Trending textures, colors, patterns and plants create that inviting atmosphere, and Grace gives us tips and tricks we can use in our own spaces.

Patio Decor Ideas: Fresh flowers and beautiful place settings

Dining al fresco with Katie of Modern Eve is colorful and classic… and delicious too! Katie shows us that fresh flowers and beautiful place settings are essential accents that create a complete look. Of course, color coordination between arrangements and fresh fruit can’t hurt!

Patio Decor Ideas: Crisp white and pattern-on-pattern trend

Spotting the crisp white and pattern-on-pattern trend is easy to do on this beautiful wrap around porch belonging to Chassity, of Look Linger Love. Plus, we love the way this large rectangular planter defines the space. Container gardens are a great way to solve space dilemmas outdoors; they can act like walls to create dedicated spaces and delineate otherwise open areas.
