I can’t help but want summer to come, so with that, I have a lot of projects and plans in mind for the spring and summer. From added accessories to our patio decor, DIY projects and figuring out greens for additional flair my list is quickly growing and I can’t stop making plans for when the weather decides to shape up.
A Bold Black Stripe. Since last year was the first year with our back patio, this year will be about adding on the finishing touches, and I’ve got my eyes on adding in a bold black and white stripe. Our umbrella is black and white, and I love the neutral colors for a more sophisticated look. I already ordered a few black and white striped pillows for our seating area!
Fresh Flowers. Since I’ve been itching for warm weather, fresh blooms and sunshine, I’ve been buying a lot of fresh flowers lately to fill vases around the house. I love mixing up pops of color or keeping it neutral with whites – the latest house blooms are white hydrangeas everywhere!
Opalhouse from Target Dining. ICYMI; earlier this month I was swooning over Target’s newest home collection, Opalhouse. Since I finally got my hands on a few of these beauties, I’ve become even more obsessed with the dining collection, specifically Canyon Sunrise collection. The fun and elegant patterns are perfect for a casual setting or formal dining – and these pieces are selling out quick! I’m looking forward to dressing up our indoor or outdoor dining room tables this summer with these new pieces.
DIY Planter Boxes. Since we’re still figuring out our front landscape, to help add some greenery to our front porch, I really want to make some custom planters to sit on top of the walls of the porch. It helps add privacy to the front porch, while also adding in some color and depth. We’ll probably make three custom window boxes to sit on the ledge, and then a few taller outdoor planter boxes for larger ferns for the back patio area.
What’s the first thing you’re planning to do once the weather breaks? I am ready to get outdoors and start enjoying our outdoor living spaces!
