Getting ready for summer and want to maximize your outdoor space, lounge appeal and style? Enjoy our curated selections of beautiful high design pieces for your deck, porch, seaside abode and backyard gatherings.
A place of total perfection, love the different seating areas, clean yet warm and welcoming style. Beautifully conceived by Adam Christopher Design, UK, the artist’s site is absolutely worth checking out, the combination of sculpture, and industrial design is visually gorgeous! We love all of the designer’s concrete planters because they represent a contemporary expression of the tradition of true artistry in furniture and decorative arts.

1. A Required Investment -An Elegant Outdoor Dining Table for Parties
Goodbye old-fashioned splintery picnic tables, eating outside is natural luxury. We love adjustable tables, high quality and durable materials. Ease of storage is always a plus.
Skagaarden Oxno Collection, Houseology
The Nardi Open Air Lunch Table is gorgeous…..and incrediably practical it can adjusted for size and stored easily but is also made of a super durable material, and if you have a beach house you know this is super important!
2. Add Gorgeous Outdoor Chairs + Sofas
High Design is not only for your indoor dining room, chose something sturdy, durable and well designed.
This is definitely an investment worth making, however as a veteran beachside resident, I say put it away in the winter or during very intense storms. Also tie down your furniture during hurricane season!
3. Your Easy Outdoor Living Style Upgrade – Add a Bench
La Granja, Ibiza, Summer 2017, Tine K Home
No longer the stuff of public parks lovely benches are a perfect way to modernize your outdoor space, and provide extra easily converted seating. This fretwork embellished is actually a DIY project via HGTV.
4. Embellish with Beautiful Outdoor Modern Textiles
We love the chilly nights by the sea, and think that Lenz & Leif has it right their color block style in merino wool, perfect for those who want to be cozy but love that modern look.
You don’t have to go designer or high-end for good-looking textiles, it’s pretty easy to make your own, you can try Spoonflower for fabulous fabrics, and the inserts are readily available at craft stores.
I am going to teach you how on the next blog!!!!
5. Try a Contemporary Hammock
This is a little different from the rope hammock of my childhood…it’s basically a bed to watch stars from –check out the new Taj Hammock by Lujo Living as it seems just perfect for beachside living, I can totally imagine this on our upper deck, it gets windy every evening and this is a great way to look at the night sky! The stand is Kwila hardwood and aluminum, so it’s sturdy but beautiful. Made in New Zealand, it actually ships free!
6. You NEED an Outdoor Bed
Amazing, this is the last frontier of my wish list ……how luxury…now the mosquitos definitely would have eaten us alive at my grandparents’ lake house but this is perfect for beach ocean side living….There is not an ounce of doubt that I need either of these absolutely immediately…..
