Enjoying the warm great outdoors is one of the things everyone desires most, but during the winter months, outdoor entertainment spaces tend to lose a bit of love. Usually this would be the cue to move indoors, but would you just spend the winter doing nothing? This winter is all about catching up with close friends and family outdoors. That means along with the holiday season and Christmas celebrations are getting closer. So we want this season to be the best time to up the ante on backyard, patio, and balcony.
The good news is, there are lots of ways you can create a cozy place for the winter. Inspired by Scandinavian style, even Scandinavians have been good at this for years. If you visit cafes or restaurants in Sweden, Denmark and Norway, you will find every chair in the outside area has been prepared with a feather blanket. And they don’t stop there. Sheepskins, outdoor rugs, string lights, lanterns, candles, and fire pits are must-haves for cozy al fresco nights.
Today we want to bring a little warmth and coziness to the outdoors, and if you happen to not be inside the mood, here are some ways to create the coziest outdoor space to get inspired!
What style is chosen for a cozy outdoor space?
Creating a comfortable outdoor space is not as easy as you might think. Sometimes unfriendly weather conditions make you really have to be extra careful when decorating outdoors. Make sure to choose comfortable furniture, add fire pits if necessary, and warm textiles to keep you comfortable. You can also make some changes with a bit of a rustic, wild, or forest feel. Rattan, wood, wicker furniture will be a great solution, and you can also add metal items as they are able to withstand all weather conditions. Try to keep your outdoor space natural to make it more comfortable: wooden elements, pinecones, spruce branches, and greenery will make the outdoors feel fresher.
How to decorate outdoor space for winter?
Being outside in the winter means that you really have to keep yourself as warm as possible. The best solution is a swinging fireplace, fire pit or moving fireplace which will create a warm and cozy atmosphere. Don’t forget to throw in textiles and furs, these decorations will make your outdoor space feel cosy, stylish, and of course warm to you. Chair wraps and covers are perfect for the outdoors, and an alternative is knit covers. Don’t forget to throw in some holiday decorations like fir trees, pinecones and greenery because we all look forward to the winter holidays.
