I never actually realize how badly a space needs a makeover until I compare my before and after photos!
This spring I decided to spruce up my patio to get ready for summer, and although I liked how we had decorated our back deck, I didn’t realize how sparse it was until I took these photos.
We use our back deck in the summer to hang out with friends and have drinks while enjoying the view.
As you can see we had a bit of a nautical theme going on, but I really needed to spruce things up a bit! This is where Homesense came in!
A few of our accessories were already from Homesense (the decorative basket on the table, the single chair), but I knew that to do a refresh of my space Homesense the perfect spot to go. I didn’t want to do a complete makeover – I loved the furniture and pillows I already had. I just needed to liven things up, which is exactly what I think I did!
I added in some additional pillows in orange and white to add more colour to the space. Each pillow was from the same brand so they were the same size, and priced at $24.99.
I also added a couple of colourful throws to keep warm on summer nights and to add even more colour to the space ($24.99 each).
I planted flowers into this bright yellow pot from Homesense, and it was an amazing find at only $16.99.
Our little wooden buoys were from a trip to Nova Scotia that I could never find a perfect spot for, but I thought they looked great in this corner.
The table was one of my favourite spots to decorate!
My favourite item on this table? This amazing pompom cultery holder! It was only $19.99, and HELLO it has pompoms on it! It was such a fun piece that I needed in my life and it was perfect for the table.
These blue cups are so ornate, but they are actually plastic so they are perfect for summer drinks and only $3.99 each.
I have to admit that I have a few more lanterns like this one on the table already in my home, but I needed ANOTHER one because it was perfect to add to the decor ($49.99). I really love my new ice bucket which has what I thought looked like nautical stripes, and it’s huge so it’s perfect for parties (only $19.99).
Finally I added a few more touches like nautical napkins ($3.99), a colourblock-style platter in yellow and white ($9.99), and I already had this cutting board from Homesense ($16.99) that I added to the table.
Overall I am so happy with my patio refresh! I really felt like my space was a little bleak without all of the colour I added to my patio, and I am so happy with the results!

I was provided a gift card in exchange for this review, but all opinions are fabulously my own!
