Level Up Your Outdoor Space

Beautify, cozy up, and inject personality into your outdoor spaces with these key picks from the FAME+ catalogue

by Ning Nuñez


A pocket garden or any outdoor space, like your balcony, patio, or veranda, is a pleasure and a privilege to have at home—especially in today’s erratic times. Your outdoor space serves as a respite from stress, a welcome distraction from your everyday routine, and even a safer venue for intimate gatherings.

Turn to the overlooked outdoor areas in your home—the porch you used to welcome guests in, the small balcony of your condo unit, the terrace where you spend time with your furry friends, or even the garage or outdoor play area that you might have already transformed into a garden. A new set of furniture or a couple of key statement pieces can turn these outdoor spaces into an oasis that you, your family, and guests will love spending time in.

On our list: outdoor decor to liven up your space, outdoor furniture that lets you wine and dine in style, kid-friendly accessories for the little ones, planters and vases in a variety of materials for your plant babies, and more.

 

PLANTERS / VASES

If you’ve cultivated a family of potted beauties by now, then you’ll need rows and rows of planters and vases. Switch things up and opt for a collection of pieces made of different materials—clay, pumice stones, and the like—to add character, a variety of textures, and visual interest to your plant collection.

 

ART AND DECOR

Who says art and decor are only for indoors? If made of the right material, art and decorative pieces can be added to your garden space, terrace, or small outdoor corner. These pieces—from abstract wall art to small stone statues—will add a dose of personality and style to your al fresco area and make for great conversation starters, too.

OUTDOOR DINING

The new “in” place to be is definitely the outdoors. Many of us have resorted to “dining out” at home to host family occasions like birthdays and other intimate celebrations. Consider these outdoor dining furniture as necessary additions to your outdoor area—for everyday enjoyment and for special occasions, as well.

FOR LOUNGING

In pandemic times, when the going gets tough, the tough go outdoors. It’s your immediate escape from the stress of working and being online a little too much. Invest in outdoor-friendly lounge chairs so you can unplug, relax, and connect with nature as you please.

Lighting is key in any space and it wouldn’t hurt to invest in fixtures that are both stylish and functional. From a wall sconce to a hanging lamp, here are a few light fixtures we’ve found that are made for adding ambience to your outdoor nooks.

STATEMENT PIECES

Inject fun and an element of surprise into your outdoor spaces with statement pieces that add whimsy, design, and a curiosity. Case in point: a concrete bowl, a monk-shaped stool, and a cloud-shaped basket. Even better, these pieces are functional, too.
