Ideal Outdoor Oasis

We all have those instagram muses that seem to be just living in a different stratosphere of creative genius, and for me that's Jennifer at fleamarketfab.  Just a quick tour of her instagram feed and you'll be falling down a rabbit hole of bohemian perfection that begs you to rethink any overdesigned space of your home.  When WickerCentral.com contacted Lucy and I about partnering for a patio-inspiration post, I knew that I wanted to recreate one of my favorite of Jennifer's designs -- this earthy and inviting boho outdoor dining space.

The Inspiration:

Recreate this Look:

  • Layer miss-matched pieces of wicker furniture from WickerCentral.com to create a relaxed and modern feel.  Start with a teak wood table for rustic charm, paired with an eclectic mix of modern aesthetic wicker chairs and more traditional cane back seating.  
  • Using a wicker loveseat on one side of the table allows your dining area to double as comfortable patio seating when guests are finished with the meal.  
  • Accent with tribal patterned indoor/outdoor rugs and layered boho pillows in a neutral adn earthy color palate for a sophisticated take on boho style.

Rugs: 1 // 2 // 3
Accessorize: Lanterns // Woven Geo Pillow // Suzanni Pillow

Add an East Meets South Touch:
One of my favorite touches from Jennifer's look is the tassel curtain that looks very do-it-yourself.  If you aren't feeling crafty, try etsy where I found a similar tassel garland for only $20.  And  I couldn't resist throwing in a good mix of blue and white and an elephant garden stool to make the look my own.  Chinoiserie is at home with any good boho patio.
