Frame the Fence

You see yard art-a-plenty in the great outdoors, but how often do you see fine art hanging in someone's backyard living space? A framed print hanging above your outdoor sofa will offer an unexpected touch of sophistication and beauty. While an actual painting may not be the best choice for permanent installation due to the harsh elements it will have to endure, you could still bring it out for special occasions. For everyday art that you can leave hanging, look for prints that are specifically made to live outdoors. Even a beautiful carpet with an intricate pattern can bring a colorful and artistic feel into an outdoor space.
