A French Country

Summer Sneak Peak

I am so excited to start talking about summer. I know where in the midst of spring and we're still experiencing some chilly days, but in a few days it's going to be May - then it's June - so summer is just around the corner and if your like me, you like to plan what your going to do.

We've talked about creating an OUTDOOR LIVING SPACE with all the comforts of home. I shared different dining table and chairs options and different seating options, but did we talk about actual summer decor?

Just in your outdoor furniture, we'll look at the different wood and metal outdoor furniture from Ballard Designs to give us inspiration.

METAL OUTDOOR FURNITURE INSPIRATION

Just like with everything else, there's gorgeous pieces that fit our French Country homes and other gorgeous pieces that are left to other design styles. And this is the key to selecting the best pieces for your French Country yard.

Since each piece in the is crafted of cast aluminum, the decoration can be more ornate and finely detailed. Seat features an intricate basket weave design with a rich 3-dimensional look. Seat back is beautifully scrolled on both sides, so you can enjoy the pattern from behind.

Our Café Folding Table and Chairs were inspired by the bustling sidewalk cafes of Europe.

The look and surprising comfort of those charming café tables and chairs you see dotting the sidewalks of Europe.

How absolutely divine are all of these pieces. Makes me want to go outside and plump down into one of my favorite summertime chairs. Despite each of these collections priced towards the $3,000.00 range, we've also found furniture for much less.

Remember, this is your yard and you want the French Country style outdoors and I wouldn't think that you'd be happy with random store bought plastic furniture. Investing a little bit more money in a quality set is something you won't regret. Because these are very well construction, they can be left outdoors during the winter. Any wood will age with a given patina to the wood and should be expected.

With its smoothly scrolled arms, crisply tapered legs and gracious proportions, this Collection has a timeless look.

INSPIRATION FOR A NEW FIRE PIT

How absolutely WONDERFUL it would be to have a fire pit next to your seating area. Throw in a couple logs, light and sit back to enjoy the stars in the sky.

OUTDOOR DECOR

You must know that I wasn't going to let outdoor decor not be noticed. Many of which I've seen are also indoor decor which I haven't shown here. I only chose my favorite things.

Like in this gorgeous cement lion. Large enough to place next to your back door with lot's of plants in containers around it.

OUTDOOR CANDLE LANTERNS

Ahh...these would be gorgeous randomly placed and lit with your fire pit lit as well. Dreamy nights under the stars.

HOSE HOLDER

I never knew there was a hose holder like this. I'm use to seeing the types that are attached to the home. Because I thought this was unique, I chose to show it.

This is a plastic hose holder, but who would know the difference with the majority of the hose in it.

I absolutely loved this copper hose holder and thought that it was a reasonable price.

Here's another copper one in the shape of a bee hive, super unique and at a great price.

I believe that I've captured lot's of new ideas for your back yard. I enjoyed using Ballard Designs as my inspiration and then spending lots of time finding similar pieces at an extremely reduced price.

Be inspired by all the gorgeous things that you've seen here
