Summer Style Outdoors

Our home has been a constant work in progress and our outdoor space may possibly be the worst.  Growing up a landscapers daughter I became an avid lover of gardening and decorating outdoor spaces. So, as you can imagine, my backyard is killing me in the condition it's in. Until we decide what the final plan is, I've been trying to work with what I have. It also gives me more time to think up design ideas since I go back and forth between all of these. I created a couple fun outdoor style themes to update your summer outdoor style. Plus there are some AHH-MAZING sales going on right now for Memorial Weekend. 

If I lived in the south my backyard would totally look like this. Just don't tell my

Probably one of my favorites: Mixing grey washed materials, natural elements and navy. Most likely the route I'm going this year since I'm stuck with an a patterned fabric on our current furniture. Which by the way has stood the test of time. My husband wanted to sell when we moved the first time because we went from a 30 foot deck to a 5ft one. I won that battle and it has made it through 2 moves, survived NE winters and still no signs of wear. It's from Home Depot. So if you're in the market for new patio furniture, I'd recommend checking out Home Depot.


This is what I'd like my backyard to look like. Palm trees and all. Instead, I have pine trees as tall as palm trees and when they fall they take away our vacation budget 👎🏼

My bro has the ultimate modern backyard.  One of these days I'm going to make him (because I'm his big sis and that's what we do) give me a video tour that I can share with you because his space is so amazing. I am loving these chairs from Target!
