Friday’s Faves

Hello, friends!

Today is the last Friday of school this year… we have four days of school next week with Thursday being our last day, so by next Friday both the boys and I will be out of school and enjoying the beginning of our summer vacation! Needless to say, we are pretty excited around here and spent some time last evening making our “summer bucket list”! There are so many little day trips and experiences we want to have this summer, and I want to make sure that we squeeze in as many of them as we can… peppering in some relaxation and downtime, of course!

Baseball season is also wrapping up, and as much as my boys love playing and I love watching them, it will be nice to have free evenings after a busy school year full of activities. Summer vacation always gets me in the mood for beachy decor and welcoming outdoor spaces and this week I’ve gathered some gorgeous outdoor inspiration as well as a few beachy, summery interiors that caught my eye. I hope you enjoy the eye candy as much as I do…

I finally shared the reveal of our outdoor lower patio and fire pit/side yard area (after having shared the “before” with you well over a year ago!).

Did you get a chance to check out all the beautiful tours this week? Head to my outdoor reveal for links to all these fantastic outdoor spaces!

Also loving these gorgeous outdoor spaces this week…

Incredible back deck addition reveal via I Spy DIY…

I really love those exterior lights! I found some similar barn style exterior sconces here. We’ve recently installed some new lights on the front of our house, and I can’t wait to share those with you next week!

Sweet and cozy beach house screened porch via BHG…

I love that round coastal mirror, and found one just like it here!

And the natural basketweave outdoor rug is so nice on a screened porch (not to mention that gorgeous painted porch floor colour!).

I would love this amazing driftwood table Via

If you don’t have room for something this large, then even a lovely twisted piece of grapewood driftwood would work. Look for some on your family vacation this summer, or order one here if you aren’t going to the beach anytime soon…


And this living room really caught my eye Via.  I think it’s the way the doors open right up to leave such a welcoming opening to the outdoor space…

I was pretty awestruck when I spotted this gorgeous outdoor fire pit space via …

And, last summer, I shared a little tour of our summer dock along with our new outdoor furniture. I’m hoping to get some planters planted this weekend to add back that outdoor living room feel once again. If you have never seen this outdoor extension of our home, you can see it here…

Have a great weekend!
