Blue and White Outdoor Living Area with Umbrella

One of my favorite things to do each summer is to entertain. I’m excited to share my outdoor living to inspire your outdoor areas.

I have a passion for all things blue and white. I refreshed our outdoor living last year with some of my favorite blue and white import pieces from my collection as well as navy and white accents. You can see my original outdoor living reveal here.

One of the main additions I made was to replace to replace the turquoise accents with a fresh navy and white color palette.  Now everything coordinates beautifully with our family room which overlooks our outdoor living and is seen through the windows.  It also blends seamlessly with our Cabana/Teen Hang Out (All the details are in this post.)

A few summers ago, a storm not quite as big as the storms that blew through Dallas the past two Sundays, broke our umbrella so it was time for a new one. I love the crisp peacoat navy of this budget find. It is Sunbrella fabric and I know it will withstand the strong Texas sun.

I added these pretty navy and white outdoor Ikat pillows also in Sunbrella fabric to our Adirondack chairs. The navy lacquer garden stool completes this vignette.  This is the perfect place to enjoy a cool drink and watch the girls and their friends swim!  These Adirondack chairs and stools are a great buy.  We leave them outdoors year-round and they are on their fifth summer!

In our outdoor living area, I refreshed our pillows with these beautiful navy woven pillows. They are made from a faux natural fiber to give them a textural look and be weather resistant. I then accented our outdoor wicker sectional sofa with the same navy and white outdoor Ikat pillows as the Adirondack chairs. I also added the navy and white outdoor Ikat pillows to our club chairs.

We love this outdoor seating set.  It is all so well-priced, too!  If you are in the market for outdoor furniture, I highly recommend this collection.  This is the 6th summer and it looks brand new!  The outdoor wicker color is Driftwood and the cushions are Cloud White with Gray piping.  The Sunbrella fabric hasn’t faded and washes beautifully!

We spend so much time here year-round watching movies and entertaining friends.  The string lights add a great ambiance at night.  My next addition will be fans to circulate the air here in the hottest months!

And you know I’m always going to share a beautiful tablescape for the season.  Full details will be coming on Thursday but here is a sneak peek of my Blue and White Summer Tablescape.  Many of these blue and white pieces live in other rooms like our family room (and here) but are great additions to a tablescape. Of course, it also has to have my signature pop of pink!

I have four of these gorgeous silver lanterns that I use in several ways. As you see them here on the table top, as markers on the stairs when we have parties so that people don’t trip and also to hold open our French doors during parties as well.  Mine are the Medium size!

When entertaining outdoors, having drinks at the ready is always a must! This steel prep table has been a fun addition to our outdoor living space. I always keep it stocked with fun flavored water in this drink dispenser, personalized styrofoam cups and fruity Pellegrino and Topo Chico. This darling Blue and White Ginger Jar Ice Bucket is perfect for keeping ice ready for drinks, too.  A tip for keeping things looking neat is to corral them in a serving tray like this coordinating white washed woven trayThis drink tub is the perfect size for icing down our favorite drinks.

Similar Pool and Beach Towels / Similar Woven Basket / Best Clean Sunscreens

It was time for a major update of our pool towels. I was so excited to find these navy and white Ikat beach towels (sold out – similar linked here). They are extra large and super plush.  We also love to have outdoor games set up. The kids love our ping-pong table,  bocce and this corn hole my husband received for Father’s Day.

I hope you enjoyed this outdoor living update and it inspires you to create a space to create memories with your friends and family, as well. I hope that you will now visit each of my friends and their beautiful homes below.

Cheers to a beautiful and stylish summer!
