With the Summer Survival Guide in full swing, we’ve been talking a lot recently about ideas to make your summer splendid. So when I was recently contacted to give my readers a preview of all of the lovely outdoor goodies at Pier 1, I knew the timing couldn’t possibly be more perfect!
For us, the advent of warmer weather means spending as much time as possible outdoors, and our back porch essentially becomes an extension of our home’s living space. I am always looking for ways to make that space as inviting as possible, and I have to say that the lineup of wares available at Pier 1 will make primping any outdoor area as easy as can be. Between their line of furniture, rugs, wall decor and festive place settings, your outdoor space will be impeccable. And – perhaps most importantly – you won’t have to spend a fortune to get it that way.
I recently revealed my current design crush on all things peacock when I shared this tutorial at Tatertots & Jello. Wouldn’t that cushion look downright lovely alongside this Outdoor Peacock Pillow? The colors here make my heart sing!
Doesn’t it look lovely arranged on this glider? It makes me want to kick off my shoes and climb right into that picture!
And while I’m at it, I think I’ll make a little pitstop in this picture, too. That rug and those cushions are so fabulous, I think I would have to pull them inside the house once cooler weather sets back in!
I can picture myself as the hostess with the mostest when I wheel out this Outdoor Serving Cart. The functionality of this piece is terrific.
These lanterns would provide a gentle twinkle to illuminate nighttime parties, but think about how perfect they would be for fall or even Christmas decor, too! Decorating tip: Seek out versatile, affordable pieces like these that can be adapted for a number of uses. More bang for your buck!
The color palette at Pier 1 is eye-catching and bold, and the prices are more than reasonable. You really should head out to your local store to take in some of this eye candy for yourself. And while you’re at it, take a minute to see if there are any Pier 1 Tweetups happening in your area. How fun!
