Let's take this outside ...

It's that time of year again to take the party outside and embrace outdoor entertaining. These days, our outdoor spaces are just as, if not more, important than those inside.

When I was in college, my mom decided to replace the concrete slab patio on the back of our 50's ranch with an open air porch, complete with 6' swing and fireplace. This decision completely transformed our home and the way we use it. Thanksgiving dinner is now served on the porch farm table by the warmth of the fire, summer nights are now spent on the swing with the fan on high, and our little ranch now has the perfect place for outdoor entertaining or everyday enjoyment. While the concept for the porch was clear from the beginning the decor has evolved over time. I believe outdoor spaces are the perfect opportunity to take a risk and try something fun. While you may not want to decorate your living room in bright bold patterns, an outdoor space is a perfect place to experiment with fun colors and playful prints.

I found myself wandering around World Market a few days ago and was blown away by all of the great outdoor furnishings and accessories. We're talking color, pattern, texture, you name it! I couldn't believe all of the great finds. That place is truly a gem. These pieces are a few of my favorites.

Let the backyard bbq's, porch parties, and terrace soirees begin!
