With Memorial Day behind us and months of summer unfolding sweetly and unhurriedly ahead of us, we thing it’s official: Porch sitting season is here!
We don’t know about you, but one of our favorite things about summer is spending time outdoors with friends, grilling out and sipping cocktails, taking a dip in the pool or lounging with a great book. The kids running barefoot, catching lightning bugs, the cicadas chirping rhythmically in time to the evening breeze… We can’t think of anything better!
One of our favorite, favorite ways to make the most of all the goodness summer has to offer is with outdoor entertaining.
Gorgeous outdoor furniture, vibrant indoor outdoor fabrics… Little touches can turn a regular outdoor space into an experience, a porch into a living room, an extension of the indoor decor.
Beyond a simple sitting area, we are loving that outdoor kitchens are making such a huge splash right now! What could be better than having all of the essentials you need for outdoor cooking and entertaining right at your fingertips all year round?
This summer, we think it’s time to go way beyond the barbecue. From cabinetry to countertops, there are so many ways to create an outdoor kitchen that will be the envy of the neighborhood–and make you wonder how you can ever go back to standard, indoor cooking again.
Stainless steel outdoor kitchen cabinets take the quality–and the style to the next level. Plus they hold up incredibly well to the elements that come along with outdoor living.
Our dream outdoor kitchen appliance? A poolside pizza oven! Or maybe a smoker outside the sunroom.
Just add a little sun, a few friends, and your outdoor space is party ready all year round! If you could design your dream outdoor kitchen, what would your essentials be?
Thanks for making Design Chic a part of your day. We hope it’s great!
What People are Saying About Slightly South of Simple:
“Kristy Woodson Harvey really knows how to tell a southern tale. Every single time her stories unwind gently, like a soft wind in Georgia, then that wind catches you off guard and throws you into her characters’ tumultuous lives. Slightly South of Simple is the same. One gracious, old home inherited from Grandma, one mother who has so many secrets if the walls talked they would pour out like lemonade on a hot summer day, and three headstrong sisters, all working their way through the chaotic mess and joy of life, together. I loved it.” –New York Times bestselling author Cathy Lamb
