I hope you’ll join me as I ponder some of my favorite things about summer! In no particular order: popsicles, hikes, beach time, ice cream cones, beautiful sunsets, bike riding, vitamin d (for some of us on the rainy west coast we find ourselves pretty much sun-drunk on a sunny day), and wait for it – patio time! While I could easily write a post about any of the wonderful things listed above I’ll save those for another time, and instead focus on patios and patio decoration.
I received an email from the lovely ladies at Gallant & Jones sharing their gorgeous deck chairs and I knew I had to post about them. From there, I thought we could look at patios more generally too!
I’ll confess I don’t have a patio. Well we do but it’s about 5 feet by 4 feet and rarely gets sun, so some of this post is just me daydreaming about the future. It’s fun to imagine just what our futures might look like, even as it relates to how we’ll decorate. The older I get the more I realize that what’s most important for me when it comes to decorating and entertaining.
First and foremost I want our future patio to be cozy, bright and inviting. So that means some deck chairs like the ones from Gallant and Jones, some candles like the ones above from Silk n Lights Designs to ward off bugs, and some cute cushions – I love these monogrammed ones from Tater Babies. If we truly want to get lux – it’d be nice to have some heat lamps, a sweet little table with seating for guests, and if we’re dreaming here – I’ll take a gazebo and a little man-made lake too.
I’d love to hear your dreams for your perfect patio – what you would include, and how you would accessorize?
