We can't recall a past summer that has been more lovely than the current one Angelenos have been enjoying. Except for that heat smack that we encountered almost a month ago, the summer of twenty ten has been one to appreciate and it's probably inspired plenty of outdoor space improvements.
Coco (of Coco Cozy) has a similar mindset choosing recently to revamp her deck in favor of more bright pops of color.
If you find yourself considering a makeover, take note of Coco's alterations and minor changes that really added up.
Seat cushions While Coco splurged and had her cushions reupholstered, you can pick up new cushions or drape the fabric of your choosing for a new color palette.
Add colorful accessories Pillows, lanterns and planters are the quickest way to jazz up your outdoor space while bridging two (or three) areas together cohesively.
Don't forget the rug An outdoor rug adds coziness to any outdoor space and we love the patterned rug that Coco picked out--it really does enhance and define the seating area.
All the extras A table runner keeps the new outdoor vibe alive by adding a little texture and pattern to the teak dining table. Coco also reworks a bland coffee table and some folding chairs with a coat of bold paint (Tropical Waters; Behr Paint).
