Bring the Cozy Vibes to Your Backyard With These 5 Ideas Under $100

 1. Scandi-inspired seating

No one knows how to ring in the colder seasons in style quite like the Scandinavians, and this Scandi-inspired seating from illustrates the point perfectly.

We love the minimalist vibe of the seating area made from recycled wooden pallets and faux fur rugs.

“It’s a relatively cheap look to re-create and creates an ideal seating arrangement for a casual meal,” says design and remodeling expert Ben Kuhl, of Shelf Expression. “Use throw pillows and candles to enhance the look.”

2. Garden-path fairy lights

Another easy way to bring a bit of soothing ambiance to your outdoor space is to line your backyard with string lights, like the ones seen here from @camilliabloomsbury.

“If you have a developed flower garden, this might be just the thing,” says Kuhl. “These fairy lights add romantic mood lighting to your outdoor space—making it perfect for a picnic date with your partner. Use a shepherd’s hook to get the right height for your lights.”


3. Patio mirror

Mirrors are an amazing addition to small indoor spaces—and as we can see in this photo from @leopard_print_stairs, the same can be said for their magic effect on outdoor spaces, too.

“Mirrors will fabricate the illusion of extra space, making them perfect for small garden areas,” says interior designer David Lee, of Neutypechic. “Placing a mirror on your patio will create an indoor-outdoor feel and give it a homey vibe.”

4. Bamboo canopy

One of the most inexpensive and effective ways to create some shade from the weather—and cultivate that tucked-in feeling—is with a bamboo canopy like this one from @sallydoessassy.

“If you live in a city where it’s usually hot and sunny, add a bamboo canopy in your backyard,” says Lee.

This overhead cover can also come in handy during a light sprinkle of rain.

Get the look: Grab a few rolls of bamboo or reed fencing to create your perfect vintage canopy.

5. Hanging lanterns

Improving the lighting in your outdoor space while also making it look high-end is as simple as hanging some trendy lanterns like these ones from @fincadelicaibiza.

“Low-hanging lanterns are coming back into fashion, and they will give your patio or backyard an Ibiza-inspired vibe, so you feel like you’re chilling somewhere more exotic than your own backyard,” says Lee.
