Getting The Patio Ready For Summer


Summer is such a fun time of year. Time to be outside and enjoy the warm temperatures and fabulous sunshine. I like to spend time in the morning when it is a little cooler on the patio. Perfect for my morning coffee. Of course, I want the patio to look pretty and be comfortable. Getting the patio ready for summer means changing out a few pillows and accessories.

Here is a peak at a few changes I’ve made through the seasons. This is what the patio looked like when I cleaned up the yard after the pool was finished. This is still my favorite grouping of pillows and accessories. I repeat this often.

For a change I also like to add some pretty floral pillows for an instant refresh.

Keeping things simple with black and white is good too.

I also love to add some pretty camel colors too. This always looks warm and cozy to me.

I enjoyed the curtains that blocked the neighbor’s house, however, they were a nuisance when the wind would blow, so I finally took them down. Now I like the open feel. I’ve kept the decor minimal this season when I was getting the patio ready for summer. Just a couple pillows and accessories.

This year I am going to just enjoy the yard and the pool more.

    I’ve seen some shades that roll up when the wind blows that might work for you. It’s a lovely porch! I’m saving this as a guide for mine.
