As I set sail this holiday weekend on my cruise and it continues to slowly warm up here in New England, I've been inspired to create an inviting outdoor space when I return. Our home here in Portsmouth is the first place we've lived which has a significant amount of outdoor space. There is a dedicated patio and, get this: grass! It sounds so simple, but coming from concrete-filled NYC-metro I'm so excited for my kids to grow up playing in a yard and surrounded by green as I did in Ohio.
To start my plans, I've picked out a few nautical-inspired items from Wayfair sophisticated enough for my husband and I, but playful (and colorful!) enough for our children.
My sister-in law's created a beautiful home, and she inspired me to select a cozy outdoor rug as a soft texture underfoot is welcoming. Since our home is shoe-free having an outdoor rug also makes an easy transition stepping in from the outdoors especially as my kids like to be barefoot when playing outside.
