We love spending time at the beach. The sound of the ocean waves rolling in. Seagulls flying in the distance. The feel of a sea breeze. There is simply something relaxing about the ambiance of sitting ocean side. In fact, I enjoyed it so much that I really wanted to bring it home with me. At Pier 1 Imports, I found a way to do just that.

Pier 1 Imports

After looking online and pinning a few ideas, I decided I wanted to bring coastal living into my backyard. I was inspired by the bold, beautiful colors and decor I saw while looking through all that Pier 1 had to offer. Their oceanic blues and glorious greens were exactly what I needed to create my own luxurious seaside hideaway… miles from the ocean.

Considering I was basically starting with a blank slate, other than a DIY outdoor bench we threw together, I was able to really pick and choose exactly what I wanted. Looking for something that would allow me to relax as I watched the kids play, I found the perfect piece. The mocha colored Ciudad Chaise was exactly what I had been looking for! The  ergonomic design will be ideal for the long dog days of the summer as I watch the girls run, jump, and play. The attached little pillow allows me to lean back, kick my feet up, and enjoy my own little piece of coastal living space.

Wanting to bring a pop off the oceanic blue into my summer retreat, my girls pointed out the turquoise Petals Lumbar Pillow. The 3-dimensional look was definitely an eye-catcher and the bright color was just the bold focus point the space needed. The pillow brought a whole new look to the chaise and instantly brightened everything up. Not to mention, it was an easy, budget-friendly way to add a little luxury to the outdoors.

As we continued to look for items in our color palette, Colby could not get past the large Teal Crackle Lantern we saw in the store. Adding a citronella candle to it made the lantern practical for our Texas summers, and the craquelure pattern created quite the nighttime light show. The kids loved the light patterns and we enjoyed keeping the mosquitoes away. Everyone won with that find.

It was easy to know what we wanted once we stepped into the doors of our local Pier 1 because we did a little pre-planning online first. We loved how easy they made the shopping process and even offer 4 convenient ways to shop:

  1. In-store: See it, touch it, feel it for yourself, and our in-store associates love to toss around ideas on-the-fly!
  2. Ship-to-store: Browse from the comfort of your home, and pick-up in-store
  3. Ship-to-home: Our e-commerce offering, browse, order and pay online from the comfort home.
  4. In-Home Delivery: Order furniture and large items on, and have them delivered right to their door, or even have items assembled, within one to three weeks.

We were able to bring everything together and make a coastal-inspired outdoor living space that the whole family can enjoy. All we needed was a few pieces from Pier 1 to motivate us and really set the mood for our blank patio space. Now we have a great place for relaxing, entertaining, and enjoying each other.
