Outdoor Decorating Ideas

The Martha Stewart Show, March 2011

Spring is in the air: The sun is getting stronger, and the first flowers of the season are beginning to bloom -- all of which means it's the perfect time to get your outdoor space ready for warm-weather entertaining.

Patio Furniture
By definition, patio furniture is exposed to the elements on a regular basis. Protect your patio from inclement weather by selecting items that are rust-free and use only weather-resistant fabrics. Elegant, neutral colors go well in any setting and won't compete with bright flowers and other outdoor accent materials.

Try: Martha Stewart Living Augusta, Miramar II, and Solana Bay collection patio sets

Area Rugs
Weather-resistant area rugs complete the look of any outdoor space, big or small. Look for mold-resistant materials, such as polypropylene, that can be cleaned easily with a garden hose.

Try: Martha Stewart Living Swirling Garden and Mallorca all-weather area rugs; Martha Stewart Living Classic Border outdoor rug, available in The Home Depot stores

    I purchased the Augusta collection patio furniture but can not get support from the manufacturer home casual.net I own the patio table, 3 piece bar set, 4 piece chat set and 2 lounge chairs. Some of my pieces arrived damaged and I need replacements. Can you help? I had been trying to get this through Home Depot customer service but the replacements also arrived damaged.
