Have you been itching for a summer DIY project? A covered living area wouldn't be a bad addition to your house. Well if you've got the time and energy, I've got some tips to make this a great space!
Blur the lines between inside and outside. Bring out artwork and rugs, but make sure they can withstand the elements. Use plenty of plants to bring in some green.
Who can resist a trellis, maybe some climbing flowers....a little slice of heaven. Maybe throw in some decorative touches like lanterns and beach glass. Also, don't be afraid to be a little bolder in color and scale than you would be in your home. Nature can handle it.
