Spring is in full bloom and with temperatures close to 90 lately, it’s beginning to feel a lot like summer. Before the season officially rolls around, invest in some great patio pieces. We love the coastal touch to add an element of relaxation and summer fun to your outdoor area. Warning: This cute whale cooler might just steal the show!

While you may only use your outdoor area for a few months out of the year, investing in quality pieces is key. If you’re going to invest in furniture, find pieces that will hold up in the elements for more than just one or two seasons. Just like interiors, shop for furniture that matches your style and fits your needs. Many of our clients love to entertain and having enough seating or even a bar cart is important.

Don’t forget to accessorize either! If you have existing furniture, look for pieces like this cute whale cooler or shell planter to add to your décor. Look for items that will do double duty such as the pieces below that are both for décor and entertaining.


Even if coastal isn’t your style, below are some other great patio looks!
