The Modern Outdoors

Of course, after all of those Memorial Day weekend picnics and barbecues, we are all ready for Summertime. I’m sure that many of you are making plans, thinking about weekend trips to the beach, hiking expeditions, and of course, your own Summer parties with family and friends. To get ready for all of that alfresco dining, here are some things that will definitely spruce up your outdoor space just in time for hotter days to come.

louis ghost armchair

The Louis Ghost Armchair is the perfect patio accessory (and you can bring it indoors once warm weather passes). This classic piece will look beautiful poolside, or even on the small city patios that many of us have. A pair can go along way to add some style to your outdoor space.

koko floral plastic mat

This Koko Floral Plastic Floormat will add a little bit of elegance to your outdoor space. I LOVE this mat. The feel of an elegant carpet, but in easy to clean plastic. This will be sure to make your outdoor parties something special.

alfresco umbrella

This Alfresco Umbrella takes me back to the time of Audrey Hepburn. So beautifully classic, you will be shading in style.

elephant umbrella stand

And the perfect companion to the Alfresco Umbrella, this Elephant Umbrella Stand. In high gloss white, this stand has a modern feel. A little regency style for the great outdoors.

milo planters

Finally, these Milo Planters are the way to go if you like a crisp, clean look. I think these would look gorgeous planted with some Meyer Lemon Trees (you can order them online at Smith & Hawken). And with a simple shape and neutral palette, anything will look great in these unassuming planters.

Only one more month until Summer is officially here. Have fun getting ready for all of your outdoor entertaining!

    The Louis Ghost Armchair has been an obsession of mine for years! I am happy to say that I own one, but still imagine my dining room table with six ghost chairs. I’m working on it. Danielle, if you live near a Design Within Reach, find out when they’re having a sample sale. You may be able to get a chair there at a considerable discount.
