Creating Outdoor Space

Welcoming Summer Decor

Bees are buzzing, lawnmowers are humming and barbecue grills are sending up the delicious smells of summer! So, now is the perfect time to freshen up your outdoors for some prime family time and sun-shiny entertainment.

 

Your backyard patio is a great place to start because that’s where all the fun happens, whether you seek shade and a snooze on a comfy pillowed lounge or some shooting stars alongside a gleaming string of lights and glowing lantern that add sparkle to the night.

 

Dining al fresco is a wonderful way to escape a hot kitchen and embrace the warm breezes on a summer evening. Patio dining options are plentiful, with step-up bars and more formal sit-down tables that can enjoy your favorite outdoor décor. Think colorfully patterned throw pillows and cheerful centerpieces of fresh, seasonal flowers for a summery look.

Outdoor Living

Family time is prime time when spent outside your new TRI Pointe home, relaxing, playing cards, soaking up some rays on a beachy chaise or settling around a fire pit for an evening of delicious s’mores and storytelling.

 

Finally, bring the inside to the outside with comfy throws, cushy rugs and ceiling fans to keep the air moving around you. Fill your flower beds with beautiful blooms and some hearty, water-wise plants that will last year round. And consider adding umbrellas to your décor for stylish shade options.

 

Best of all, while June 21 officially marks the start of summer, California residents are treated to balmy weather all year long. So, spruce up your backyard patio now and enjoy the great outdoors today and every day.
