Los Angeles is supposed to be a concrete jungle (and it actually is) but have you ever noticed the fact that every single place has an incredible looking garden? In this guide, let’s try and break down how to optimise your space, your furniture and your accessories to get your place to the next level.
Small Place > Big Space
If there’s one thing that LA taught me is that you don’t need a big space to look big: for example, imagine that you have a small apartment but with a great taste for furniture, lighting and accessories. That will look at least 10 times better than a big, unfurnished garden, with no taste in design whatsoever. In order to do it, planning the whole space is vital and will, of course, save you a lot of time while actually building the whole space. Keep this in mind!
A Big Budget Is Not Necessary
Especially when talking about furniture and accessories, many people think that a big budget is required in order to buy quality pieces, but in the end is not true at all. Some cane chairs are the best starting options: cheap and stylish, they will look great in a small outdoor space, especially if you are planning on giving it that “old style” and “vintage” look. Wicker furniture works, too. Once again, there are many DIY solutions you can follow for your garden, so don’t waste your money on high-end furniture and such, and try to be stylish!
Especially during summer, you will most likely be spending a lot of time outside and chances that you will be throwing a party in your garden are pretty high. Therefore, it’s super important to have quality lighting at yours, since no one wants to go to a party that shuts down when the sun goes away! A touch of style would be combining LED lights with some glass accessories around your space, giving it a bit of a futuristic design.
A garden, in the end, should be your outdoor living room. It should tell who you are and what your hobbies are and, in the end, it should be a proper space in which you are truly enjoying yourself. Treat it right and follow these guidelines and your friends won’t ever leave it, whether if it’s just for a couple of drinks or for a proper party.
