"pretty it up" patio weekend

The weather is finally looking good for this weekend- so think it is time to get our back patio "prettied up"!! Today is clean and organize the patio day and over the weekend I get to do the fun "pretty it up" part! I think this image (from my old favorite- Domino mag) is great inspiration for what I am going for....relaxed, inviting, and a fun red, blue, and yellow color palette!!! Maybe I will even splurge on some sort of fire pit and a few new accessories!!! Oh, by the way West Elm currently has 15% off all outdoor furniture and accessories!

I will post photos of my "weekend progress" early next week! Would love to hear how your summer yard prep is going????


  1. Hi Gen, love this image! Thanks also for the West Elm tip - my husband and I are looking forward to moving into a new apartment soon with a small balcony (urg - NYC real estate). Can't wait to see your patio space!!

  2. Annie,
    You are SO lucky to get a balcony in NYC!!! Enjoy the new apartment...and all the fun decorating that goes with it!!! Happy Shopping!
