Guest Picks: Perfect Patio
For a stylish eating area, I love this table and bench/chair set. The cushions are removable, so you can change them when they get dirty.
I like the look of sea grass. It adds nice texture to this ensemble.
This L-shaped sectional is perfect for a corner of a sunroom or screened-in porch. I like how you can lean against one end and stretch your feet out in front of you while curled up with a good book. It seats a lot of people, so it’s great for entertaining as well.
If I could change my existing square, four-top outdoor dining table, I’d opt for a round table with enough space for six.
This plant stand reminds me of Cinderella’s carriage. For that reason alone, my kids would love it. But I like that it has two levels. I’d put storage on the bottom and plants on the top.
This small planter would be a beautiful accent piece on a side table or corner of a coffee table.
What a cute idea for a plant stand! I like that this is lightweight and easy to move around if you decide you want to rearrange the outdoor space.
This is a rain chain succulent garden. I don’t know how hard it is to keep the plants alive, but I sure to love how this looks.
I like the idea of having an herb garden on the patio. This little concrete planter is sleek and functional.
I love these hurricanes for nighttime. The polka dots are fun and fresh and add such nice ambience to the area.
I'm really into the classic look of navy right now. This striped rug is classic with a modern edge.
I can just hear the sweet tinkling of these tiny wind chime bells. I like that these have a subtler sound and could even be hung in a child’s room as “lullaby bells.”
Larger and more rounded than the mini bells, these would be lovely in a screened-in porch area. The metallic color will complement any color scheme.
This is another lovely wind chime option. I love the white ceramic look, and the graceful flowers add elegance and beauty to any space.
Here’s a piece that would look great outdoors or in. It would add some interest and whimsy, especially in a beachy space.
A handwoven doormat will work nicely to help keep shoes clean before reentering the home.
This doorstop is sturdy and stylish at the same time. It also looks like it’s easy to slide out of the way with your foot when you are ready to shut the door.
I would love to have one of these hanging chairs in the screened-in porch. It would be the most relaxing spot to sit at day’s end.
These soft round lights add the perfect mood lighting to an outdoor space.
If you have kids, then you probably have a lot of toys and clutter that get in the way of a beautiful space. I like a storage bench like this for corralling all the balls, shovels, buckets and dolls that end up in the backyard.Next: Get It Done: Clean and Prep the Patio
