Best Indoor / Outdoor Picks for Summer

My favorite part about summer is the warm weather that allows for perfect evening barbecues.  To me, there’s nothing better than firing up the grill and having a nice cold drink with your friends and family.  

Since we love to spend so much time outside enjoying the warmth, it’s important that our backyard feels just as comfortable as our living room.  Luckily, there are so many different products that are great for both indoor and outdoor use.  This is perfect for when you need to grab extra chairs and cushions from inside to accommodate extra guests!

 

I love the playfulness of this hanging rattan chair.  We got to test a few out last year at the Design Market, and were pleasantly surprised by how comfortable they were!

If you don’t have the right space for a hanging rattan chair, consider one like this to achieve that same beachy, laid back vibe.

Living on Cape Cod, we are admittedly a little Lilly Pulitzer obsessed.  So, when we heard about their collaboration with Pottery Barn, we knew it would be a dream come true.

Probably the indoor/outdoor product that we use most frequently is an easy-care rug.  Of course you need the outdoor rating if you will be using them outside, but they are a great option for homes with pets and children because of their low maintenance and incredible durability.

These same fabrics can be used to cover furniture like ottomans, too!

Garden stools come in all sorts of fun colors and patterns.  These are such a great way to add a funky pop to your decor!

We feel like no patio is truly complete without a drink station.  And a tropical-style rolling bar cart?  We’re sold.

Our go-to placemats and table runners are perfect for your table inside or out.  Life is too short to worry about food stains on your table linens, so we love these products for their stress-free maintenance!

We do love to have a set of outdoor drink ware in our cabinets that might be a bit more festive than your every day glasses.  How fun are these?!
