Your house is defined by its interior as well as its exterior. Most people focus on decorating the inside of their homes and forget about their backyard. In fact, paying attention to your backyard is as important as decorating the inside of your home.
The only essential element in an amazing outdoor space is cozy seating, but good lighting and decor are also very important. Bonus points include a fireplace, firepit, or water feature, and of course a great view!
