One of my favorite outdoor decor pieces is bamboo water spouts. A beutifuly designed Japanese bamboo water fountain like a Shishi Odoshi (Deer Scarer) bamboo fountain creates zen-like back yard. A perfect compliment to a Shishi Odoshi fountain is a tea stand and fragrant Asian herbs.
The first step in your outdoor decorating project is to take a photo of the front of your house. This gives you the opportunity to look at your front yard objectively. Take the picture from the curb. Does your door stand out or blend in? Your front door is your focal point, so it should stand out. It directs your visitors and tells them where to enter your home. You can accent your front door by color and/or pottery flanking each side.
Outdoor lighting plans are a great investment and a wonderful way to decorate the exterior of your home. You can use accent lighting, illuminate walkways and add carriage lights around doorways. Outdoor lights come in a variety of styles to complement your home's décor.
There is a difference in decorating your outdoor space compared to your indoor or interior living space.
In this society we will be more mobile and outgoing then ever before. We naturally do more night time travel, shopping, visiting and entertaining than in any other time. A demand for each one of us to feel safe and secure during this dark time adventure is very important. For example, you want your guests, friends and family to feel safe and comfortable walking to and of our business, homes or offices. If you may be managing some night shopping it would be very important that the parking lots and the walk ways to be well lit to chase away the shadows.
Involving yourself in an outdoor decorating project is indeed very exciting as you want to end up making your front yard an amazing view for everyone.
