    Another winning combination! The rug looks great. A fan of blue, white and yellow, I would be tempted to use it inside. Thank you for sharing this with all of us.

    1. Thanks, Elizabeth! I wasn’t sure whether to make such a commitment since I’m such a pink and green girl, but I’m really glad I went with it because it was lacking an identity up until now… 🙂

  2. Lory, it looks great! I’ll be there shortly. Chill the wine!

    Lory, your deck ensemble is just stunning!!!!! I am a big fan of blue and white so I love all your choices. Sorry I haven’t commented in awhile. I always check out your wonderful posts but we have been doing a good amount of traveling this summer which has kept us very busy. Hugs!

  4. Your lounge is lovely and so very inviting. I know you’ll have many relaxing moments there.

    Lori-
    This is my first time commenting. I luv your post-everyday I refer back to your articles and pictures. I am moving into our newly built home next Wednesday. I have been working on our covered porch-this post has been my inspiration. The white tables are no longer available at World Market. I purchased two Imperial vine garden benches for the sides if the couch.
    Wondering the size of the orientalist pots you have on your ur table? The diameter of the white garden stools are. 14″.
    The blue and white pots I love are available in a 10″, 12″ or 14″ diameter. What sz would your u recommend?

    1. Hi Tracey! Thank you so much for your kind words!! How nice to know my posts are inspiring readers. My white table/stools are 16″ and my pots are 12″. I would go 10″ or 12″ on yours, depending on shape. (i.e. if the pot curves in at the bottom you can go 12″). Good luck with your move!!

  6. Love your blue rug can I ask the size? Thanks

  7. Your outdoor space looks beautiful and very comfy and cozy. I would love curling up with pillows and reading a book on a beautiful day! I’m still trying to pull together my outdoor space and I think a rug is the perfect idea. Thanks for sharing at Merry Monday. Hope to see you at the party next week!

  8. Hi Lory, oh how I love the blue and white. You never cease to amaze me with your lovely decor both inside and out. The hydrangeas are gorgeous too. Hugs! P.S. I hope you will stop by and share at TFT.

  9. Your outdoor space looks amazing! Our patio is pretty dismal right now (with a dining set we never use); last year I was toying with the idea of getting an outdoor rug. I love how your rug really grounds your furniture to give it that “room” feeling. You’re giving me hope that our patio can be saved someday 🙂 Thank you for linking up with Merry Monday; I’m going to feature your beautiful patio at our upcoming party. I hope you’ll join the party again next week!

    Love Love your patio and your color choices. One question – do you have to bring your sectional pillows/cushions in out of the rain? I have a patio pergola with a canopy cover but rain filters thru so have to constantly bring in my outdoor cushions if want to use next time when sun is out! Wish there was a way to store them in the furniture! Thanks much! Have a great holiday weekend!

    1. Thank you so much, Debbie! Our cushions are Sunbrella, so we leave them out in the rain, but take them in at the end of the season. They sometimes don’t dry completely right away, but I don’t worry about it. And we wash them once a season to keep the tree stains and mildew off.

  11. Hi, I’m wondering if the rug is actually blue and white or blue and yellow/cream? Looks gorgeous!
    Thanks

  12. Looks great. I bought beautiful navy pillows last season from pottery barn with similar cushions. I see exactly what I need…..a rug to complete it!

  13. I Love, Love, Love the blue for your patio. Pairing it with purple flowering plants is exquisite. I may need to try these colors on the patio this year. Great post!

    1. Thanks, Lisa! I was just thinking about what colors to use this year and I was thinking to go back to the purple accents. Thanks for the vote of confidence!!

    It is all your little touches that make each area you design so unique. Love the jar with the raised dots Did you make it or find it? I have done similar with glass Christmas balls but this gives me more great ideas. Thanks!

    1. Thank you Ruth! Funny you point that jar out. It’s one of those things that’s in my house that I have no idea where it came from. LOL! I’m pretty sure it came with a ready-made bouquet I bought for some event and I, too, love it. So, no, I didn’t make it, but glad you appreciate it… 🙂

    I absolutely love the blue and white! I am trying to do something similar on my back porch!

    1. Thanks, Cathy! I really found the rug to be the big unifying element. Blue and white is well loved by so many people… 🙂

  16. Love this! Just found your site. Did you paint the coffee table gray? It looks gray to me. Love it.
