Keeping it Cozy

Keep it cozy around the fire! Bring in a smaller fire pit or tabletop fire pit to stay warm and give the exceptional winter aesthetic without breaking the bank. Snuggle up by the fire and enjoy a steaming beverage. We don't like being cooped up all winter so make the most of your outdoor space even when there is a chill in the air. Design your patio into the picture - the perfect spot to enjoy nature's winter air even in the middle of the colder season.

This outdoor winter patio design is the epitome of woodland chic. We adore the simple yet elevated look of this design. They used more minimalist styling, without skimping on the cozy elements like Sunbrella water resistant throw pillows to make it warm without being overwhelming. The use of a more natural material on their ottoman poofs really warms up the design and adds a surprise element to catch the eye. Anything with unexpected texture is going to help with this in your space and create a more layered, cozy feel. The chic evergreen garlands and simple touches of pine are the perfect décor elements to finish of this lovely design.

This winter patio design by Halfway Wholeistic is an absolute winner in our eyes! We love the use of the cable knit throw and incorporating a beautiful mix of other soft elements to create this cozy vibe. This design is all about texture. Wool cable knit outdoor throw pillows, mixed with plaid, tassels, and other textures makes for a layered look that induces such a sense of warmth. Cozy up by the fire under that chunky throw and enjoy the night sky.
Crisp Like Snow

Clean and minimalistic, yet luxurious. This is a fairly new style we are seeing in more recent years. Proof that a few touches here and there can completely change your space. Recreate this look with custom cushions in Sunbrella fabric! Just by adding a fur throw, or furry throw pillows, will elevate this look to that coveted crisp winter aesthetic. Even throughout the colder months, keeping clean neutral tones while adding in some flair with greenery is what really makes this look the ultimate in sophisticated winter style.
This indoor/outdoor winter patio is perfection in our eyes. Fit snugly in an alcove off the library, this space shares a touch of whimsy and elegance. We agree that this is an ideal spot for the daybed swing. Have you seen our swing bed cushions? Take a nap by the fire, lounge around with a cocktail, or grab a book out of the library - no matter the choice, we love this set up. The old-world stone fireplace really elevates the space and ties in the cozy lodge aesthetic. A fan favorite all around.
