We’re here to give you some designer pointers, so you can perfect the “All White” room that is oh-so-popular right now. It is so light and fresh; you can only feel good in it.

Use it floor-to-ceiling with mirrors everywhere. Mirrors can make any room look larger, but especially when everything is white.

Add a few feature colors.

Add some colors that will stand out against the crisp white background. Splashing some color in a design will give it a little style and make it different.

Match white with natural hardwood flooring.

The hardwood floor mixes well because it breaks it up, yet it still has the same effect. This trick also adds some natural texture, which gives it a fresher feel.

Add texture.

Get creative with the textures. You want to keep in mind though that you are looking for a clean airy finish.

Use all white in the bathroom and it will increase the spa feeling. You are sure to feel relaxed. Keep in mind that fluffy towels are essential in a spa bathroom.

This is a huge trend, and you should jump into it. It is sure to make you feel nice, calm, and most of all, relaxed. What better way to add summer freshness to your home?

If your flooring is similar to the one in the picture, no need to put a rug under the table! The flooring has enough style by itself. You can use a table that you already have or buy a new one that will fit in the space comfortably. Then you can buy some outdoor pillows, color or no color, for the sitting area.

If you can, it’d be nice to incorporate light curtains, as shown in the picture below, for both decorative and privacy purposes. Lights must be added for a final touch of pizazz as well! You can choose any hanging lights and place them to drape above your seating area or whatever type of lights you would like really. Your patio is a very versatile space that should show off a bit of your personality. Now, you have designed the ultimate patio to help you enjoy those late summer meals!

     Why not make your own day bed to lounge on this season!? There’s no reason to buy expensive outdoor furniture when you can make it yourself. There are countless wood plank projects to try, but you have to start with this one! By using pallets, you can create a modern and chic patio day bed all on your own. To begin this project, you’ll need a lot of wooden planks and screws to make the foundation of the bed, which can be purchased at your local Home Depot. Once the bed is built, you’ll need a mattress to place on top. The photo below used a folding foam mattress from a folding guest bed. Then, you can paint the wood and style your bed however you please!

     For our last idea, you can simply add some colorful paint to your existing furinture. Whether you have plastic chairs, or wooden tables, a little bit of pretty paint won’t hurt! This project is perfect for any patio, but start by figuring out which items of furniture can be safely painted without ruining the material. Then, you can select your favorite summer paint colors and get to work! For a final touch, you can throw in some patterened pillows like the ones shown in the picture below to top off your seating area. You now have a vibrant, summery patio to show off this season!
