Tuesday's Trends: Outdoor Friendly Decor
from West Elm
Versatile, colorful cube
I just talked about creating versatile seating and this indoor/outdoor cube makes a fab option! The only thing better than a sturdy decor piece is one that has so many uses. This would also make a cute seating option for a kids' playroom or guest bedroom.

Unsightly surface covering
Our outdoor surfaces can be costly to replace. Instead of holding out for a new patio, use an outdoor rug to cover up old pavers or stained concrete. I love that this geometric print rug is made to hold up to the elements. It's even perfect to use in a pool area!
Chic mosquito guard
There are so many products dedicated to keeping mosquitos at bay. However, this is the only one I've found that will make you feel like you're in Jane Austen's Emma! Throw this over an umbrella and seating set, and you'll create your own bug-proof outdoor room.
from Plow & Hearth
Even if you don't have quite enough room for a large patio set, (I'm looking at you, New Yorkers), popping open an umbrella can transform your space significantly! This striped Jonathan Adler umbrella reminds me of the umbrellas you see in old-timey movies.
