Nail Your Outdoor Decor For Summer Entertaining

With summer right around the corner, the idea of warming weather and longer days will encourage many of us to entertain outdoors. While backyard entertaining is exciting, don’t get us wrong, sprucing up a neglected outdoor space can be a major undertaking. Luckily the showrooms at Seattle Design Center are chock full of outdoor pieces that can revive and augment patio or outdoor space, and create a beautiful space you and your potential guests will love spending time in.

Lighten your outdoor space with wood patio furniture in natural shades for an airy, open space. Dark colors tend to weigh down spaces. Lighter colors like white, beige, and some shades of tan can help create the illusion of a larger space. Contemporary designs with clean lines can be found in the Christophe Delacourt Collection at the Susan Mills Showroom. The collection’s two dining tables and matching chairs can be styled for any occasion.

Textiles in bright colors and prints can add comfort and personality to your oudoor entertaining space.

Consider anchoring the space with a statement piece. The Reef Round Stone Table from the Christophe Delcourt Collection at Susan Mills Showroom with its marble finished top brings an air of modern sophistication outdoors. A large-scale decorative wall piece can bring a major wow factor to a space and help set the tone and theme for other design elements.
