I know that around this time of year we are all sick of winter and dreaming of days laying by the pool and nights filled with outdoor cocktail parties and BBQing on the patio. Especially being from Cincinnati, and living in Dallas for the time being, I know how long Winter can be!
Here are a few of my recent outdoor living inspirations, and a couple ways to splurge or save on your own outdoor space.
SPEND: this is the wodden slat double lounger from West Elm for $549. This is an item I would definitely splurge on for my outdoor space!
SAVE: this is the AMMERO from Ikea for only $199
SAVE: this is the APPLARO lounger for only $129 from Ikea. Add a cushion and you are good to go!
SPEND: this cute set for two is the Hoyte Dining Collection from West Elm. Its on sale right now for $319 (HUGE BARGAIN!) originally $799.
SAVE: if you’re looking for more seating and less price… here is the BOLLO table and chair set from Ikea for only $125.99. This would be perfect for a petite patio where you want to entertain company!
SAVE: Here are two outdoor pillows (in Orange Flame Flower) from Essentials at Target. The set comes at &19.98. *Make sure you’re pillows are OUTDOOR pillows/fabric before keeping them outside long term!
SAVE: yes this really should be a splurge but its SUCH a good deal I couldn’t do it! This is the Izmir Outdoor Rug at West Elm on sale for $149.97! (originally $299)
SPLURGE: This is a festive tableware set from West Elm called the Potter’s Workshop Tableware in Dot. Each piece ranges from $8-12 and is ceramic. A little bit more easily broken but would make such a splash on any outdoor table!
SAVE: This is the Scalloped Coral Collection from Target. Sets range from $14.99-34.99 and are ACRYLIC. Perfect for outdoor dining because they are plastic, easily clean, and perfect for around the pool.
In the midst of snow and sleet don’t forget that summer is just around the corner! Keep an eye out for great deals on acrylic tableware and outdoor textiles. Accessories can change any space!
