LOVING THE LANAI

I tried to find lyrics to a song to match the lanai love but all I could think of is “front porch sittin.” While I love our front porch, I love the back lanai even better and to be honest, I call it the back porch more often. It is a breezy oasis that I adore. Lanai sounds a little fancy.

This sectional set is by the Brand TK Classics and is so comfy and the oodles of Pillows and lanterns from Kohl’s were purchased during some great sales. I didn’t realize you had to get a TV especially made for the outdoors. 


Mr. Nine got the TV from Best Buy and we love watching TV out there. Mornings with coffee are especially sweet and the afternoon breeze up there makes it great for reading and naps for Mr. Nine.




This photo below is the most recent and you can see how big my Silver Berry Vista Petunias have gotten.

 The rug came from Sam’s club and it was my first purchase for the porch and why I added in shades of blue and teal.
 

Mom go this sweet lil sign for us and the cool citronella candle.


Of course, an outdoor oasis wouldn’t be complete without some coasters (yep with pineapples) and our sea-foam colored YETI Drink Holders are the BEST! 


AND How cool are these solar lanterns from Kohl’s, look at the pattern they make on the concrete floor at night! 


LOVE the Tranquility!

  10. Girlfriend!! I don’t even know where to begin because I’m loving everything!! We got our outside TV for our cook shack at Best Buy, too! Loving all the calming blue and design, but I am especially loving the stone sidewalk and stairs! I am assuming that’s coming from the pool up to the lanai and it’s just something that you wouldn’t really find here in Louisiana. Can’t wait to come visit one day! Enjoy sitting out today and soaking up some summer breezes!

  22. Oh my goodness, Andrea, what a DREAM spot! I'd never go inside! I think it must be so nice to sit out there, relax, and just unwind at your leisure. How beautiful!

  23. This space looks like pure relaxation! I love everything about it. That sectional looks so cozy that I would probably drift off with some naps out there. I didn't realize that about an outdoor TV, good to know. Sierra Beautifully Candid

  24. I keep saying it like a broken record but you really are livin' the Cloud Nine dream! Can't imagine what it must feel like to wake up each morning to a dream all around. Love the aqua styling, hope it's near that gorgeous aqua accents powder room of yours! X.

  25. That is decorated so beautifully! I especially love the coasters!!

  26. Oh gosh, what a gorgeous space! I love the colors, rug, lanterns, etc. I had no idea you had to buy a special TV for the outdoors, but it makes sense. We found out that there are also special fridge's for outside if you plan to have one in the garage, which we invested in earlier this year. Oh, I could just read, nap, sip some coffee/wine (depending on the time) and repeat, repeat, repeat. :)

  38. I saw those lanterns at Kohls but was unsure how well they would work. They look awesome! I want to head back and see if they still have them for our new house! I love how your lanai turned out. It's so peaceful and relaxing looking!

  39. It all turned out SO good! Completely classic & chic. Love the bright colors and of course that fabulous fireplace with the t.v....My husband wants to put one outside too, but we don't have a cute space like you do! Such a bummer!

  43. I just love your color scheme on the lanai!! It is what I would have chosen too. I try to bring aqua into every room I have. It all works beautifully together and looks so cozy. When I think of a lanai, this is what I picture!
