There’s No Place Like Home: 5 Ways to Elevate Your Outdoor Space
Here at Bonick, we hold a fondness for the understated finer things in life. We value carefully curated art collections, artisanal furnishings with fashionable flair, intimate showcases by independent music artists, and food cooked by the finest chefs. During these past few months, we’ve experienced twinges of disappointment as our calendar alerts continually remind us that we’re missing art openings, live music, fundraising events, architectural tours, and more. However, it’s during these empty spaces in time when we refocus on what’s most important: home. From renewing our family relations, reevaluating our outdoor spaces, and rekindling relationships recently separated by sheltering in place, there’s no place like home. Since it’s safest to spend time outside, in order to really relish family and friends, we need our backyards to be at their best. Read on for ways to make your home’s outdoor space more enjoyable and suitable for entertaining.
