Always think of the outdoor space as a continuation of the interior. Good lighting ensures that these spaces look inviting no matter what time it is! Where I can, I also try to always include some form of shade to allow for outdoor living during hot weather.

Sofas must be comfortable yet easy to move. Fabric choices are extremely important for weather resistance. I personally like modular outdoor furniture with treatable fabrics.
Try and select cheerful and natural accessories where you can. My three essential purchases would probably be, a pair of modular chairs, a fun piece ceramic coloured stool, and a nice outdoor lamp!
