There's no better way to light up the night and enjoy the outdoors than with the glow of string lights. With a variety of options fit for any occasion, your patio space can become the perfect entertaining spot or simply a low-key place to relax on Summer nights.
Through tomorrow, all outdoor furniture and accessories at West Elm will be reduced 15 percent off. With Memorial Day right around the corner, it's about time you fixed up your outdoor space for a BBQ. The shop's got everything you could need to create a hip, modern outdoor space, including lounge furniture, dining furniture, cozy seating, pillows and cushions, lighting and lanterns, entertaining pieces, outdoor drapes and rugs, and umbrellas and covers. Better yet, if you don't have a patio or deck to decorate, there are plenty of pieces that will still look sharp indoors, such as hurricanes, trays, glass dinnerware, and pillows. Here are a few picks to get you started.
Summer is the season for picnics, warm weather, plants in full bloom, and plenty of ripe and juicy produce. But just because you're heading to the park doesn't mean you have to leave your sense of style at home.
In my opinion, the number of cheapo beach towels and Walgreens-variety nylon coolers are something of a design atrocity. So, take a second look, and consider picking up some picnic gear that meets your home's standards of chic. What's more, these durable, stylish pieces will take you through this Summer season and many more in years to come.
