Spring Patio Styling With Color – At Home

Sometimes I feel as if I live in paradise and that bit of tropical flair on our patio needed a little bit of help to brighten things up for spring and the upcoming summer months. It’s that time here when if you are indeed outdoors you congregate and chill by the pool…

You know me…I have flowers EVERYWHERE and if it’s the weekend I put them out poolside as well. I set the table in a large glass vase {aka…candle holder} has a frosted effect that was just the perfect size for my hydrangeas, roses and eucalyptus arrangement…

The At Home pillows are mixed in various patterns and that’s okay to do in my designing eye as long as the colors are coordinated. I love mixing up stripes, paisley, chevron and floral prints and these all work…

And although I have mad skills as a floral arranger or designer, admittedly I DO NOT have a green thumb…and leave that to my daughter who loves caring for the plants at our home. I’m in LOVE big time with this ceramic garden stool from At Home that looks like copper…

The pale blue Sophie wine glasses are plastic and since we don’t really want to have much glass around the pool when we have people over carrying drinks around they will work well for outdoor entertaining…

The large white ceramic candle lantern is definitely a favorite and I’ll be using it indoors over the summer months on the dining table as well…

  4. Hi Janet, I love the colors and with the pool it is so relaxing. I could spend a whole day setting under your gazebo. Your choice is great. So enjoy your beautiful chill zone. Have a wonderful week.
    I need to get cracking on my patio, no pool but I do love to sit out there.
