Patio Relaxing

23 Jun

Good afternoon Glamourites!

Sometimes all you need after a long week or stressful day is a relaxing afternoon on the back deck. Pour yourself a drink, take a seat with a friend or the family, turn some tunes on and kick back for a few hours. I find with all the hussle and bussle of the day sometimes the perfect cure is to enjoy some down time just sitting. I was looking at some patio decor and layouts (plus some of these houses are amazing!) and this might give you some inspiration to spruce up your deck or spend more time outside!

The simplicity of this patio is very cleansing. You might find yourself feeling like you are somewhere in Europe with the clean white railing and the perfectly placed flower pots.

To get nice and cozy for perfect lounging,  the solution is LOTS of pillows! This bench just makes me want to lay right down with a good book. Also the fun pop of pink colour adds a nice element of excitement and warmth.Don’t forget an easy string of lights for after sunset!

If you are able to have a fireplace outside, do it! There is nothing better than spending summer evenings outside enjoying the sound of crackling fire or roasting marshmallows for s’mores!  The extra warmth for those cooler evenings is also a bonus. This setup also has the neutral colour pallet which is nice because it can be easily redecorated for other occasions or events. Don’t forget to add some flowers.

This last little picture of inspiration isn’t exact a patio or deck but I loved the idea of buying inexpensive candles and lining them up the length of the dock. This is especially effective for an evening party or casual dock drinks for two.

    This looks so beautiful! My friends and I wanted to have a nice sit down dinner while we’re renting a beach house in a few weeks. So far, we’ve ordered the wine off an online wine store and have decided on the food. I might take some inspiration from this post for the decorations!
