Hopefully we can inspire your patio refresh with what we have to share below. Our own patios are by no means in peak condition; so have no fear, let’s conquer this makeover together.
The Starter Piece
Patio furniture (like all furniture) doesn’t come cheap, but it’s an investment for a lifetime when you aim for quality. TEAK + TABLE OUTDOOR LIVING has a dreamy selection and caters to every home style. This 4-piece set has us reminiscing to those long summer afternoons on the lake, only Grandma and Grandpa’s patio set smelled a tad musty. The four different color varieties allow you to personalize your space while the comfort level may turn into a problem: don’t be surprised if you find guests snoozing during one of your backyard BBQ’s!
|COASTAL COLLECTION | $3,206.00|
Once the main pieces are in place the fun begins: decorations! Time to turn that backyard into your own oasis filled with plants, pillows, rugs and other accessories. Who needs to go on a vacation when you can have your own fantastic staycation?
|DUET INDOOR/OUTDOOR RUG | $199.99 – $549.99|
Adding a rug beneath outdoor furniture can make it feel like it’s a room and part of the home. Finding the perfect rug for your patio, however, can be difficult; we advise finding a rug that accentuates the pieces. In our case the patio furniture was striped, so going with a neutral rug that includes a faded pattern was key in order to avoid too many patterns. WEST ELM OUTLET is our go-to for purchases like these.
|FIDDLE LEAF PLANT | $79.99|
Whether you’ve got a green thumb or can’t manage to keep plants around longer than a week, adding plants to your patio is key to creating a homey feel. Having plants specific to the patio won’t be overkill even if you already have an ambitious garden further into your yard. More specifically, oversized plants and trees add a lot and will get your patio in retreat mode. This one from T.J.MAXX isn’t real and therefore is ideal for the emerging and/or busy plant enthusiast.
|MALTA LATERN | $27.00 – $249.00|
These stylish POTTERY BARN OUTLET lanterns are a great addition to any space. Place them on your table for height, on the ground, or even hang them! Whichever you choose, placing a real candle in them to light up at the opportune moment will generate an ambience people won’t forget.
|SOLID BASKETWEAVE THROW | $63.00|
Has it suddenly dropped 20 degrees but you still don’t want to leave that well-designed patio for the night? Blankets add comfort with a pinch of color to any room, even in those outdoor spaces. Put one of these WEST ELM OUTLETS throws over a couch or arm chair for guests, and they may never leave. On second thought, maybe hold off on the blanket handouts until it’s an absolute dire need.
When you can live comfortably in your outdoor space, life just seems to be so much better. Patios add an unmatched element of fun to your home for all hours of summer so you can cherish margaritas in the day, grilling in the afternoon, and bonfires with s’mores at night. Next thing you know this will be your friends’ main hang all summer long.
