THINK BEYOND DECOR
Creating a modern environment means more than decor. Save energy by turning off inside lights when you’re outside, and fill your torches and table torches with BiteFighter® Clean Burn ™ Torch Fuel. It has a plant-based formula that produces less soot and smoke than petroleum-based torch fuels and designed to offer proven mosquito repellency.
USE A SOFT COLOR PALATE
Keep the colors in your backyard light and airy. The goal of this style is comfort and ease. Instead of busy, bright colors, aim to keep the palate neutral and calming — think whites, pinks and earth tones.
Elaborate meals? No, thank you. Take a vacation from your kitchen and try grilled pizza, tacos with a twist or food on sticks. Food on a stick just tastes better, ask around! At the end of the day, make it easy. When in doubt, cook dinner indoors and simply take your plates outside. Trust us, you won’t be sorry.
CHOOSE NATURAL LIGHT
With all due respect to Thomas Edison, sometimes you want to give harsh electric lights a rest. There’s a dark-sky movement in heavily populated areas to try to reduce light pollution. Illuminating your patio with the warm glow of natural flames lets you enjoy the brilliance of the night sky, plus stargazers everywhere will thank you.
