Create a Cozy Summer Hangout with the Evanston Patio Look

We’re perched on the cusp of summer, so why not give your outdoor patio a stylish and cozy update? Make it the perfect place to sit and sip lemonade with friends and family while enjoying the warm weather and a cool breeze.

To create that perfect, personalized outdoor space, look no further than the Evanston Patio! Our designers at Touch of Class® have gathered the perfect blend of comfort, color, and style. Want to recreate the look pictured here in your own home? Simply click on the photo to shop the items!

Evanston Patio

The best place to start is with a comfortable patio furniture set with a wicker-woven design. This set has a durable, powder-coated aluminum frame that resists rust, is UV-resistant, and is designed to be used outdoors year round. If you’re looking for additional seating comfort and a pop of color, add a pair of reversible chair cushions that are mildew-, weather-, fade-, and stain-resistant.

Every decorated space needs intrigue, dimension, and personalization, and wall décor is the perfect way to bring in all three. Light up late evenings with scrolling wall lanterns that can be used for design year round. Add a dash of personality with the scrolls and bronze hues of monogram wall art that’s UV-, weather-, and tarnish-resistant. This JasonW Studios® wall art is made in the USA and can be displayed outdoors year round.

You can even add style to your door! Hang summer on your door with sun-kissed yellow and white flowers on a floral wreath. Hang the wreath on a multilayered and two-toned hanger from JasonW Studios®. Made in the USA with a UV-, weather-, and tarnish-resistant design, this scrolling wreath hanger can be personalized with the first letter of your name.

Finish off the intimate atmosphere with water-repellant and fade-resistant tab-top curtain panels and elements of nature. Perch plants and statues atop column display pedestals that bring back the classic style of a bygone era and add another layer of intrigue to your newly-refurbished outdoor space.

Decorating Ideas: Fabulous Flower Wall Art Collages

Let a flower garden bloom on your wall! A floral wall art collage is perfect for large wall spaces like the area above the sofa, and the look is perfectly customizable. “Collect” a bouquet of metal wall art blossoms in your favorite hues, and display them however you like on a wall.

In both looks below, we chose a 26” dia. mirrored flower as the focal point, then arranged other metal flowers around it. For a little extra glamour, we selected a couple flowers with gem accents.

The first look is perfect for spring; a pretty array of pinks, purples, and blues are softly complemented by ivory and aqua. An openwork console table, stained glass lamp, petal pillow, and floral canvas complete the lovely arrangement.

The second look is wonderfully transitional, reflecting both Old World and modern styles. Metallic tones blend beautifully with cream capiz shell. We placed a storage cabinet and geometric candleholders beneath the wall art display, but the decorating possibilities are endless.

Elegant Entryway Decorating Ideas

The interior entryway of your home receives plenty of foot traffic, but have you given it appropriate decorating attention? If the entryway is looking more “eh” than “elegant,” these decorating ideas will be just what you need.

Feel free to customize this look to your heart’s content using new furnishings and those you already own; use your favorite table lamp pair to light up the space, swap out the wall grille for another striking wall decor piece, or move a neglected upholstered chair from a shadowy corner to a prime spot beside the console table. Click here to view all the items that we used.

How did we create this look?

We chose home furnishings with the common thread of elegant traditional style. We balanced heavier or darker pieces with luminous or light colors like gold, cream, alabaster, and ivory.

  • Place a console table against the entryway wall. Make sure it is wide and sturdy enough to support two table lamps. An open, airy design will keep this area from looking stuffy.
  • Hang two wall mirror panels an equal distance apart from the sides of the console table.
  • Display a vertical metal wall grille between the two mirrors, directly above the center of the console.
  • Position an upholstered accent chair to one side of the console table.
  • Top the console table with traditional table lamps and an additional accent if you like (such as a tabletop photo frame or covered bowl).
  • Place an Aubusson-style rug runner in front of the console table and chair.
