Ideas for Any Outdoor Space
A ready-to-assemble Outdoor Living Today gazebo (#462351) provides a dramatic focal point. Layers of lighting create an inviting glow at night. Tiki torches (#120792), path lights (#30323), and spotlights (#475573) illuminate the exterior, while votive candles and an allen + roth™ outdoor pendant (#338779) brighten the interior. On the posts and railings of the Western red cedar gazebo, a solid-base stain (Olympic Elite in Flint) adds contrasting color and weather protection.
Plant a Perimeter
Containers create presence at an entrance. Ring an outdoor space, especially a structure, with massed plantings to blend the area into the landscape. Plants with white blooms and burgundy or variegated foliage stand out day or night.
A Glimmer of Light
For a flicker of warmth at night, accessorize sitting areas with tabletop ceramic lanterns (#606033, #606163, #606164).
Lay a Path
Set patio stones amid pea gravel. A groundcover creates an attractive path to the deck or structure.
Furnish Your Getaway
Anchor the gazebo interior, or any outdoor living area, with an allen + roth™ Pardini loveseat and coffee table set (#402116). Then add cushions (#605458), pillows (#249389, #605489), and a rug (#9416321S, atgstores.com).
One advantage of a detached gazebo is that the sheltering roof doesn’t block sunlight from coming through the windows of a house. At night, mixed lighting gives it the feel of a backyard getaway.
