flowers near the entrance. This way you will feel nice aroma each time you leave or come
inside the house, which will create special tranquil impression for coming home and nice

with a drink in your hand. You will need comfortable furniture first of all, but you should
give a chance to the idea to install a ceiling fan. It will both add special looks and will be very
useful equipment for the hot evenings.

and you do not like it this, you can take them and paint them all one by one in terra-cotta
color. You can do the painting in any other color, it will be all good as long as they look
the same, but the terra-cotta color will create special connection and association with the ground.

covers, which will make one big ensemble from all these parts. Use bright and live colors,
stripes and any other patterns to give your façade catchy and positive look.
