Find It Style It: Farmhouse

So you’ve scoured Pinterest and watched HGTV for countless hours. Time to put together that dream farmhouse look, easy right? Wrong.

All these items are found on Wayfair, which is super affordable and has specials running constantly! This mood board will act as a starting place, but while you’re on the website, look under “similar items” or “recently bought together” for further personalization and items.

For the Perfect Patio Picnic

With summer slowly rolling in and people slowly being able to gather again, make sure you have the perfect space to reunite! A beautiful outdoor patio is a perfect spot to catch up with friends in a safe way. We recently went on Fox35 Good Day Orlando to share some trendy tips on just how to do this.

Our main takeaways:

  1. Bring color in! We created the perfect centerpiece by picking up citrus fruits, cutting them in half, then placing them near some palms. Open spaces are the perfect opportunity to play with bold colors, so don’t shy away here! Our favorite ones together are jewel tones; you can incorporate these in on a budget with just some new pillows, plate mats, or an outdoor area rug!

  2. Level up your lighting! Florida gets so hot in the summer, make sure you don’t forget to give your patio some space. Solar-powered lighting strips create the perfect amount for those evening dinner parties. They charge all day, so you can save on the energy bill, too. To avoid the bugs, be sure to light some citronella candles that will add ambiance while being practical!

    Lighting can make or break an area!

     

  3. Focus on being eco-friendly! So far, the fruits can be composted and the lights are solar-powered. Gather scraps of multiple fabrics from your inventory or from a local fabric shop to have as reusable napkins! This reduces the amount of work you have to do in the future to set up. Pair nicely with coordinated tassels on wine glasses.

  4. Pull all this together with the perfect cold drink and some good friends. We hope you have a great time!
