Rounding up my favourite outdoor projects from this year’s Outdoor Extravaganza, including plants, decorating, paint and more.
It has been a busy few weeks with the Outdoor Extravaganza, client projects, and getting ready for my son’s graduation from high school. This time of year always seems to be crazy, but thoughts of laying poolside and enjoying a mojito or two in July keep me energized and on track. I think what I love most about summer is the relaxed, go-with-the-flow attitude we adopt around here before “the schedule” starts up again in September.
A big thanks to all of you who linked up plants & flowers, decorating, and paint projects at the Outdoor Extravaganza. I was blown away by all the talent and will definitely be stealing some of the outdoor project ideas for my own space.
Here are some of my faves…(difficult to narrow down I must add!)
Plants and Flowers
The one outdoor project I always look forward to most in the spring is visiting the garden centres and selecting my plants and flowers. We had a big garden at our last place, but space is a bit more limited in this yard. Space-wise and clever gardening ideas are something I’m always on the hunt for, and I love these containers and raised-bed gardens.

On the outdoor decorating side of things, colourful and bold seems to be the theme this year. Creating an outdoor space that you love is a must in my books!

And finally, it always amazes me how paint and creativity can transform almost anything. These projects knocked my socks off!
