house crush : denise bovee





outdoor spaces are clearly on my mind these days as it’s that (short) time of year where we can pretty much live outside.  i’ve been trying to make small updates to our space and thus scouring inspiration.  i came across the home of denise bovee over on a beautiful mess and fell pretty hard for her relaxed kid-friendly bohemian outdoor space.

the patio set, lighting, daybed (i need a cat), kids table, record player . . . well you can see all the goodness for yourself.  i feel like a lot of magic and creative moments happen in this space.

are you making any updates to your outdoor space?  i’ve added this table + these chairs from ikea and i’m dying to do a little thrifting to add some interest to my space.  i need a few mixed matched chairs to add to the table and perhaps some lighting.

also, i’m sharing a few tips on stylish family outdoor living check out my article here.

p.s.   if you are looking for new instagram inspiration (i am – so tell me your faves) than follow denise.  she is an instant new fave of mine.

    If I was a child again this would be the dream fantasy play space, heck i’m even dreaming of reading a book on the chair with the frilly purple pillow and a nice lemonade on the table :)
