With summer just around the corner and this year especially as we try to navigate the pandemic guidelines for at-home visitors, our outdoor spaces have really become the focus. Looking for inspiration, I always gravitate towards IKEA's stylists for ideas. Their Summer 2021 vignettes didn't disappoint. This summer it looks like they are going back to the basics showcasing classic IKEA faves along with new accessories to make the most of the warmer months ahead. There's some new lighting with pops of blue and orange tones, along with natural hues. Lots of dining al-fresco and creating an oasis with lots of greenery. Let's take a look! 1. Made in the Shade Love this lean-to shade that offers small space versatility. 2. A Plant Oasis A space that feels connected to nature and gives a feeling of well-being. 3. Accent Flooring Floor decking is a quick and versatile ways to update a small space. 4. Create Outdoor Rooms Love the idea of splitting up areas like rooms. 5. Pergola Love Bamboo poles on top of a pergola help with shade and end up being great for hanging lights. 6. Create Ambiance Lighting and sheer curtains create ambiance and a bit of privacy. 7. Movie Night Create a drive-in movie feel by watching a flick outdoors. Don't forget the bug net! 8. No Patio No Problem Turn a backdoor stoop into an oasis with a cozy spot to dine al fresco. 9. A BBQ Station Make a BBQ station with a few planter pots and utensil bars.
