How to Freshen Up Your Outdoor Space | Colorful Flowers + Potted Plants
As soon as shiny weather arrives I make my way to Home Depot or Target to shop for colorful flowering plants. In my backyard I have two large terra cotta planters right outside a set of French doors to the backyard. I pull out my gardening gloves, a bit of new planting soil and refresh those planters with vibrant green plants that have sweet pops of color. At the same time I also add smaller potted plants on side tables in outdoor conversation areas. I recommend adding small potted plants in groups of three with different size variations and different types of planters. This is a quick and easy way to freshen up your outdoor space without breaking the bank.

How to Freshen Up Your Outdoor Space | Outdoor Rug
This is one of my favorite ways to freshen up an outdoor space! At my oceanfront condo in Mexico there are two balconies. One has lounge chairs with a matching umbrella and side table, and the other has an outdoor conversation patio furniture set with umbrella and BBQ. Before I arrive our wonderful maintenance couple freshens everything up. They lay out a colorful outdoor rug and add colorful accent pillows on the outdoor furniture. I usually buy these outdoor home decor items at either Crate and Barrel or Amazon and take them down in a check-in suitcase. I love shopping and discovering beautiful items online! Other home decor items I find right there in Mexico at outdoor markets and at Liverpool (similar to Macy’s) in the Galeria Vallarta Mall.
