Less Is More

In a small outdoor space, less can definitely mean more. Even a few key choices of furniture can have a big impact when furnishing a small lounge area or patio. "Don't clutter small spaces with small objects. Less is more, as always. I only accessorize and furnish outdoor spaces with a few choice, properly scaled objects. This means easier maintenance too," says interior designer Matthew Lanphier. Image courtesy of MJ Lanphier Interior Design
