Although I am ecstatic that the warmer weather has finally arrived, it always provides a never ending to do list. Which right now I am fully embracing. Ask me again in a month and I…
Hi there friends! Lets talk house. Almost everyone has one, a room that hardly gets used. We seem to have our favorite spots in the house and whether out of routine, comfort and/or habit we…
Hi there friends! Even though my current view is of our snow covered lawn, outdoor living is on my mind. On my weekly trip to Target the other day I found myself lost in their “outdoor section.” I spent a good 40 minutes there, taking pictures, thinking, measuring. Leave it to Target to once again cloud my mind and leave me wanting a complete outdoor makeover. Whether you are looking for a few modern-rustic additions or for an entirely new look Target has something for everyone. And we all know how good their prices are, especially when you take into account their ability to be right on trend.
Hi there friends! Today is the day, I am finally sharing my new outdoor privacy screen!! It’s a nice blend of modern & rustic and it gives us a little more privacy from the road. We live on a corner lot across from the bay on a very small piece of property. So any additional coverage that makes it feel like a retreat away from the rest of the world is exactly what we need.
Hope you are having the best start to your spring! I can’t tell you how much I am enjoying the warmer days and being able to play outside later. Everything is beginning to bloom and that is inspiring me to start creating my outdoor spaces again. Each year I make a few modifications, I add some new things, do a few DIY’s and move pieces around to make it feel fresh and different than the years before. This year my first order of business is to change the seating on my front porch. It is an expansive space and I know it can handle a big piece so I decided it is time to add an outdoor sectional to the main area.
Hi there friends! My friend Shauna is hosting an Outdoor Extravaganza and this week is all about outdoor decorating & entertaining ideas. This is the time of year we are all eager to spruce up our outdoor spaces and make them peaceful and inviting once again, so I thought I would give some easy ways to bring personality to your backyard.
I am so excited to finally share what has had me so busy for the last few weeks! I have partnered with Joss and Main to bring you a patio makeover of sorts. Today is stop #7 of #10days10patios, if you are coming from Lucy’s blog, welcome! She did an incredible job with her patio, I wish she lived closer, we could sip some cold drinks and catch up for a while, her backyard is perfect for that now:). Be sure to hop on over to Country Living, they are hosting this amazing group of summer patio tours as well! If you would like to take this makeover tour start to finish you can head over to Ella Claire, our gracious host for this event.
I know you have been eagerly awaiting the details on my Pea Gravel Patio, this was not only easy but gave us the biggest bang for our buck. Thank you for all of your sweet comments about my Backyard Reveal, I have had SO many questions about this DIY project and hopefully I will answer them all in this post.
With the warmer weather here we all have our outdoor spaces on our minds, don’t we? I can’t tell you how many times I have been to Lowe’s this week, it’s nuts! I am that excited and eager to get my patio looking like THIS again. I know it will take some time, so I am just enjoying working outside again. This time of year makes me happy, I love going to the same garden center my mom went to many, many years ago, it’s small, local and they are so helpful. The time there is peaceful, carefully selecting the organic herbs and vegetables I will grow this year and making sure I learn from the mistakes I made last year, gardening has such a learning curve, can anyone relate? Anyways, my plan this year is to update my wicker patio chairs, they are vintage and although I still like them I need a change. Since I have been looking for a while I thought I would share my top 12 outdoor dining chairs, ranging from high to low, so there are options for everyone.
A few weeks ago I revealed my pea gravel patio & since then I have had a lot of questions, which I will be answering when I post about how we actually did it. But before I dive into that I wanted to share some pretty pea gravel patios that inspired us to make the choice to create one in our backyard.
As promised I am sharing more sources and details from my Hamptons Inspired Backyard Reveal. I have had a ton of questions about my reclaimed wood letters on my freshly updated white farmhouse shed. I am excited to finally share this shop with you, it is called Plane & Saw and it’s on ETSY of course. ETSY has become a great resource for unique, one of a kind items that are hand crafted without the high designer price tag. In case you missed my backyard reveal you can click the image below….
Hi there friends! I have partnered with Lowe’s to bring you a backyard makeover inspired by the Hamptons. This reveal has been 5 years in the making, so I am beyond thrilled to be sharing it with you today! And what better time than the spring to share it, well almost:). When we first walked into our backyard, even though we were warned by our realtor we were a little shocked. It was small, really small, and to be honest it made me nervous. But…that quickly subsided as we walked through and saw the beautiful bay view and the rather large privet hedge. Sold, that was it and I have been plotting and planning this space ever…
