Whoop, Whoop! That title reminds me of 99 bottles of beer on the wall . . . Just kidding! Our ‘77 Fire Pit Ideas’ (includes Outdoor Decor) is #5, last and final video of a 5-part series on Backyard Decor Ideas. These videos share hundreds of fully decorated outdoor living spaces. Wrapping it up for 2020 outdoor décor with outdoor furniture until we blaze into 2021.

Firepits with Décor

If you are deciding how to decorate your outdoor living space, give this video a whirl. It shows why outdoor decorating is so important while showing off fire pit ideas. Once you see the numerous types – gas burning firepits, wood burning firepits, in every shape and size, you are sure to get an abundance of fire pit ideas. However, you might need assistance when it comes the design build process. We are happy to help: Complimentary Consultation?

Design It – Build It – Enjoy It

Once dreamed, decided, designed, & built … then the fun part: Decorating Around A Fire Pit.

Since I’ve been styling firepit areas for over 12 years my first thought is about the style and color of the rest of the décor. I’ve known many homeowners to grab the first barstools they find, and the stools are too short and do not match the aesthetic. Then, they choose entirely wrong style and off-color stools to ring around the firepit. Please realize, these 2 types of outdoor living seats are focal points for your guests’ pleasure in your backyard. Their first thought upon arrival is comfort-ability and where am I going to sit?  That is why choosing perfect stools is important. You want to draw them over to secure their spot – visually.


Say No to Impulse Purchases

First of all, I cannot believe I wrote that title! (Really Kim, you?) Secondly, I hope I haven’t offended anyone by saying stop & think before you spend. It sincerely makes the difference in a magnificent outdoor space and a so-so space. Surely, I am wrong? Nope. Why? ‘Cuz I’ve made the same mistake many times over. They say you don’t make the same mistake twice, right? Well folks, sometimes it takes awhile to figure it out. I have and I want to share it with you.

As much as I’d love to help you decorate your landscape or decorate your outside patio, you need to consider all the points in this series BEFORE you buy ANYTHING. And it is HARD NOT TO! Now that Outdoor Living is trending, there are so many, too many choices. What you thought you couldn’t live without today has you STUCK with it tomorrow.

In closing, I must laugh at how many 10 years plus umbrellas I’ve seen in brand-spanking-new landscape designs. What? In 2020, umbrellas and furniture are the best prices of the century. Buy new. These outdoor living goods are a great price and will last 3-5 seasons. You will more than likely want to change it up – really . . . prices allow it! Especially as new fun outdoor ideas get better and better. We no-longer live our lives with mom-dad mentality – “solid-furniture-to-last-a life-time.”

So spread your wings and fly…. But don’t forget: color, style, bells & whistles, & always . . . less is more.
