Use Pretty Lighting


Green outdoor floor lamp


Lighting can really jazz up any outdoor space, and make it such a lovely pretty place to hang out in during those summer evenings.  The green Solvinden lamp above is an LED solar powered floor lamp.  It stands about 8 inches high, and you can scatter several all around for the best lighting.  The Solviden string lights below are also solar-powered LED lights, and all 12 beautiful blue diamond lights can be strung around anything, including trees, bushes and furniture to light up your outdoor space beautifully.

Decorate with Pretty Cushions

Colorful cushions can really make any space prettier and nicer to be in.  Your outdoor space is no exception. Get pretty cushions to scatter around on your outdoor furniture.  This Funkon cushion cover from IKEA is in pretty turquoise and green stripes.  The fabric is water repellent, and won’t fade in the direct sun. 

Plant Pretty Plants & Flowers

Even if you don’t have a lot of room outside to plant things, you can always buy containers and pots and start a container garden. This Askholmen plant pot comes complete with a trellis too. So can you plant a beautiful trailing plant, that will grow up the trellis too!


Have a way to Cook Food

The best outdoor spaces have a way to cook and prepare food, so you can cater to all those guests you are going to invite over! In case you didn’t know, IKEA does sell a selection of stylish grills too! This Applaro grill is attractive to look at, reasonably priced, and matches other outdoor furniture that IKEA sells too!

Have Somewhere to Relax
