Here are 3 outdoor accessories that are becoming more popular. They are bar carts, trays and fire tables.
Bar Carts are a very versatile item that can be used outdoors and then wheeled indoors and used throughout the year. It can be used to display some bar acessories such as a tray filled with glasses, a wine opener, a bottle cap opener and cocktail napkins. Some pretty colorful hand towels can be folded over one end of the bar cart.
Trays have been around along time and are practical and popular..If you use your tray as a foundation, you can place a colorful plant, a candle and a small accessory on top which adds a high design style. You can also use trays inside as well as outside which means it will be doing double-duty. Trays can also add a fun pop of color.
Fire tables have become very popular at many restaurants. However, most private homes do not have room for a large fire table. A new and exciting trend is "firespaces" that have a much smaller footprint. They can be used on dining tables, end tables, or as mobile lanterns and torches for indoor/outdoor use.
These firespaces create a beautiful warm glow and are portable, flexible and eco-friendly. They help create a warm inviting outdoor living areas and extend the season in cooler weather climates.
Candles, trays, rugs, accent tables and fire pit accessories are all great accessories to add to your outdoor living space. Sometimes the small things add a lot to make your outdoor paradise complete.
Whatever your style is, your professional interior designer can help make it just right for you. Your perfect paradise will not be the same as your neighbors. Your colors will not be the same and bright hues may be on your pillows, your throws and your towels as well as your beautiful flowers and foliage.
