I almost broke the bank last week! For reals.
We were in Atlanta for a few days and stopped in at At Home Decor Superstore. My patio was in need of a refresh for Spring and I desperately wanted to bring in some color and fun pieces to brighten it up. We painted our patio last Fall, giving it a cottage feel, but it needed color and warmth! A great patio needs to be ready for family and friends and Outdoor Entertaining!
I went a little loopy when we first walked in to At Home!
Imagine this...a sea of home decor goodies as far as the eye can see in every direction!
If you've shopped there, you'll know just what I mean! It's a home-decorator's paradise!
Luckily Little DIY (my 11-year old dd) reigned me in and we strategized together. I was there for patio decor - not redecorating my entire home!
Whew, serious financial crisis averted!
The At Home Patio and garden area was large and well stocked and we spent quite awhile trolling the aisles, searching for the perfect pieces. The Outdoor Decor Collections and vignettes through the store made it helpful to imagine what my patio could look like.
Let me show you how our patio looks now that we've done a little decorating.
If you know me and have been reading diy beautify for awhile, you'll not be surprised that I went with turquoise accents for my patio decor! It's the color I gravitate toward time and again, and shows up in various doses in nearly every room of my home. This diamond stamped turquoise end table was the perfect fit between two patio chairs. The surface is large enough to hold a pot of flowers, drinks, a magazine or even a plate of goodies.
Any time I'm decorating or refreshing a room, new pillows are a must! They add so much warmth to any space, including the patio. I fell in love with these teal medallion pillows. They add a big, bright dose of color to my rather bland deck cushions.
And they're really comfy!
I was also shopping for some kind of flower planter that I could hang along our deck rail. These ones I found are ideal for any space! I picked three and planted them with bright pink flowers. Mr DIY hung them up side by side. I love that they have a reservoir to hold water so the plant can drink as it gets thirsty!
Fingers crossed I can keep my flowers alive all Spring and Summer long!
Our patio now feels ready to welcome the warmer days of Spring! It's got color and personality, and I'm so pleased with the items I found at At Home to brighten it up!
It would have been fun to buy something for every room in my home; good thing my daughter was with me to keep it real!
How's your patio looking? You don't need to spend a lot of money to bring it into the Spring season; just a few key items can make all the difference!
