Patio Parties Keep Summer Going.

Posted on August 30, 2013 by Miller and Smith Blog Team

Who says the fun of summer has to end at the stroke of midnight on Labor Day?

If you have a great patio, terrace or deck, forget what the calendar says and keep having those barbeques, cocktail parties and outdoor gatherings.

Miller & Smith is known for designing innovative outdoor living spaces that offer homeowners even more ways to relax, unwind and entertain.

In this post we’ll examine how to use furniture groupings, accessories and pops of color to turn your outdoor space into the perfect outdoor retreat.

On the deck of our Gramercy Park model at Maple lawn, we use warm summer colors and overstuffed cushions to provide a relaxed, fun outdoor atmosphere. It’s a vibe that inspires light conversations and everflowing sangria!


When coordinating you’re own space, consider bold, vibrant colors like we use here in our Greenwich model at One Loudoun. 


Kick back on some comfortable furniture! Why not treat your bottom and back to these thrones, and bring a beachy vibe to your outdoor space?



These “L shaped” seating arrangements are the outdoor equivalent of the sectional sofa. They’re a great way to seat lots of guests and provide endless comfort!





Pop of color? Pillow fights? Whatever the reason, you definitely need plenty of throw pillows to accent your seating and create just the right setting for kicking back and enjoying the summer.





We can only hold our margaritas for so long. Am I right? Attachable side tables are a creative idea to add to your patio.



And don’t forget those odds and ends that express your own personality and tie your outdoor space together.





From all of us at Miller & Smith, we hope you enjoy the rest of summer surrounded by friends, family and the perfect outdoor living space.
