How to Decorate Your Outdoor Space- NYC Edition



“I finally made it big” you’re thinking to yourself as you admire your outdoor space in the concrete jungle. Finally, you have a space that you’re proud to call your own. However, are you completely proud to show it off? If you are lucky enough to find yourself with any of your own outdoor space, don’t take it for granted! With summer quickly approaching, there’s so much you can do with the limited valuable space you’ve gotten your hands on.

If you have any (small) outdoor “get togethers” in mind or just need a place to unwind, you need to make sure your city “backyard” looks as cool and trendy as possible, with the added bonus of functionality. We’re talking about making sure you have a small semblance of privacy in the typically congested NYC.

Once you we’ve made sure your neighbors are keeping their friendly distance, throw some rad outdoor furniture into the mix. Obviously some seating would be a great starter, but if you’re lucky enough to have a suburb sized space in the land where a square foot can cost you and arm and a leg, incorporate some table and decorative pieces into the mix.  When the sun begins to set you don’t want to be left out in the dark, so we’re going to hook you up with some mood lighting as well. Lastly, you know how we tell you an outfit is only as good as the accessories to match? Same thing applies to your home décor.  Spruce up some basic pieces by adding your own sense of style with some funky home additional pieces.

Don’t get too overwhelmed, you don’t need to be an HGTV handyman or a less hardened Martha Stewart to transform your outdoor space into something more useful than a place to store your bike. Read on and I promise you’ll have the most on point space within your borough (or at least your block).
