Summer on the Deck: The Plan

Hello and happy weekend! Its the official start to summer this weekend, so I thought I would share the design plans for our little deck. We aren't doing too much...just mainly some styling updates and tweaks.


You can see above what it looked like last year and I'm keeping some of the same pieces (the love seat, the umbrella base, the cafe lights). As I look back, I feel like that version definitely needs some more warmth and variation (as it looks so matchy-matchy to me), so I'm adding some new chairs and swapping out the storage ottoman for a tan wicker one I already have. And a slightly bigger rug! Also, the umbrella didn't survive the winter, so I've ordered a fun black and white one (I accidentally kept it open during a winter storm and it snapped!)

One day, we will re-do the entire space (new deck with a pergola, landscaping, the works!) but that isn't in the budget this year. Until then, we can still enjoy a fun space before its get too hot and buggy! Its supposed to rain all weekend, so fingers crossed we can at least get it cleaned and power-sprayed and hopefully set up to enjoy some s'mores out there. I'll share the designed space very soon (weather-permitting)!

Also, both Target and World Market are having 30% sales on their outdoor items and most of the pieces that I have are from there! 

Hope everything has a wonderful Memorial Day weekend!
