We're going to be spending plenty of time at home for the next couple of months, but that doesn't mean we have to be limited to the indoors! Whether you've got a private balcony or a spacious backyard, there are numerous ways to spruce up the space and make it your own little haven.
INSTALL A GARDEN MIRROR
Usually plentiful throughout the home, mirrors seldom make an appearance outside, which is a shame because they bring plenty to the party. Try a wall to wall mirror on any side of the outdoor space and watch it do wonders when it comes to elongating and brightening the scene. If you prefer to go for something a little more discreet, there's a vast selection of framed mirrors or you could try your own hand at incorporating ivy and other hanging plants.
GROW A LIVING WALL
There's always something incredibly enchanting about a living plant wall, especially in the fall when the leaves create a gorgeous palette of colours. Perfect for a calming backdrop and environmentally friendly, this option is a go-to if you're searching for ways to bring nature into your living space.
PLAY WITH LIGHTING AND SHADOWS
Light is a surprisingly useful tool with beautifully transformative effects. Depending on the layout and features present in your outdoor space, you can play around with stringed lights, create silhouettes, or draw attention to garden favourites. Tinker around with the angles of the beams as well as the warmth of the lights to create a personalized effect that is sure to catch the attention of your neighbourhood.
Even though we're going to be stuck at home for a while longer, don't let that stop your creativity and home goals!
