FIRE ME UP!

I'm so ready for Fall to finally kick in. It seems like Summer doesn't want to let go here as we've been having rather unseasonably warm days here in the Northeast. I so can imagine myself cozying up next to this Fire Basket and enjoying a nice cup of joe on a crisp Fall night. The mobile fireplace is the newest member of Menu's outdoor collection by Norm Architects. I so want one now.

SUMMER IS IN THE AIR

It's already feeling like Summer here in the Big Apple. With our first heat wave of the season in full force, all I can think of is sitting in a cool breezy spot—like the one in this beautiful photograph—to enjoy a refreshing lemonade. But what I love most about this setting, is that sweet wall sign made out of wire by Dixie Interiors. How cute is that. I hope you're having a nice relaxing Sunday in your favorite spot!

GRILLING IN STYLE

Just in time to kick off the grilling season, and the unofficial start of Summer, I wanted to share with you this stunner of a BBQ grill designed by Barcelona designers Mermeladaestudio. The geometric design of the stainless-steel grill will create a far more interesting pattern on your food. “It shows elegance and its aesthetics are planned as if it was a piece of furniture. Its shape and size is ideal for reduced outdoor spaces, ” the designers explain. Have a phenomenal holiday weekend!

YOU'VE GOT MAIL

This is no ordinary mailbox. It's witty and modernistic representation of a bird makes it a quite charming mail holder. Designed by Bill Playso from the Australian lifestyle brand Playso, the Koo Koo was meant to add a touch whimsy and curb appeal to any front yard. The wing was strategically designed to hold the larger pieces of mail. Triple love!

If you're getting ready to start designing your outdoor rooms, these sweet and quirky spaces have the perfect elements to make your Summer a sunny one. Happy weekend!

JUST ADD WATER 

These are the kind of finds that give me an instant smile. Maybe it's their cheerful colors or simply because they bring back happy memories of Summer. Either way, this fabulous version of the classic garden hose will add a touch of coolness to your outdoors. The Dramm Hose from West Elm is made of rubber and nickel-plated brass and resists kinking and coils easily, even in cold weather. The yellow one is my favorite... which one is yours?
