  1. Averill says:

    Camila, you HAVE to buy this, perform your magic (LOVE the idea of all this red) and then invite us all over for a BBQ. 😉

    This is SO making me wish my yard was something other than a big rectangle of weeds!

  26. Sarah says:

    I love the chandelier. can't wait to see it all done up.

  27. Redesign Diva says:

    Visiting from Dreams of Perfection, honey you better make that chandelier from out of season fake cranberries if you can…

    Lol…I had a neighbor who had one of those last year for about five good months…all I have to say is be careful of high winds and definitely change the fabric…

  28. Lisa says:

    I am all over this! The bamboo frame itself is worth the price!
    I would be doing the same…trying to tweek it to my liking. It can't be like ALL the other outdoor rooms in my neighborhood!
    I am thinking hot pink sunbrella fabric panels tied back in the summer.
    By the way…anchor it well (more than you think)to your deck or patio. The way those are tented, sends them flying all over the place and all it takes is one good summer storm. Love Big Lots too! Great post.

  29. Love Where You LIve says:

    Great post! I want your Big Lots find. wow! You got it, right?! And your plans to give it a face lift are spot on! Perfect, perfect — as is the temperature there. cheers, -susan

  30. Alexandra Rae says:

    Thanks for the Big Lots rewards tip! Love the whole post. It would be gorge

  31. Liz says:

    Oh! I can't wait to see the final outcome!

My living room is one of the rooms that evolved drastically from when we first moved one. Originally I painted the walls chocolate brown and did accents of white, blue and orange. That lasted maybe 2 years.

Our dining room sat empty for months. Okay maybe it was empty for just a handful of weeks and then we couldn’t take it anymore and put in a folding table and plastic outdoor chairs, but in my mind that was still empty.

On the main floor of our house we have a Florida room. Being that it’s a Florida room it is a considered a 3 season room, because there is no heat in the room. The previous owners used it as an indoor patio with outdoor furniture and it looked like this when we moved in.


Fall is the perfect season to host an outdoor movie night in your backyard! It’s that time of year when outdoor furniture is still outside and it gets dark earlier than the summer which means your little kiddos can enjoy the movie night as well. It’s so nice to transform your backyard with cozy blankets, […]

round up of budget friendly bar carts

Can you believe it’s already November? Before we know it Thanks No. 1 Modern bar cart with patterned sides that looks great as is, but would also look amazing painted a pop of color! Plus it’s only $157. No. 2 This lucite bar cart is a personal favorite of mine. Look at those chic lines! […]

For the longest time our backyard was mainly just grass and a little small area where we laid down some pavers so that we could set out a little plastic table/chairs during the summer. Not exactly ideal for entertaining. For the past couple of years we have wanted to build a deck and enjoy the […]
