1) Change out doormats seasonally – this is an easy, budget friendly way to give guests a special welcome as soon as they arrive! The Beach Braided Jute Accent Doormat sets the tone – it’s time to relax and kick off those flip flops!

2) Keep baskets right outside the door for fun and easy access to towels and sandals. We used the Blue Seagrass Basket Set which has beautiful watery, nautical blue tones.

3) Three-dimensional wall art will make a unique statement outside your home- don’t be afraid to use items every day in non-traditional ways. Here, the Rattan Chevron Trays serve a dual purpose: we created a living wall by simply weaving through fresh cut greens. Use any stems, flowers or branches from outside to get this look. These can be switched out as often as needed.

4) Candle-lit lanterns make your entry welcoming and intimate. Mixing sizes and styles gives your space character and dimension. The Faceted Glass Lanterns give off a warm glow and the brass accents feel luxe.

5) Change out pillows and throws seasonally, and don’t be afraid to mix and match patterns and sizes. Anchor your furniture with a pair of larger pillows and layer on smaller sizes for an outdoor oasis feel. Mixing the Gray Pom-Pom Pillow with the Indigo Block Print Dhurrie Cotton Lumbar Pillow feels unexpected and cool. The Navy Stripe Throw adds another fun layer to the mix.

6) Mix different textures and materials when picking out serving pieces – a hand carved wood bowl feels warm and earthy while cloth napkins bring an easy elegance to your outdoor space. The Carved Wood Nested Bowl mixes perfectly with the beautiful Stripe Printed Porto Dinner Napkin Set.
