Creating a seamless transition between your interior and exterior spaces continues to spearhead backyard trends in 2018. Numerous companies now create outdoor furniture designed to look more like the kind you would use indoors, allowing your back porch to share the same level of comfort as your living room.
Rugs, ottomans, throw blankets and side tables are all in this year. So, feel free to create your ultimate feng shui right outside your back door. If you’ve already updated your outdoor space in 2017, now is an excellent time to further enhance its aesthetic.

Particularly, keep your eyes peeled for lanterns. You can find styles of gas or electric lanterns in this review by Lantern & Scroll.
