By all accounts, summer’s looking good this year, don’t you think? The sun is becoming more and more ever-present (this is worth noting in the Bay Area, where the fog makes more appearances than the sun) and we’re starting to see loads of vibrant curb, porch and yard appeal in people’s homes.
If you’re having a hard time getting into the breezy swing of summer, peep these outdoor living looks below and get inspired to create your own summer moment outdoors!
This porch by Jen of City Farmhouse from doesn’t whisper “Bring it on, summer!”—it screams it from the top of its lungs! Frond-splashed throw pillows and entertaining accessories in shades like turquoise and coral bring the neutral furniture into summer’s colorful territory.
Hello, throw pillows! JustDestinyMag’s backyard pops with color and personality. It’s as if she used a tropical-flavored pack of Starburst for inspiration to create this fun space. (Look for the fire pit in the middle–love!)
Lolly Jane’s porch appeal is strong. Classic Adirondack chairs and a drink and sweet treat bar cart within arm’s reach make this outdoor space one of our favorites. (Because, “eat, drink and be merry!”)
A rope hammock helps transform your backyard into a breezy retreat for the entire family—but don’t take our word for it. Peep Taryn’s Design, Dining + Diapers to see exactly where she’s going to be hanging out (with a book) all summer long.
