You know my mantra...'start with the art' (if you can!) when designing your space. If you have a piece of art that you love, trust me, the design of the space will come together!Read More
Have you ever wondered how to curate a visually appealing grouping of art on a wall? It's not as hard as you think! I recently did a little makeover on our guest room and wanted to include some of the art that I've collected in recent years. I'm going to share some of my trade secrets with you in hopes that you are inspired to create a pretty gallery wall in your home.Read More
Summer is here and our outdoor entertaining has begun! We recently had all of our outdoor cushions reupholstered in bold outdoor fabrics by Thibaut....and I'm so excited to share the photos with you!Read More
Are you ready for summer? I AM! It feels like Northern California has had an extended cold Spring, but this weekend, it finally hit some hot summer-like temps! Woo hoo!
Summer is all about outdoor entertaining, enjoying the fresh air, being with friends and family. We love to entertain in our back yard (watch for an update soon on my newly upholstered outdoor furniture!) - and there's nothing better than dining al fresco!
Today I'm sharing four foolproof tips for making your outdoor dining experience memorable!
When the sun goes down and you are enjoying the evening, it's great to have a little mood lighting that is not too bright. I love these outdoor lights from Target. They are not a huge investment and will bring just the right amount of ambience to your party!
2. A Beautiful Outdoor Table
Don't skimp on your outdoor furniture. Outdoor furniture needs to stand the test of time and weather, but also should provide the look of another 'room' in your home (albeit outside). Consider your outdoor space as an extension of your interiors. Invest in beautiful pieces! This table from Serena & Lily is stunning. You could even use it indoors! :)
3. Comfortable and Luxurious Seating
Outdoor dining chairs have come a long way in the past few years. This artful and comfortable dining chair can add some texture and visual interest to your outdoor dining area. Make the outdoor dining space unique!
4. Add Pretty Decorative Accessories
Decorative accessories always make a space. Ground your outdoor area with an outdoor rug. An outdoor area rug always amps up the WOW! factor. Add colorful pillows and pretty serving pieces (love these salad tongs by Bridgette Thornton, available at Anthropologie!). Layer in stylish planters and candle holders to enhance your outdoor dining area.
