|World Market - Maldive Collection|
Well, we had a couple of warm days here in Virginia Beach, and it got me dreaming of outdoor living.. But all that furniture we use for maybe 5 months of the year can be pricey! I was in love with Targets range by Smith and Hawken (mainly the Avignon collection) but the prices are pretty darned expensive for my budget! Then I clicked my way to World Market and saw this gorgeous set, called Maldives. It's made from eco-friendly eucalyptus, and has the look and feel of the much pricier Avignon for way less! Here's the link to Avignon : http://www.target.com/b/ref=sc_iw_r_sh_furn_2_1/?node=2518758011. The prices here start at $429 for a side chair and $1099 for a 69inch table. Whereas the Maldives collection is $89.99 for a side chair and $299 for a 72 inch table. The other selections they have are also gorgeous and wallet friendly, check out this link if your in the 'market' for a new patio set! ;-)
Here's some other inspiration from Martha Stewart and House Beautiful. All we need now is Summer!
|I believe that the furniture shown here is the Avignon Collection.|
|Love this idea!! If you are lucky enough to have stunning views, use a mirror on your porch |
to reflect them back into the living space so no one misses out on them!
|Group similar planters of different sizes and foliage height for big impact!|
|Hang art on bare walls. Iron wall decor or even an |
outdoor canvas can fill a blank spot and add interest.
This piece (below) from Grandin Road would add a fun, quirky element to a modern space!

|Treat outdoor spaces as an extension of your living space.|

Bring in elements that would be at home inside your home.
Outdoor mirrors, weather proof sculptures, outdoor rugs and patterned fabrics.
