When designing an outdoor space, the magic seems to appear in the final details. The accessories added to a home clearly communicate its personality—a vintage light fixture, a hand-painted mailbox, or artsy address numbers. Each adornment gives the exterior individuality.
Here are a few accessories and design tips that can simply and successfully highlight your home’s superior siding.
Let there be light. Light fixtures can help to set the mood in your outdoor space. Whether you opt for welcoming Italian string lights on your patio, or formal sconces framing your front door, think about the feeling you’re trying to create in your home’s outdoor space. You can inject personality into your exterior by honing in on your own style. Shopping for a one-of-a-kind vintage pendant light or finding a farmhouse wall light painted in a bold color for a pop against your siding, are great ways to add flair to your home without stealing focus.
Create outdoor sitting areas. Take a look at your home’s outdoor area and think about the different sitting spaces you’d like to create (lounging, dining, bar). You’ll want each of them to have a consistent and flowing look. To accomplish this, you can mix and match weatherproof furniture, but use just a few of your favorite colors on throw pillows, blankets and accessories to tie everything together.
Warm up the space. There’s nothing more welcoming than the warmth of a fire, people just seem to flock around it. Whether it’s a built-in fireplace, installed right into your home’s exterior wall (surrounded by James Hardie® fire-resistant siding) or a fire pit in the yard, natural fire elements can create immediate and irresistible ambiance.
Let your siding shine as you show off your style with home accessories that make you want to spend more time soaking up the outdoors in a space that’s completely you.
