Join our Brand Ambassador, Lisa Rocco as she refreshes her home for Spring
Do you find joy watching nature’s scenery change from season to season? I definitely do!
A metamorphosis happens right before our very eyes as Winter gives way to Spring with fresh abundant color everywhere we look.
It is a time of renewal…. we feel energized by the sunshine, warm weather, and spending time outdoors once again.
Here in the South, we are fortunate to have many weeks of outdoor living and entertaining. Living lakeside has been such a wonderful new experience for us. We enjoy sitting dockside sipping our morning coffee near the water, watching the geese, Blue Heron, turtles, and fish fill the cove as Spring commences.
The first spaces I typically “spruce up” are the patio and boathouse because we spend so much time there. After a thorough cleaning, I anchor the wicker furniture with a fresh outdoor rug which adds color and feels cozy underfoot. Colorful solid and print pillows in pastel pink and blue, a bird motif, and a soft animal print add a cheerful bit of charm for Spring.
SunVilla Home generously provided the Denali Patio Sofa, Denali Swivel Chairs and Porcelain Tile Top Coffee Table. Shop sunvillahome.com to find your perfect set.
We replaced our patio seating group this year with a sofa, table, and swivel chairs from SunVilla Home. SunVilla started as a small company producing market umbrellas and over the past decade have expanded their line to included loveseats, sofas, sectionals, dining sets, chairs, tables and firepits. And let me be the first to say that they provide the roomiest and most comfortable outdoor seating! You sink right into the wide and deep cushions! They also provide free White Glove Delivery service to any area of choice with breakdown and takeaway of packing materials. The delivery and set up process was such a wonderful experience.
SunVilla Home pieces offer exceptional details including:
• Premium outdoor fabrics
• Seat cushions and backs that zip together to avoid loose fittings
• Protective covers included with each piece to protect from inclement weather or for storage
• Furniture clips to keep modular pieces in place
• Fabric handles on cushions for easy carrying
• High quality wicker to last for many years
A cozy lamp, citronella candles, an outdoor wicker serving tray for refreshments, and a soft throw for those chilly evenings all make outdoor living areas cozy and inviting. Oh….and don’t forget the flowers!
