Get This Look!

Yesterday, we shared this pretty porch. Today, we're showing a few ways to get a similar look for your own home!

Bring the inside OUTSIDE! Use these bold patterns on lamp shades and pillows outdoors! Pull the look together with lacquered tray tables (great for entertaining!) or garden stools (which provide extra seating!) and don't be afraid to accessorize your porch or patio. House to Home can help you complete any space!

Before and After: Fabulous Floor Lamps

July's Southern Living magazine features this DIY project by Eddie Ross. We looooove these cool floor lamps that were created from salvage yard finds and turned into patio-perfect lighting with funky, weather-resistant shades!

Notice the Dash and Albert rug?  (It's a House to Home favorite!)
Tomorrow on the blog, we'll share a few tips to get this look!

We love this party set up on the dock! We recieved a hodge podge of these vintage glass bottles and vessels recently- filling them with sparklers would be both festive and breathtaking!

Here are a few more essentials from House to Home that we recommend for Independence Day on the water:

Coton Colors- Happy Everything Firecracker Attatchment $22.00

Before and After: 1950s Daybed

With a few coats of white paint, new cushions, and a dash of fabric in the lattice work, this vintage daybed was magically transformed (by a Design Sponge reader) into a super chic settee. We would love to see it piled high with Consuela outdoor pillows and out on a covered porch for stylish seating!

Consuela Outdoor Pillow

Made with oil cloth, these fun pillows are super durable and easy to clean!
Come and browse all of House to Home's colorful outdoor (and indoor) products! We're crazy about Consuela's mix of bold and funky prints! We just recieved a new shipment of Consuela magnets, too! They're a great way to add some fun and organization to any space!

As Seen In!

Taboret Stool/Side Table by Bungalow 5

Featured on Elle Decor's list of the Top 10 Lacquered Pieces, this fabulous odd table (or seat!) comes in a wide array of both funky and more traditional colors.


We love this "go anywhere, do anything" piece in these bright and cheery summer shades!
Also available in: white, mahogany, black, red, and light blue.

Get this lovely lacquered table from House to Home!
It would look darling on the patio with a colorful Company C indoor/outdoor rug or as a side table in a space that needs a pop of color! Also, a great choice for a family room or den where you may need additional seating from time to time!
