around it, providing additional coziness and a way to stay warm on chillier nights.

Vintage Tin Lantern Accent LightBuffalo Check ThrowFor lighting (in addition to a warm fire), outdoor candles or lanterns will create a soft glow and add decorative appeal to the space. Our Vintage Tin Lantern Light is made specifically for the outdoors, and even has a timer so you don’t have to worry about forgetting to turn it off. You could also turn your Mason jars into accent lights with a Solar LED cover that will fit any standard opening.

So pick a seat, enjoy the comforts of these functional and decorative [outdoor] home accents, and gather together with friends and family outdoors this fall!
