Ready to transform your outdoor space? You can have a beautifully landscaped outdoor space, but it just doesn’t seem quite finished in my book without a living space incorporated. I love being outside, so when I had the opportunity to transform an outdoor living space with some gorgeous coastal chic pieces from Pier 1 Imports, I was thrilled! Today I’m sharing the before and after photos of my project, so you can see just how much oomph furniture can add to your own yard.
First, I looked for just the right outdoor furniture. I knew I wanted to create a cozy little area that my family and I could relax in, but that wouldn’t necessarily take up a huge portion of the backyard. The San Mateo line at Pier 1 Imports was the perfect fit. It’s big enough to make an impact, but doesn’t dominate the area. The Deluxe Settee and Dining Chair go perfectly together. I just may add another chair and an ottoman in the future if my family takes to our new space like I think they will!
As far as accessories go, I added coastal pops of color via throw pillows, specifically the Cabana pillows in citrus and cobalt. They go beautifully with theLoftonaire striped lumbar pillow. I just had to include a pretty print in the mix! I also picked up some pieces that would be perfect for entertaining because clearly I’ll need to have a rockin’ party in the very near future to show off this revamped space. Haha!
I’m a Florida girl through and through, so I naturally gravitate toward coastal inspired decor. I don’t live on the beach, but it’s less than an hour away, so I’ve always worked a beachy vibe into my home...and now it’s part of my favorite outside space too! A galvanized tray, Clarity acrylic goblets and a bowl that I used to create a centerpiece were also part of my coastal scores. As far as that centerpiece goes...I used the Pier 1 Imports Carmelo dinner bowl, seashells and an LED pillar candle to create my EASY centerpiece. I love using things in unexpected ways like that! Don’t you?
Stay tuned for my next post on how I’ve been entertaining in this new coastal chic space…
