Hi ladies! I’ve mentioned before how eBay is my favorite destination for scoring designer handbags at a discount. But did you know it’s also a great place to find home decor pieces? Interior design is one of my guilty pleasures, so I’m always hunting for new pieces that add character and charm to my space. Since it is summer, I’ve been spending a lot of time outdoors and wanted to elevate my backyard a bit. We have a really big deck and still have a lot of work to do but I wanted to create a little reading/lunge nook for myself to enjoy the summer evenings. After feeling really overwhelmed with the task I learned that it all comes down to the furniture and mainly the accent pieces you choose to dress up a space and give it life. For today’s post, I’m sharing the outdoor decor ideas you can grab before fall. Since summer pieces are now being phased out, it’s the perfect time to shop eBay and score major savings on all your home and garden needs!
When planning out the desired aesthetic of your outdoor space, I recommend sticking to a theme. I take inspiration from chic hotels and resorts I visited in the past, and decided to go after a modern black and white theme. I think its important to keep your big ticket item neutral so you can change out your accessories to fit the season or change in trends. eBay makes shopping for these big ticket items super easy. You can pick up a single accent chair or you can shop in sets to make the process easier. I wanted to keep it as natural yet true to my style as possible so I went with wicker and rattan furniture. My favorite purchase has been the patio egg chair - it’s so cozy and perfect for sipping on wine or reading a good book.
Once you have your furniture picked out, the rest is a breeze! It’s super easy and really fun to pick out some accent pieces to dress up the space. In keeping with my modern theme, I decided to go with some black and white accents. eBay has you covered on anything from seat cushions to oversized rugs. You can never go wrong with some classic cabana stripes. I made sure to bring that pattern in with this umbrella and deck rug! These two items alone really elevate the space, making it perfect to host friends and family.
Finally, you’ll want to add some finishing touches with some outdoor decor pieces. I love filling my space with a ton of plants to bring in more greenery to our little oasis. Hanging planters are great for adding some dimension and texture, but I also pair it with plenty of regular free-standing ceramic and speciality planters. Some other ideas to transform your outdoor area is to add solar powered LED lights for ambiance at night, large vases, jute poufs for extra seating, and some decorative outdoor pillows to liven up your furniture.
As I mentioned earlier, this is the perfect time to score some really amazing home and garden deals from eBay! Whether you’re looking for large patio furniture decorative pieces to accent your space, definitely check out the expansive offerings eBay has to offer!
