The beautiful weather we’ve been having lately has been life changing. I feel like a new person full of the sunshine outside. But the weather isn’t the only thing making me happy lately. We set up our patio with some gorgeous new furniture from Wayfair and I now spend more time out there than anywhere inside. I bring my laptop out to work with Boots at my feet, we eat dinner while the sunsets, and spend weekends with friends in the sun. It has been so awesome, I can’t even tell you!
After so many years of living in the city, the idea of an outdoor space that’s my own is pretty much heaven on earth. One that’s this perfect? Mind boggling. I teamed up with Wayfair to pick out a pretty neutral 4-piece set that I knew would go with my style no matter how many times I change my mind. Right now I can’t get enough navy and white so we picked out this Wayfair striped outdoor rug that is crazy soft and super durable. For those of you who asked on Instagram, no we don’t bring it in when it rains.
I topped it off with some preppy pillows including striped ones, a monogrammed solid, and my favorite ikat pillow of all time. And we use these Wayfair lanterns filled with candles to light up the space at night. It looks pretty amazing I have to say!
We went back and forth between this set up and a more traditional dining table and chairs but went with this because it’s more conducive to hanging out and can also be used for eating. When we have a lot of people over, we bring out more chairs or, most of the time, just sit on pillows on the rug. It’s been so fun to use this new space, and I finally feel I can now properly entertain in the summer months!
