The on the patio, porch, terrace or deck on summer holidays season complete with summer ready spots of relaxation and entertaining decked out to impress is ready to a kick off. Memorial Day is fast approaching with the 4th of July and Labor Day arriving sooner than later. The Canadian snowbird couple celebrated Victoria Day this past Monday, and the snaps of their deck and yard getting summer ready mirrors what many of us are patio planning.
Ollie by Gollie and Caramel the Wonder Rescue love spending time outdoors soaking up the sun. Winter is in the rearview mirror, and we are looking ahead to outdoor living, entertaining, and my favorite, decorating, with the full-on colors, patterns, and textures that visually convey the message summer has arrived. The warm temps of spring every days and summer holidays is inspiration central for those who love decorating and celebrating their outdoor living life on the patio, porch, terrace or deck on summer holidays.
Summer evenings set to a serene and tranquil scene usher in a leave the fast track behind and escape to relaxation destination. I love an outdoor space that visually draws you in and stunningly communicates come for the style, stay for the view.
A patio or porch or terrace or deck is a great space to pattern play with a splash of style and a pop of color. Color, pattern, and texture enhances the look and emphasizes chic summer style.
Texture blends well with casual chic in this woven wicker pendant in soft gray.
Great lighting is an essential part of framing the space- indoors and outdoors. I always suggest adding or at least consider adding a chandelier and/or table lamp(s) to your patio, porch, terrace or deck space. These lighting options inject a touch of casual elegance and make the space more intimate.
Pair a table lamp or lamps with a stylish outdoor side table. These examples are specifically rated for outdoor use.
Paper lanterns make an affordable addition to your outdoor lighting scheme.
We use a fire pit as another form of lighting.
And for roasting marshmallows for summer s’mores.
And mosquito control aka natural buzz kill.
Celebrating the moments of your outdoor living life with a cool refreshing beverage is always a good idea. Convenience makes a fabulous party guest, and a beverage station or bar cart sur le patio is as convenient as it is necessary.
The image below reminds me of the vintage sewing machine stand I bought at a flea market when Dave the Builder and I were dating. Dave found a scrap piece of marble to serve as the top and we were in business.
I first used the marble top sewing machine stand as a bistro table, then a kitchen island, then a microwave stand, and eventually a poolside bar/beverage stand. Nothing fancy by any means, but unique (at the time) and very versatile.
Now you know I will be adding this alligator lumbar pillow to the on the patio, porch, terrace or deck gotta have it list.
Are you familiar with the site Wish.com? My niece-in-law introduced me to this online direct from China shopping site, and I have ordered several things from the site with no issues. The merchandise quality is good, I have had no problems with shipping dates, and the items arrive as advertised. I ordered this leaf linen throw pillow cover last summer, and I am so pleased with the product and the price.
Are you ready for the price?
$2.00 including shipping.
A quality look at a super inexpensive price. That’s a summer style deal I can get on board with.
I absolutely love the color, pattern and texture of this patio umbrella. Green and black is a hot color combination of late, and goes quite nice with the look of summer and summer holidays.
Black and white stripes is a summer classic.
The vibrancy of summer blooms in seasonal colors is accentuated by color rich decorative planters.
Garden hose be gone, or at least housed in this beehive hose holder.
Do you know what a summer day and this post have in common?
They’re both long.
Summer days, summer nights, and summer holidays- are you ready to show your summer style off on your stylishly decorated patio, porch, terrace or deck?
