Now is the time to plan your outdoor spaces to get the most use out of them this season. We can’t wait for summer! What we love most is spending time in our outdoor spaces: the porch, the backyard, and the garden. But if you don’t order outdoor furniture now, you may miss out! Outdoor furniture sells out quickly!
We bought outdoor furniture from Target that we used at our former home in New Canaan, and we are starting our fourth summer at this house by the water. You don’t have to spend a fortune to have beautiful, long-lasting outdoor furniture.
Although, if money is not an issue, Serena & Lily has gorgeous outdoor furniture for any style. You can see more in this recent post.
We don’t even bring our outdoor furniture inside or cover it for the winter. We remove the cushions and store them for the winter from the backyard furniture, but on the porch, we leave them as is. In the winter, there are days when you can enjoy a brief moment in the sun out on the porch. Those days are few and far between, but I never want to miss out when they happen.
We mixed a few side tables, lots of outdoor pillows, beach house blankets from Serena & Lily, and planter pots from Terrain for a pulled-together look for all our outdoor spaces.
Mixing it up is the best way to achieve beautiful outdoor spaces. Avoid “sets” and choose a color theme. We used black, gray, white, and rattan. Some items are expensive, like the Montecito pillow covers. We have used them consistently for five years, and they are still like new after a wash a few times a year!
The patio furniture from Target is also holding up great and was very reasonably priced. It’s all about balance and mixing it up.
The Potting Bench for Gardening & Serving Drinks
We plan to stain the potting bench black to use as both a potting bench and a drink station when entertaining.
