We purchased a charming house last year right before the economy took a big dive. I was drawn to this particular house for several reasons, one being the back porch. This simple small outdoor space was calling my name and I could just see a porch swing, some great outdoor furniture and lots of conversation taking place. But there was still something missing. I planted my favorite perennials, filled pots with heat tolerant plants and hung some decorative iron pieces on the walls.
When I added an outdoor fountain, everything came together. A water feature adds the magic and brings a new flavor to your space. I found this to be an affordable way to really top off and complete my cozy outdoor space.
The downturn in the economy has forced me to look for ways to decorate for less. That’s not such a bad thing afterall.
