I’m passionate about spending lots of time in our patio! Coming from an island where outdoor living is a lifestyle has made me take a special interest when setting my own al-fresco area here in Miami. Furniture and decor accessories play an important role when decorating outside. Finding colorful mix-and-match affordable outdoor patio pieces helped me in creating this tropical inspired sitting area.
While trends may come and go, choosing some basic pieces that will keep looking great no matter the year is a key. A while back we decided to used pavers to cover an area of our patio where it never grew grass. For this space I have chosen the elegant Better Homes & Gardens Cawood Place 4-Piece Conversation Set. I love the simple lines of this set and how well the color of the wood blends so well with the surroundings. The simple design of this pieces makes this set ideal for years to come.
Add a punch of color
Spring and summer seasons bring the best in nature. And while the colors in this area are amazing, I brought in a little bit more into the mix. Adding the Better Homes & Gardens Sausalito Floral Toss Pillows not only gave a punch of color to this area, but also added a whimsical detail into the decor. I also included in this area a set of Better Homes & Gardens Pointelized Ogee Outdoor Deep Seat Pillow Back Cushion to used as floor pillows because of their size. These are reversible which makes them a great buy and I know that the girls would love to used these.
Covering from the sun
Miami can be so hot throughout the year. And while we love to spend time outside, being under the sun can make this experience somewhat unpleasant. To solve this matter I placed in this area the Better Homes & Gardens 9ft. Aluminum Market Umbrella, Pointelized Ogee. The size and beautiful design makes it ideal for this area.
Plant on plant
I love plants and truly enjoy the energy these provide. Adding more of them to our little corner makes perfect sense when using a Better Homes & Gardens 7″ Planter. This beautiful piece comes in two sizes: 7″ and 5″. The rustic finish and crackled border adds a textural interest and a collected feeling into the decor.
This sun filled corner is now finished and those tropical breezes are starting to come in. The sitting area makes a great statement and is the perfect excuse to spend more time outside. Have you mix-and-match outdoor pieces? Which are your favorite for this spring/summer season?
