Get the Look: Mid-Century Modern Outdoor Patio

 Get the look of this mid-century modern outdoor patio space! A mix of soft grays, natural wood tones, and modern lines make for a cozy, inviting outdoor living room. Add some plants to finish it off!

Welcome this week's installment of Get the Look! This time I decided to skip the inspiration step and go with my gut to create this mid-century modern outdoor patio space. I had this picture in my head of what I wanted to create and BOOM. Off I went! I let those creative juices flow, which was so refreshing - I was definitely in need of a little bit of no expectations, straight-up design fun in my life.

Since we're getting into the summer season where being outdoors is priority number one, I wanted to put together an outdoor living room that felt fresh, modern, and fairly neutral. I can totally picture this design living on a screen porch in someone's backyard or out on a deck somewhere overlooking the water! 

The only challenge I gave myself for this space was that every piece needed to be on sale right now. I wanted to see how much bang I could get for my buck on this design AND show you how many good deals there are right now on outdoor furniture! If you're in the market, now is the time to buy, my friends. If you wait until mid-summer, your pickings will be slim because retailers will have already moved on to fall!

So, was I successful in my mission to find amazing pieces for amazing prices? Yes! Every item you see in this design is on sale except for those lanterns you see on the coffee table. They're extremely affordable though (and they come with candles!), so I figured I'd let them slide. :) 

Here's the design I put together and below it are all of the sources!

And here are some notes about the design and a few of the pieces I chose!

For this outdoor space, I decided to go with a very calm color palette and let the greenery and plants add a little bit of pizzazz. Thanks to the various patterns and textures, that calm color palette doesn't feel boring at all - that outdoor rug is certainly an example of that with its abstract geometric design!

The outdoor wicker sofa you see is actually a modular piece - you can purchase the individual pieces to make the size and shape you want, which is perfect if you want to customize it to your space. You can make a sectional, love seat, or straight sofa like I did here.

The armchairs have a really cool corded arm and back design - I've been eyeing those since they were first released and now they're on crazy sale! If I didn't already have patio furniture, I'd snap those up in a heartbeat.

To make this space feel like a little oasis, I lined what would be the back wall with some wood planters. I put three planters together to form one long line for high visual impact (but low cost!).

And finally, we can't forget about that little majesty palm! This particular guy is from Amazon, which is my new favorite source for plants if I can't find something locally. I wrote a whole post about it if you want to read more about shopping for live plants online. I've now sent two plants as gifts to folks via Amazon and both recipients raved about them.

All right, folks, that's all for now! Have a great weekend!

Get the Look: Laid Back Beachy Boho Bedroom

 Get that casual, beachy boho vibe in your bedroom! Find out more in this blog post and see Mix & Match Design Company's take on this light and airy bedroom style.

Maybe it's the fact that summer is upon us, or that I'm dreaming of our upcoming Bermuda beach vacation, but I'm excited to bring the Get the Look series back this week with a laid back, beachy vibe! I had a blast putting together this light and airy bedroom that's one part coastal and one part boho (and a touch of mid-century - I can't seem to stay away from that style!). These two styles work so nicely together - they're all about adding texture and natural elements, which I love. The colors are soft in this particular rendition as well, but don't lean too far into pastel territory. 

Take a look at the images that inspired the look for this week below:

I'd happily move right into any of those bedrooms! The common elements I noticed were that they all had lots of white (white walls and white duvet covers, for example), texture, and layered textiles. It feels like they brought a little bit of the outside in with plants and natural wood. It still feels clean and modern though - it's not overtly coastal themed, if you know what I mean. 

So the bedroom look I put together combined all of those elements into a cozy, textured space with a relaxed vibe. I'm loving this look so much - who's ready for me to bring this look to life in their home? I'm out of bedrooms in my house! :)
