DIRECT WITHOUT USING A WORD
Soft flickering flames can be more than decorative. Use your torches to guide movement throughout your backyard. If you have walkways, line them to illuminate the steps and stones. If you have areas you want avoided, create a line of torches that suggests stopping there.
When going for a modern vibe, keep it simple and keep it clean. Don’t clutter your table or yard with too many elements. Look for clean lines and shapes, but don’t forget your own style. It’s your space, so it needs to feel inviting and comforting.
MULTIPLE ENTERTAINING AREAS IN A BIG SPACE
Regardless of size, it’s important to maximize the potential of your backyard entertaining space! Whether you plan to use it for outdoor entertaining or as a relaxing getaway right in your backyard, there are plenty of design options. People naturally congregate near light, so create lighting focal points in each entertaining space and the walkways between.
LOOK FOR NATURAL ELEMENTS
Opt to include lots of natural elements like wood, ceramic, fire and stone. These items might be simple but collected they pull together the intimate, easygoing feeling.
