As the season begins to change, we find ourselves spending more and more time outside.
The time to unwrap the outdoor furniture is upon us. Windows and pools begin to open up, as more people creep out of their winter hideaways. As the weather heats up and the spring-cleaning urge appears, you may feel inclined to spend your evenings on a porch, nestled under a warm blanket, sipping a delicious Hotel Collection Wine, and catching up on a good book.
Discover: 6 Best Scents for Spring Cleaning
The biggest shift we’ve seen come out of the wake of the pandemic in the last couple of years is this gravitational pull towards nature. As we all turned inwards and became more homebound, our affinity for nature was amplified. We saw an influx in online searches for products that amplify the 5 senses (eyesight, hearing, taste, touch, and smell) including skincare, plants, and home scenting technology.
Spring 2022 is here and it’s time to freshen up your outdoor alcove with the latest design trends.
While our dream backyard setting would include an outdoor kitchen, shower, dining area, sitting area, pool, garden, tennis court, dog run, and more…. All you need is a shady section of your backyard to turn into a true hotel garden oasis.
This will look different for every person’s unique aesthetic, but perhaps it's time to invest in some quality outdoor furniture starting with a sofa, coffee table, and accent chair. Cushy outdoor ottomans, loungers, and porch swings reigned in 2021 and will continue to do so due to their comfortable and stylish appeal.
Spruce up the backyard porch or patio with classic, yet on-trend, outdoor décor. Embrace the elements of nature with furniture in hues of tan, brown, terracotta, green, and blue. Skip the polished wood and opt for organic materials and raw cuts of wood. Popular outdoor furniture materials include wicker or rattan, with waterproof and durable fabric cushions. Freshen up outdoor furniture with a few spritzes of a Room Spray.
Invest in a water feature, of some sort. Whether it be a pool, jacuzzi, or bubbling fountain, a water feature will drown out background noise to encourage a tranquil environment.
You can also liven up your outdoor space with live plants. A mixture of flowers, bushes, and trees will provide a dimensional landscape, guaranteed to keep your backyard hidden away from street view.
The plant trend kicking off this Spring season is native and pollinator-friendly plants; to attract bees, butterflies, and hummingbirds; as well as fruit and vegetable gardens. Use a mixture of perennials and annuals so your front or backyard can bloom all year long.
Find your shade with quality SPF-protection umbrellas and awnings. In the last few years, we have seen an increase in popularity in cantilever canopies and shade sails as they provide a more organic, modern touch to escaping harmful UV rays from the sun.
Cozify your nestling nook with the hottest element of them all: fire. As the sun sets, find your natural lighting with candles and a firepit. Our Deluxe Candles offer a strong scenting solution, featured in a 55oz. vessel with 4 flat-braided 100% cotton wicks.
Give yourself peace of mind and scent safely outdoors with our natural soy-wax blends and high-quality concentrated essential and therapeutic oil blends.
