Patio Inspiration Boards

I still can't decide what to go with...

Bright blues and greens:

Or the muted:

Those are the two options unless of course I find yet another pillow I like this weekend...which sadly, isn't too far from the truth! I bought the windchimes from TJMaxx for $15 and $20 vs. the $39 and $48 they usually go for online. Score!


  1. I don't think you can go wrong either way, but the blue & green pillows will bring out the blue and green in the birds on the rug.

  2. I like the bright b/c it's outdoors!

  3. I love the bright colors!! They are just so happy, and if nowhere else in your house you can definitely go for something bold on your patio. Great choices!

  4. Thanks! I put all of the pillows outside yesterday (who could stay inside when it was 65 outside?!?) and just couldn't decide. I hoped that making inspiration boards would help me visualize the 'big picture.'


  5. Bright blues and greens. Love it! I bought the bright striped IKEA SIGRID chair pads ($5.99 each) for my boring patio set. Furniture should be neutral. Accessories should be bold!

  6. I like the muted. I'm not about bright colors. I think they date faster.

  7. I like the brights because they are so summery. And in Michigan, summer is only here for such a short time, live it up while it's here!


Thanks for stopping by!
