Home decor in the gardening section

Hey all! Hello FRIDAY! I’m SO HAPPY the weekend is here. :) And we have a huge snowstorm coming too – I’ve just given up and decided I’ll just enjoy being snowed in for a few more days. Spring will come eventually…I think.

I think I’ve taken approximately 25 trips to hardware stores in the past week, and on my last walk through Lowe’s I noticed some really beautiful new items for spring and summer. They’re all supposed to be for the outdoors but I think most of them work better for inside. I thought I’d share a few of my favorites (and a few finds at Target too!).

There were a TON of candleholders – and a LOT of glass. These blue and green opaque holders were really pretty:

I bet they’d be gorgeous lit up! The blue/green planters below would look awesome on a shelf all by themselves as well!

These ceramic holders were pretty as well and were very West Elm looking:

Again, I bet they’d be beautiful lit up!

I’m not sure who can keep this much glass outside but I liked these hurricanes with the navy blue bases a lot:

These wouldn’t last long on our deck but I think they’d look great on a mantel!

These little candleholders are super cute for spring:

They’d make a great little vase as well. :)

I love seeing the new outdoor pillow designs that come out each year:

I’ve totally used outdoor pillows in the kiddo’s space – they’re super easy to clean!

Target had some great outdoor-but-could-be-used-inside stuff too:

Have you seen how much real vintage olive buckets cost? Wowza. Target has a cute version in the outdoor section:

They’re great for storage or filling with flowers (with a vase inside of course). They’d look adorable in a laundry room!

I LOVED these ceramic candleholders as well – they had small and large versions:

Loved all the colors.

Target came out with some great outdoor poufs last year and there’s more this season:

These would be FUN in a playroom or kid’s bedroom!

So there you go, some decorating inspiration in the gardening section! Have you seen any fun decor in the outdoor aisle? I bought several outdoor lanterns years ago that I still use inside to this day.

Have a great weekend! The next before and after party will go up this Monday morning! :)

 

P.S. Tickets for the Haven Conference go on sale tomorrow, March 1st at noon! We are so excited to host another fantastic conference this summer! Hope to see you there. :) Haven

  1. Those blue candleholder things from Target match my blue in my house but I don't have a place for them. We don't have a fireplace. Just one more added thing to dust if I can't figure out where to put it! :p Hopefully someday we'll have a built in/entertainment center I could put it on a shelf!

  3. I always wonder who can keep candle holders like that outside, too! Are they magicians?

  4. Love these! I am so excited to finish off my backyard. We got a late start last summer and everything was sold. I bought glass hurricanes last year at Lowe's. So cute and so inexpensive.

  5. You found some great things! I live in Canada and Target is fairly new here. It is not as well stocked as your stores, but it keeps me wanting to go back and back...
    Thanks for the Spring inspiration!

  6. I think Lowe's prices help, as well as the cuteness of the items. I love everything in the first picture!

  7. Target is always my go to for reasonably priced accessories. IKEA does a good job in the outdoor department as well. I love those olive pails and the opaque glass hurricanes! I've got to start thinking of spring and our deck. Thanks for the leads.

  9. Great finds! Thanks for sharing them with us. I agree with the glass stuff being better suited for the indoors, though. I like my outdoor items to be shatterproof and easy to clean!
