If I had to pick my favorite season change it would have to be summer into fall. It’s still warm enough to be outside but when it gets to brisk, you get to wrap yourself in wooly sweaters and warm blankets.
And because the warmer weather is fleeting I feel like we are all scrambling to get in as much outside time as possible before the snow starts.
As many of you probably recall, I had an incident with my outdoor glass-top table (here) I kinda broke it. That little incident got me to rethink how I use my outdoor space and how I can make it even better. So I cleaned up the mess, sold my chairs that matched my broken table and started over! My sister recently moved back to town and lovingly swapped her unused patio set from her PA home for some of my design assistance.
I of course am thrilled with this arrangement because I can now use my deck for this festive cozy season. I see many hot cappuccinos being sipped out there in my future.
Recently I partnered with Coupons.com to show how I transition my home from summer to fall. I couldn’t think of a more fitting space to cozy up for the season than my deck. With a $100 e-gift card to Sears from Coupons.com I used Coupons.com coupons (here) to save even more on accessorizing for the season. And Coupons.com is giving away a $200 e-gift card to Sears to one lucky ready to help you get ready for fall!
To transition from summer to fall I wanted a warm and relaxing space that I could just curl up in an spend a couple hours chatting with a friend.
To achieve that feeling I incorporated lanterns for light and for the sense of warmth they lend from the soft glow of their candles.
I used comfy outdoor pillows in a soft shade of pumpkin, along with cozy plaid throws to keep you warm.
And since sipping cappuccinos is my favorite thing to do on my deck, I thought some crisp white mugs with claret polkadots and a porcelain serving tray to bring out all my goodies on would be the perfect touch for my fall deck.
So, are you ready to join me on my deck yet?!
