This summer, Studio 773 is getting into the swing of the season with its very first collections of outdoor decorative pillows. Each piece has been specially treated to be weatherproof and UV and mildew-resistant, perfect for jazzing up balconies and patios from New York City to Venice Beach. And to celebrate, here are some of our top tips for making your outdoor space the envy of the neighborhood... with some of the new collections thrown in!
1. Let your accents do the talking
We love a good decorative pillow, of course, but with good reason: whether your look is minimal, vibrant, or ever-changing, they pack a good punch. Invest in lasting, neutral outdoor furniture and let your accents do the rest: pillows, lighting, and decorative pieces can be switched out as trends change. These hand-painted pieces from Coral Reef instantly liven up a minimal backdrop.
2. Don't forget about texture
Whether it's a weathered wooden table paired with sleek surfaces or a jeweled and appliquéd decorative pillow - such as these two from Urban Balcony - a mix of textures goes a long way to adding depth to a space. As you head outdoors, add lush plants and florals for yet another dimension.
3. You get what you decorate for
It's so easy to get carried away with redecorating, sometimes you just have to step back and remember what the end goal is.
Do you want to host lively garden parties? Then remember to arrange your furniture in a way that encourages socializing, like with this corner bench featuring the Jardin collection. Do you need somewhere to get a bit of quiet inspiration? Then maybe a cosy armchair surrounded by fragrant flowers is more in order.
4. Decorate for your space
Every home - and garden - is unique, and the same should go for our decor. Take advantage of any interesting features, nooks, or crannies that your home has to offer - and that especially goes for compact urban spaces. This sophisticated window seat, featuring the Shalimar Garden collection, makes a small space feel elegant and luxurious.
