{Etsy Love: Pillows + Planters}

As a second part to yesterday's post regarding sprucing up my balcony, I thought I would search around Etsy for additional inspiration. Outdoor Pillows are a great way to add style, color, comfort, and class to your outdoor living spaces.  Check out some of the pillows I found on Etsy - all made with fabric that is water and fade resistant:

Container gardening and garden planters are another great way to spruce up your outdoor spaces. Nowadays, planters are available in a wide variety of shapes and styles, which makes it a synch to find one that will perfectly fit into your space. Take a look at some of the fab planters that I found on Etsy {yep, they have everything!}: The vintage galvanized pale could add a bit of rustic charm to your space. The stackable planters allows you to add a varitey of plants and flowers as well as provide a little privacy from your neighbors. The window box is a classic and the planter bench is just....genius - add the bolster pillow from above and viola!

And then for a little tad of whimsy...
{Don't judge! I have big plans for Mr. Gnome - stay tuned...}
Final Signature


  1. i am LOVING stripes right now and i really like the cushions!

  2. Jen I completely agree - loving stripes!!! I think I'm going to do the black and white stripe with maybe teal or even blush accents. Stay tuned! :-)

  3. Try hosta - pretty, green, low maintenance and low sun required!

    Also, I know you despise JoAnn Fabrics but I saw some clearance outdoor fabric there and thought of you - might be worth a peek if you can escape for a lunch break :-)

    Good luck!
