1. Work on your front door

A bold front door or entrance hue is a great (and easy) way to give your dwelling a touch of class and drama. Take some cues from this example and opt for something daring and exciting!

3. Landscape your garden

Your garden definitely needs to be maintained, and should be correctly landscaped to reflect your desired ambience and atmosphere. 

4. Add an inviting ambience

An inviting ambience might mean some chairs for guests, lighting, or an array of plants, or all of the above! Look at what you can add or remove to enhance the overall aura and exterior aesthetic of your space, paying attention to the specifics, while still looking at the bigger picture. 

5. Boost the space with a flower garden

A flower garden is a great way to increase your gardening skills, while sprucing up the outside of your home. A flowerbed can be created in the front of your home, as seen above, or in your back garden to be enjoyed by friends and guests. 

6. Add a relaxation station

Need to zone out or relax? The outside of your home can be spruced up easily to accommodate your needs. Simply add a set of comfy furniture, some floor cushions and a nice bottle of wine!

7. Perhaps hang a hammock?

To offer your outdoor space a sense of true luxury, you can always add a hammock or hanging chair. This exterior area is perfectly adorned, and looks beautifully relaxing, while still sophisticated.

8. Add colour to your entrance
