Outdoor Spaces

Lately I’ve had the urge to focus my attention on decorating our back deck. Whit and I bought our house about one month before we got married; and needless to say, my focus was not on our new home. Now that we have been homeowners for two years, and the wedding planning is behind us, things are finally starting to come together. Our home had been renovated before we moved in, and fortunately for us, there was little to do other than add a few of our own touches.

Our focus has mainly been on the inside, however recently we've (Whit) been working on sprucing up the landscaping. Now that our yard is shaping up, it seems only fitting to move on to the back deck. There are so many great outdoor pieces that I’m lusting over right now. I would love to create our own relaxing oasis that we can escape to whenever we want to pretend we are at a luxurious hotel. 

I love dining outside, especially when the weather is nice, and all I’m missing is the perfect set-up. We currently have a wooden table and chairs and an outdoor bar on our deck. However, I’m in the market for a more cozy set up, one more suitable for comfortably socializing or peacefully lounging with a book and an ice cold beverage. I'm envisioning a plush sectional couch, accented by colorful pillows, and a coffee table for resting cold beverages, all sitting on top of a neutral rug,  with a fun umbrella nearby for optional shade. Are you with me?

Below are some of my favorite pieces that I think would create the perfect outdoor space.  Now, if only we had a pool!


  1. Love the pieces you chose, especially all that teal!

  2. the pool float = how cool!

  3. that bar stool is so cute. and there are so many colors!
