Pier 1 Imports: Warm Up to Summer
My home has a front porch, a roof deck, a bedroom balcony, a back porch, and a patio to decorate. That is a lot of outdoor seating to maintain, and unfortunately budget restrictions haven’t allowed me to utilize our outdoor space to its fullest. However, thanks to Pier 1 Imports, that is all about to change! Over the last five years, my back porch has just been an embarrassing storage area for junk. After 30 minutes of shopping at Pier 1, my back porch is now an adorable outdoor oasis!
One of the things I love about Pier 1 is that you can make big changes with easy, affordable updates. I had the privilege of teaming up with Pier 1 to review their outdoor seasonal collections, and my biggest problem was choosing which products to review! Matt and I loved the outdoor sectional pictured below and thought it would work beautifully in our space. We talked to the store’s manager about our budget and furniture needs, and she was incredibly helpful in directing us to several options.
These fun and colorful bistro sets would easily spruce up a small space.
And these outdoor tables with beautiful pagoda and market umbrellas would be great additions to any deck or patio.
Sometimes all you need to update your outdoor space is some new outdoor cushions. Pier 1 has you covered!
Although this next photo isn’t of outdoor pillows, I know fellow toss-pillow addicts everywhere will appreciate the following eye candy! I secretly wish my bookshelves were transformed into Pier 1 pillow shelves. Wouldn’t that be dreamy?
Okay, back to the task at hand: Let’s find some outdoor seating! I really liked the pattern and colors of the Angelique cushions, and I liked the sale price of the Casbah chairs.
I decided to mix the two together to create this cute combination. The store manager suggested we try the embossed garden stool in the center, and I was sold!
Here is what our Pier 1 Imports back porch looks like now!
This subway art, called the Happy Panel, was too cute to pass up!
Here is a close-up of my beautiful garden stool. This will look great in my living room during the winter.
One more reminder of what this space looked like before:
