5 Ways to Upgrade Your Outdoor Space

Now that we are deep into summer, we are outside more these days. We also got a puppy so it's forcing us outside anyway for potty breaks. I have yet to pull out the pillows and rug to make the patio pretty. I guess I feel like I only need them when we have company over. My husband and kids could care less about the decor. All they want is somewhere to sit.

Think of your outdoor space as an extension of your inside home. A place to entertain guests and enjoy nature. Make it fun. Make it you!


1. Define the space with a rug. An outdoor rug can help anchor the area.


2. Add color and texture with outdoor pillows.


3. Light it up with string and pathway lights. Lights can help illuminate the area and also give a special ambiance at night.


4. Add fun accessories to fill empty space. Planters and lanterns are ways to bring in more color and fun elements. Plants will also bring life to your space.


5. Make it cozy with a firepit. It will bring warmth to your space and make it an inviting place to hang out at night.

Introducing E-Design Services!!

I am very excited to announce the launch of my e-design services! I have been wanting to do this for forever and all the signs kept pointing me towards this. God knew my heart and everybody I talked to, every quote I saw said follow your dreams. This past Sunday at church we had a guest speaker and his message was about how your success and business was right up under you. I have dreams about designing. I can watch design shows all day and never tire. I see other people's homes and re-arrange furniture and paint walls in my head.

E-design is such an affordable option and more budget friendly than hiring a traditional designer. It also allows me to work with people down the street or across the country. I can't wait to start helping you make your home the one you always wanted it to be. Whether it's a room makeover or starting with a blank canvas, I can help!



Here's how it works. You email me photos of your space, photos of rooms you like that fit your style, and a description of what you are looking for. How will the room be used? How do you want it to feel? What colors do you like? You will also let me know the budget you have for the space.

When your custom design is ready, it will be emailed to you. You will receive a custom design board, a shopping list of items in the design, and a description of those items and placement in the room. If something doesn't feel right or there is a piece you don't like, I will change it.

You are now free to purchase items and install them at your convenience. See the E-Design page for more information.

Ready to get started? Just email me at decoratingcentsblog@gmail.com.

Get The Look: Mid-Century Family Room

Well hello there. One of my most favorite things is design. I love a good before and after and the hunt for that perfect piece to finish a space. I'm sure many of you, like myself, see a beautiful room and wonder where certain items came from or how you can make this room come to life for yourself. That is where I come in. I love to source products and help you design the dream space you've always wanted within your budget.

Let's take a look at this family room.
