Decorating Your Garden

Tips for your garden decor.  

It's Summer and gardens are blooming everywhere. Now is a great time to look at your outdoor living area and make any changes you might desire. A few fun ways to decide on decor for your outdoor living space is to look "inside." 

If your home is your favorite color, and it makes you feel comfortable each time you venture indoors, then use the same color scheme with a bit of a variance to allow for the precious and beautiful colors of the season. If blue is your favorite, use blue in paint or material and carry that theme to the outdoors. 

Also, what is your personal style? Do your love Early American or modern? Do you swoon over antique finds or would you rather see the glow of wood or the shine of metal and glass? Maybe brass or pewter is to your liking. Whatever your personal favorites might be, use them in your garden area. 

We are careful about wonderful scents in our home. Well, Mother Nature is a willing helper in this category. Plant lavender plants around rose bushes for a bouquet of fragrance or under a bedroom window. The delicate scents will relax you and what a wonderful way to start the day. 

You don't have to invest a lot of money in your outdoor decor. Going to garage, tag, or resale shops is not only fun, but a great way to buy at much lower prices. Farm auctions are another market for some true treasures. Look for garden benches, old-fashioned tools with weathered wood handles, watering cans, wooden buckets, old seed packets to frame, garden fresh fabric and linens, and old gardening books and magazines. You'll find real wisdom from seasoned gardeners as well as great pictures and ideas for surrounding yourself with "home" just by opening the door to your garden. ENJOY!
