Instant Nautical Patio

Instant Nautical Patio

We were struck by the great stripes happening at IKEA this summer, and wondered if we could put together a quick patio with a bit of nautical inspiration. While we wouldn't normally put together an entire room from one source, we created the bones of a great outdoor space for under $300 at IKEA--including seating for four and a hammock!

Our "starter kit" for a cute, nautical themed outdoor area includes the Malaro table and one bench with two Blanko chairs (one red, one blue, perhaps?), a Dyning hammock (ideally between two shade trees!), a few Hallo cushions strewn about, a couple of Ostlig bucket planters filled with flowers, a couple of Barfota lanterns with candles, and some cute-as-a-button Midsommar striped cups for some cold beverages.

For an entire outdoor setup, with plenty of cute seating and great accessories, the price of Ikea is always appealing. The Nautical flair makes it seem even more summery, to us, as well.
