UPDATE YOUR OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE

WITH SUBTLE GLOBAL ACCENTS


Lately, you may have noticed that the “Global” look is on trend and popping up everywhere.  It’s often shown with natural products like straw or wood with pops of color and/or patterns.  Today I am going to share with you a few quick ways to update your outdoor living space without breaking the bank and also my go-to formula that will keep your new space updated for longer than just a season.

When it comes to decor, I like to use 1-2 colors and 1-2 neutrals. I personally love white, even though it is considered the “vanilla” of colors I feel that it is one of the few colors out there that can be chic, classic, beachy, I mean the list goes on and on.  Natural finishes are also considered to be a part of the color pallet which is why you should be choosing your outdoor furniture wisely.  Be sure to keep in mind whether or not the furniture is timeless and easy to care for.  One of my favorite outdoor pieces is this outdoor dining table.  We bought it at the end of summer last year and couldn’t be happier with it, I highly recommend! *Quick tip– there are tons of sales on outdoor furniture going on right now!

Normally black would be considered a neutral color, however, because I’ve chosen lighter neutrals for this look, it serves as the pop of color in my pallet.  I’ve incorporated the black into the space with accent pieces like outdoor pillows and rugs and also in the finish of the umbrella, lanterns and string lights. I bought these outdoor pillows in the beginning of spring and absolutely love them!  The pattern adds something interesting to the space and the to the eye while tying everything together.  I also love the idea of adding lanterns and string lights to an outdoor space, it automatically gives off a warm luxurious feel to really set the mood.  Below is the complete list of items I used for this outdoor makeover plus a few more items that I couldn’t fit in the graphic that would totally go great with this look.

| 1. STRIPED RUG | 2. STRING LIGHTS | 3. UMBRELLA | 4. DINING TABLE |

| 5. METAL CHAIRS | 6. STORAGE BASKET | 7. THROW PILLOW |

| 8. RAPHIS PLANT | 9. LANTERN | 10. PATIO LOUNGE SET |

  • Ok guys it’s “Friday night and I feel alright” 🎶 Name that song! Go! P.S. I’ll give you a little hint, it’s from the 90’s and it’s not by Michael Jordan.... Let’s see if you can guess 😏
  • This midi dress is “The Love of my Life” no really that’s what it’s called and it’s such a good staple. P.S. It now comes in mustard! 💛

Yesterday on the blog, I put a super simple DIY tutorial on framed greenery. These also make pretty gifts in case you need to pull together a last minute Mother’s Day present. Wishing y’all the best Sunday! 🌿❤️

  • Instagram would “succ” if it weren’t for you! Seriously guys, I mean it! I’m so thankful for you and your kind words, patience, and support! Thank you so much for following, liking, commenting, and interacting with my stories! Allowing me to get to know you as well as getting to know a little more about myself too if I’m honest! Thank you for being there, keeping me alive much like these succulents and helping me grow! Doing this is a learning process, but if it weren’t for you, I would have never found my true passion as a creator and for that I will forever be thankful! ❤️❤️❤️ .

  • I’ve been on a straw, raffia, and rattan binge here lately. I love the raw textures and natural colors. They also double as a pretty accessory lying around as home decor. What are your thoughts on this trend? 
Also, this cute jump suit was a steal under $30 and it comes in black!

  • Another lovely Farmer’s Market pic from this weekend! They have seriously upped their game on presentation and I really wanted that cool planter for my herbs! No I didn’t buy it (props only), but wouldn’t mind finding/buying one similar and stashing it in my office/craft room for 3 years before I actually put it to use... 😂 #vintagefinds #hoarder #guilty
