Dave and I live in a great little condo on the third floor of a third story building in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago. One of my favorite things about our place is our patio that looks over a bustling street, perfect for dinners outside and entertaining our pals on warm summer nights. Last summer was so busy with weddings and multiple weekends away that our patio didn’t get much love at all and after a horribly long winter it is looking especially beat up. I am dying to give this little space some love and brighten her up for the months ahead! Do you have an outdoor space? How did you choose to decorate it? I’m thinking about going in the complete opposite direction of our interiors, which are pretty neutral. Here are a few items to inspire my vision.
