Outdoor Inspiration

I’m on a pink and orange kick.  It all started with this pillow. 

Trina Turk Designer Lumbar Pillow Cover - Peacock Punch 12 x 16, 12 x 18

I fell in love with it when I saw Kristin Jackson’s {The Hunted Interior} patio reveal.  (Oh, and that floor too!)

Obsessed really.  So I broke down yesterday and bought the pillow.  I wouldn’t normally spend that much on an outdoor pillow, so I justified it as a Mother’s Day gift.  I told my husband that when he got home and he asked if he needed to get me anything else.  I told him that was up to his discretion. Smile

That one pillow started an obsession with pink and orange and Cassie’s {Hi Sugarplum!} space just fueled the fire.

These talented ladies participated in Home Depot’s Patio Style Challenge.  You can see their full reveals via the links directly to their blogs or the Home Depot link. 

Two more patio reveals from the challenge caught my eye too.

Brittany from Brittany Makes (again, orange, pink, black and white).  And look at that painted floor!  Love!

And Mandy’s {Fabric Paper Glue} patio transformation, amazing.  Apparently, I have a thing for black and white with a pop of color.

I’m inspired.  Can’t wait to spice things up with some pink and orange this year.  If the pink and orange isn’t your thing, you can find more patio reveals at this link to Home Depot’s Style Challenge.

Besides pink and orange, I’m going full force with succulents.  Love ‘em!  Always have, but haven’t done much with them.  Stumbled upon these images on pinterest and decided it’s a must do.

or this…


Just beautiful!  I can’t even handle how awesome they are.  Hope I can pull it off.

Oh summer, I’m looking forward to your sun-shiny days.

  1. Yay! What a fun purchase! I was drooling over all of those patios, too, but I didn't see Mandy's. Headed over to check it out-looks like her style is right up my alley! :) Have a great weekend, Kim!

  2. I love to pick out my Mother's Day gifts!) Pink and orange is calling my name this year too, those patio makeovers were awesome, I have a feeling we'll be seeing lots of similar looks!

  3. Such great inspiration photos! My patio is a bit tired but I need to buy so many other things, it's always last on the list but you inspired me to do something about it!


I'm so glad you stopped by for a slice of Plumberry Pie today! Your comments make my day, so comment away!
