I am absolutely thrilled to participate in my first collaboration with Wayfair!  As an official Wayfair Homemaker, I am excited to join forces and add a Pop of Color to my home for spring, and to help you add one to yours by announcing a giveaway for a $100 Wayfair gift card!  How cool is that? To enter, simply leave a comment that names and links to a Wayfair item that you would choose to add your own pop of color to your home! See official rules at end of post.

For those of you that have never shopped online at Wayfair before, you are in for a treat. Those that have, know just how many amazing finds there are from furniture, to home improvement accessories, to pet supplies and even jewelry.  Since spring is now upon us, it is the perfect time to exit the winter doldrums and brighten up the mood – literally and figuratively.  Since my husband and I renovated our deck, we have not outfitted it at all. As you can see from the picture below – pretty bland and uninspiring. I decided to go online and searched the outdoor section and went to town. The product descriptions were really helpful  and I don’t want to tell you how many hours I spent browsing. Within days my purchases arrived (a bonus – shipping is free over $49, even on big items).  I decided to go with lively floral print seat cushions as well as candle holding lanterns (perfect for citronella to keep misquitos at bay).  The results are the perfect beginnings of a colorful and inspired summer experience.  I had my eye on a couple of other possibilities which would further spruce up our outdoor living area as well.  So much to choose from!

The patio set before…uninspired.

The patio set complete with the cushions and lanterns! Just the pop of color we needed.

Blazing Needles Outdoor Cushions – I chose the Skyworks pattern shown above.


Austin Ceramic Lanterns – I love the colors and rustic charm they add to the deck.

Future possibilities…Oxford Garden Siena Lounge Seating for the back yard.

Future possibilities…Momeni Baja Multicolored Rug for the screened in porch.

Future possibilities…Zingz Thingz Jewel Tone Round Flower Pot Planter for my husband’s green thumb.
