3 Ways to Update Your Outdoor Space for Summer

When the weather gets warm, the stylish update their outdoor space!

Here are POPSUGAR home editor Angela Elias’ tips on transforming a lackluster backyard into an entertaining and summer lounging haven.

Tip 1. Choose rugs with patterns that pop

Handwoven indoor-outdoor rugs with vibrant, splashy designs can withstand the tread of guests and little ones running around. Choose reversible styles so you have options when the rugs get dirty (or if you need a change in design!).

Tip 2. Add mood lighting

String lights, lanterns and votives create a fun and festive mood outdoors. Set lanterns on top of colorful accent tables and hang string lights every which way to create a laid-back vibe.

Tip 3. Create a space that’s made for lounging

Umbrellas, benches, outdoor chairs and comfy throw pillows set the scene for guests to stay awhile and relax under the canopy of shade.
