March 20 is the first day of Spring. Can I get a “Yipee?” Sadly, I’m excited for Spring cleaning. Spring cleaning and being outdoors more often. Which got me thinking, “How about a new, fun and relaxing outdoor area?” So, I took a look at Pier 1, a one-stop-shop for all things decor. They have an amazing selection of outdoor furniture (which can also be used indoors!) and accessories. Here’s what I loved most:
In a perfect world, our backyard patio would be separated into a few zones; dining, relaxing and cooking. To create a new, relaxing seating area, I would place two Outdoor Crazy Chairs side by side. The design is so fun it would add character right away. This chair would also be really cool indoors in a bedroom or nursery. Between the crazy chairs, I would have an Outdoor Garden Stool. Pretty and functional. Nearby, this Outdoor Mocha Trunk would provide great toy storage without looking ugly. This piece could multitask as additional seating or an ottoman.
Over in the dining area, four or six White Outdoor Wicker Stacking Armchair would line our current glass-topped table. The Trellis Flatweave Indoor/Outdoor Rug placed under gives definition to the dining area. Fun Etched Ring Glassware and Short Gold Tumblers (on clearance for $2.98 each!) pair nicely. For a pop of color, I would add a few Pink Flower Napkin Rings (also on sale for $2.36 each). To create soft lighting, several Black Lanterns to hang gracefully in the trees and a large, 14 inch tall Double Wall Hurricane (clearance price of $19.98, such a steal!) on the table. Perhaps a few strands of lights overhead, too. For a little cush, one Outdoor Calliope Honey Pillow and Citron Outdoor Accent Pillow to alternate color around the table.
