I thought it would be fun to take you through some of the images I found online that made an influence on how this space came together, and compare it to the actual outcome on our deck.

My hope is that you’ll gain ideas for how you can take inspiration you find online or in magazines and infuse them into your own spaces with your own style.

Someday I’d love to have these gorgeous blooms spilling out of it as well.

I actually bought the trellis from Home Depot, then returned it when I spied a crib spring stored up in our garage for a special purpose.


I found our hooks at an antique store and I love our solar lanterns from Joss and Main.


Our furniture set from Joss and Main is perfectly cozy, and easy to upkeep. I keep the pillow and blankets minimal so we can plop down without having to move too many things.


I was excited to implement it into our deck. I did a pickled white-wash stain on the top boards and painted the legs white.
