Other publications this month also offered colorful accents that could add a little jump to your outdoor space. The Bamboo Tower Chandelier featured in Coastal Living would be a particularly chic porch light. (Don't look to me for specifics of outdoor wiring and the such; I'm just the idea guy.)
Also in Coastal Living, the Almidi end table would be the perfect spot on which to place your cocktail.
Ah, and these. Birdcage votive holders. Enchanting, indeed, scattered amongst the branches of our ancient lilac. In fact, I took a moment to hunt them down at The Conran Shop.
Disappointing, perhaps, but I always seem to see things in black and white.
