Weekly Wednesday Wishlist #147

This week, I am finally ordering a new sofa for our patio. The one we have now was ruined by a feral cat who spent the winter under the sofa’s waterproof covering. The good news is there is so much beautiful outdoor furniture to pick from! This is a gentle reminder to take a look at your outdoor spaces and start planning for warmer weather! Happy Wednesday. Lory is first this week…

1. Here are 4 Chic Color Themes for Creating an Outdoor Oasis on your patio this summer, with product recommendations to achieve the looks.

2. AMAZON PICKS: here are this week’s favorites from Amazon.

3. THIS WEEK ON THE BLOG I shared this Relaxing but Stylish Family Room and how it has evolved over time, this Dramatic Kitchen Renovation achieved on a budget without removing the cabinets, this White Bedroom perked up for spring with pops of color, and these Elegant Table Decor Ideas that are perfect for Mother’s Day or other spring celebrations.




7. NEW ON THE BLOG: I recently updated the categories on the blog to make it easier to find what you’re looking for. If you’re on computer, you’ll find an enhanced menu when you hover over the “Decorate” tab, and on both mobile and desktop, you’ll find new category pages under Decorate for Seasonal DecorTimeless DecorStyle by Room and My Home Tour. Under each, you’ll find further breakdowns to get to the posts you’re interested in.


9. WHAT’S INSPIRING ME AROUND THE WEB: This exceedingly peaceful home is the very picture of understated elegance. This stunning bedroom is the epitome of a modern French aesthetic. Not a home, but I’m loving this simple DIY for creating pretty coasters.

10. UP NEXT: A primary bedroom update for spring…

5.) A few weeks ago I shared a refreshing spring decor idea that centered around adding bits of yellow to your existing decor. This article shows how to add pops of yellow in very small doses, and the ideas are adorable.


7.) Mother’s Day is just around the corner! I just updated my Mother’s Day Gift Guide with some very fun things any woman would love.

8.) This colorful cottage bunkie might be small, but it’s full of personality and ideas. Inspired by its stunning surrounding landscape, this small bunkie in Lake Muskoka is decorated in a soothing palette of blue, green and brown.

9.) Last week I mentioned that I was watching a mini series on Hulu called We Were The Lucky Ones. There are four episodes available, with the fifth episode streaming tomorrow. It’s an amazing story about a Jewish family in Poland during World War II. So far, there have been a few difficult-to-watch scenes, but on the whole, it’s been wonderful. It’s a true story that has been fictionalized, but it’s historically accurate. I know it’s not for everyone, but if you like this sort of thing, it’s definitely a must-see.

10.) Wishing you all a peaceful week. XO

ANSWER TO #7: The name of April comes from the Greek word for opening, as in flowers opening up in the spring. The Titanic hit an iceberg and sank on April 14th, 1912.
