Hello there! It’s finally feeling like Fall weather here in California. But in typical California style, it’s chilly in the morning (50’s), and then super hot in the afternoons (80’s). Makes it hard to dress for the day! Good thing I have so much fun dressing up my outdoor spaces! Can’t go wrong there!
My Side Yard
My side yard is a space that we created out of open (to the busy street) space. you may have heard me talk about how our house is on a corner of a busy street. The yard is sizable, but when we bought the house (7 years ago), the side of our corner (U shaped) house was open to the sidewalk and busy street. We knew we quickly wanted to change that! So, we had a tall, solid fence built to enclose the area. This gave us a whole new outdoor living area to use (and decorate)! Let me show you what I’ve been up to our there, but first…take a look at what the house (yard) looked like BEFORE>
Rich Purply Plum
The tone for the side yard was set, when I went to HomeGoods and found these two gorgeous, rich purply plum pillows! I also found a pretty close match in a table runner too! I’m using them in the side yard to show you how they look great for a party or entertaining. When I’m not having a party, these pieces will be used inside my house.
I also had a little fun choosing some florals to coordinate and soften the look.
Plum dahlias, pale lavender hydrangeas, and of course…eucalyptus!
Everything here is from HomeGoods.
Time to Set the Table
With the warm weather, we enjoy eating dinners out in this yard during the week, and almost every meal out there on the weekends. As you can guess, I decided to dress my table to compliment my florals.
All tabletop accessories from HomeGoods.
Artichokes and Pomegranates, just because they are beautiful and delicious! I love to collect interesting wood cutting boards and serving pieces to display food.
I love to hang out in this space after the sun sets! We light all the candles, put some music on, and just relax!
Picnic Tables are the Marina 3 piece picnic set from Safavieh. Find it here, or do a google search.
Everything else is from HomeGoods.
Bringing the Plum Indoors!
The weather is mild enough to keep things outside, but I’ve decided to bring things in for some good indoor use! I just can’t get enough of this color right now!
Everything here is from HomeGoods, except the mirror and sofa.
Thanks for Stopping By!
I hope you’ve enjoyed seeing how I’ve used this fun new color in my home! What color is your favorite right now? Leave me a comment and let me know!
