Summer is here and and it's comin' in HOT! So, if you haven't already done it, now is the time to get your PATIO summer ready. I know, the patio is often the last place that we decorate because we can only use it for part of the year (some of us fewer months of the year than others). But, I'm here to tell you that you need to make yourself a little patio haven. It doesn't have to be expensive and I'm here to help. In fact, I've found some amazing SALES at URBAN BARN (my go-to home decor store for myself and my clients - I LOVE it there). So, Urban Barn is having a sale right now on patio furniture and decor and I've got you covered.

Read through my picks and then get yourself over to Urban Barn to pick up the pieces for your little slice of patio heaven. You'll be PATIO PARTY ready in no time!

1. It doesn't matter who you are or what your style is, you need a comfy place to sit, sip your summer bevvie, read a good book, get your tan on, referee the kids - whatever it is that you do on your patio, you need to sit in style. So, I've found the PERFECT chair - the Fresno chair. This chair is awesome outside and when summer is over, you can even bring it indoors and enjoy it! It would look super chic in a corner vignette next to some greenery with a throw rug - a little boho, a little chic, a lot of perfection. 

2. It's such a great sale that I would pick up two chairs and pair them with the most perfect little matching Fresno side table. Again, perfect for the outdoors, the indoors, anywhere you need to set a drink or a book - and did I mention that it's on SALE!

3. So, you have your chairs and side table, now let's pull the space together with an outdoor rug. I'm really into this papaya coloured Miami outdoor rug. These outdoor rugs are perfect for making your patio space into additional living space during the warmer months. And make it colourful. I am definitely a neutrals girl, but even I like injecting colour into my outdoor living space. Make it fun!

4. Greenery = planters. An outdoor space really isn't complete unless you have some greenery - faux, real, whatever makes you smile! But if we're going to have greens, we need a planter and this Naila planter is a beautiful addition to any patio. It's white and textured and will go with absolutely any style that you're going for. It looks amazing with teak, wicker, iron, painted furniture - everything!

5. No patio is complete without a few (or more than a few) outdoor throw pillows. I can't get enough of a good nautical vibe and I feel like stripes can go with boho-chic, contemporary, traditional, you know - all the styles. I really like pairing these navy Aviva striped toss pillows with the orange rug and modern boho vibe that we're pulling together here. You could also toss in some solid pillows with these look too and it would be perfection.

6. Ok - so, we're getting somewhere now and you want to have a few guests over for a little patio gathering. You're going to need somewhere to put a few extra drinks, some snacks, maybe a lantern diffuser with some oils to keep the pests away. I got you covered. This Sumatra Butler Tray is ideal for all of those things and more. Plus, I would totally bring this indoors once the summer is over and use it in my dining room as an impromptu bar cart!

7. We're almost there, but it's just missing a little something - some kitschy decor. I'm normally all for a chic aesthetic, but we're outdoors here and we want this space to be fun. So, I think you should throw in something like this adorable Ferdie Thinking Frog garden decor piece. I would set this little guy up beside my planter or on a nearby step.

8. I'm not one to stop at just one plant in my outdoor living area (or indoor either, for that matter). So, you're probably going to need more than one planter. I am loving this Leece planter in the same papaya colour as the rug. It would go perfectly beside the white Naila planter or even placed on the side table or butler tray with a small plant. It's so CUTE! 

9. Lastly, I couldn't resist this cute little guy. This is Patty the Flying Pig and she is pretty much the most adorable little decor statue that I've ever seen! Plus, the turquoise colour pairs beautifully with the orange and white that we have going on everywhere else. Just like the frog, I wouldn't hide this little cutie in the garden - I think she belongs in full view. Plus, the kids are gonna love her!

Alright, so I think you're covered now! I think we've created the perfect little summer stay-cation spot and we did it all ON SALE! 

Don't miss out on this amazing sale and all of these perfect outdoor items at Urban Barn. They will go fast and you know you need these in your life. Your patio will thank you and so will your party guests!
