  1. Outdoor rug – although an outdoor rug may seem like a waste of money, I assure you it creates an inviting space that’s well defined and cozy. Look for fibers such as jute, or recycled plastic polyester – they tend to be most weather resistant and inexpensive.

  1. Floor seating – the cutest and most versatile of all furniture; these can be added or take away, be used for function or just décor. My current favorite is the Moroccan pouf!

  1. Add privacy – there’s a few ways to do this, you can either add a vertical herb garden, sea grass growing tall, or simply add curtains/retractable canopy for a little more privacy and a more intimate space even if it’s out in the open.
