Outdoor Living

Now that warmer weather has finally arrived, so has the ritual of spending hours upon hours outside. In fact, families today don’t just go outdoors to play, they create stylish outdoor living.

Backyard Movie

I love the concept of outdoor living (especially since its only 3 three short months for me). Things like eating meals, cozying up on a couch with a good book and even watching a movie outside are family favorites.

Tepee

Creating a space to have these memorable and relaxing outdoor moments is fun. I love the bohemian look pictured above. There is cozy seating for adults which blends naturally and beautifully with the tepee for kids to hide out in (talk about fun).

Modern Outdoors

If you are looking to create some ambiance or spruce up your outdoor dining space why not add modern lighting? You can always use outdoor lights but using lights intended for inside adds an unexpected element and makes the space all the more special.

Kids Outdoors

Don’t forget to add seating for the little ones.  Although there are many options for great outdoor furniture these days, using regular play chairs (pictured above) is charming. Little ones love anything that comes in their size.

So grab a few things from inside to take outside, add some lighting and cozy seating, get the grill going and have a happy and stylish summer!
