Sincere apologies for the radio silence, my friends! It’s been quite a doozy in my neck of the woods. One being a growing baby bump (oops and woo!) that has literally sucked all the energy out of me. I’m told I should be getting my energy back soon, though, so hopefully will be back to normal posting soon. I’ll be sure to share more as things progress! Other than that – lots of exciting things on the horizon including one large project in New Orleans.
Needless to say there won’t be a ton of summer traveling for me. Part good because I’m a home body, part miserable because the humidity is no joke. Before it gets really crazy, though, we partnered with Pier 1 Imports to deck out our backyard so we can enjoy the cool weather while we still can!
It can be somewhat overwhelming when it comes to outdoor decorating. There’s space, functionality, and cost to consider, not to mention how to make it an extension of your home. While my home is pretty muted with natural colors, I think backyards deserve a little more pop! But, a little more pop doesn’t have to cost a lot of money.
The key? Versatile accessories that can be used both indoors and outdoors. I spruced up an old bistro set with some fun accessories that would bring a little bit of the New England / Martha’s Vineyard vibes. The lanterns, rope accents, tray, and pillows (all on sale) do just the trick for outdoor entertaining but can easily be used indoors. While summer’s sure to be another scorcher, our little growing family will pretend to be outdoors while cooling off right next to the AC unit!
