We love being outside during summer time and in Southern California we try to find any excuse to get outdoors. That means we’re going to want to get the family outside and enjoy dinner as much as possible. Why wouldn’t we?
It should be no surprise that a summer home trend would be all about outdoor dining. The weather’s right, the food is warm and the good times are plenty. It’s the perfect combination for all to enjoy. Plus it’s an easy way to entertain any guests coming over. Set up shop outside and keep the mess to a minimum and the laughter to a maximum.
We grabbed a couple photos to show you what others are doing outside, but don’t just sit here and wish you could do this! Make it happen and bring your families dinner outdoors tonight!

Set yourself up to enjoy your patio or porch this summer and grab yourself a swing! Don’t miss out on swinging those summer days and nights away!
Swings are a great way to just relax and enjoy being outside. Since they typically need to be mounted to a sturdy, overhead structure, you will have the much needed shade to help maximize those enjoyable summer days.
When it comes to swing options you have many choices. Go for a classic swinging bench with comfy pillow tops, a cozy day bed style would offer endless napping opportunities and you can even opt for individual chair swings which are perfect for limited spaces. Get inspired by these swings and look into setting yourself up this summer!
Spring is right around the corner and it’s been heating up here in Southern California! The last couple of days have been nice and hopefully it’s been the same for your area as well. Looks like a quick day of rain, but then we’re back to the good weather!
Not sure about you, but we’re all ready to be outside in the sun. When the time comes, we want to maximize our patio with as much comfort and style as we can. That’s why we have 3 quick tips for your spring patio! Get your patio ready for the weather and sun with these tips!
1. Use Colors.
Don’t be afraid to use a little color outside! Sure the spring flowers show bring lots of color, but do the flowers match your interior’s color palette? Or do you want the outside to start a fresh, new palette for your patio space! There’s no need to shy away from colors! Let the hues jump out and shine like they’re meant to in spring!
2. Use Different Types of Materials.
The tip’s title pretty much says it all. Don’t limit yourself to only one type of material on your patio. There are a ton of natural materials that work great outdoors and even plenty of ‘indoor’ materials that work well outside in the weather. They just might need to be pulled in from time to time.
3. Use Plants & Flowers.
This one is a no brainer! Bring some lush, green plants onto the patio space and really feel surrounded by the outdoors. Like we mentioned above, the flowers are strangers to color so use them to brighten up your patio! Make them the standout decor in your patio space!
