Because more and more of us are staying in our homes and making improvements rather than moving, you can afford to put your personal stamp on your home. For that reason, be brave and embrace colour.

Be bold and you’ll be thrilled by the results.

One of the mainstays for outdoor furniture, wicker, remains a smart, economical option.

The beauty of an Asian-style outdoor space is its clean simplicity, elegance and natural tranquility.

"The first style is elegant and abstract, and the second is naturally-inspired."
A traditional English garden is known for an abundant array of flowers surrounding a large green lawn, with romantic walkways and hideaway seating areas. The look is beautiful for traditional and historic home styles.Furniture for an English garden is definitely traditional, Voyles says. "For this style I`d look to hardwoods and teak to get that `antique bench in England` look." You `ll need cushions and pillows made with outdoor fabric to keep rustic seating comfortable, Bartron says. "English style is often floral and chintzy, but you don`t want the patio furniture to compete too much with the flower garden. Keep the patterns simple, such as a plain pastel fabric accented with a floral pillow," she advises.
A permanent outdoor fireplace can add a real hint of luxury to your backyard or deck. Built-in or permanent outdoor fireplaces tend to require more extensive construction and are therefore generally more expensive than freestanding outdoor fireplaces. Common materials for freestanding or built-in outdoor fireplaces are stone, stucco, tile and brick. You`ll have plenty of designs to choose from, and matching your backyard or deck`s overall design shouldn`t be a problem. Outdoor fireplaces should always be located away from any potentially flammable items like trees or shrubs, and you should always use a spark guard and flame-resistant fire mat when your fireplace is in use. Also, be sure to check with your local fire department regarding their outdoor fire codes before installing your outdoor fireplace.
