My Cozy Outdoor Spaces

Hello Loves, how has your weekend been? I am finally caught up with work & all
after having been on vacation. This weekend I played around on our patio
spaces a bit, trying to get a more cozy feel out there!!!!

I purchased this cute white SOLIG NET FROM IKEA 
before our vacation and finally had a chance
to hang it up this week ....love it so cute!!!!

Notice the new IKEA catalog I got in the mail this week ???
The perfect reading material for my little tent!

The large outdoor pillows are from Cost Plus World Market and
so is the knitted floor pouf
I also hung these cute polka dot lanterns on a string of twine

The outdoor rug is new as well. Got it on
ONE KINGS LANE last month for 40% off.....yayyyy


 I love to look out the sliding glass door now 
and see the net flowing in the wind!

 And here is our main patio area. You might remember
this space from my recent Mothers Day Post ?

I found this wooden hanging tray at a bazaar some time back
and finally figured out a good place to hang it. I added these
3 little buckets from the Dollar section at Target and filled
them with little boxwood balls. I actually used some double
sided Velcro strips on the bottom to keep them stuck to the board.

Do you like all the summer goodness????
I want to stay home all week from work now and catch up
on my reading in the back yard, who is joining me????

  4. Love your gorgeous little spaces! Fabulous!! You've inspired me to do more with my outdoor spaces! I've been focusing on my baby's nursery and my kitchen so haven't had time to think of outdoor but would be nice to sit outside and read a book or have a wine in a nice relaxing spot that looks pretty :)

  8. Your back patio area looks so inviting with the tent you set up. I bet that helps screen you from bugs! I haven't received my Ikea catalog yet. I haven't been in awhile so i'm sure they have a lot of new things in there.

  28. Oh my! This is a great blend of shabby-chic and modernity! That white net is just gorgeous! It makes you think of furniture arranged for a seaside view in an island resort. That is just so relaxing! And the potted plants, wood accents and twigs add another great touch of nature. Kudos to you for putting all these together. Good day!

  30. Thanks for sharing this beautiful post with us. You have very well decorated your home with elegant outdoor rugs. The color is the first thing that people will notice about the appearance of the outdoor rug. Patios and decks are excellent the places to use outdoor rugs.
