How to Refresh Your Outdoor Patio Space

I shared this fun reel last week on our quick and easy patio refresh at our Palm Springs house on Instagram and am in love with how it all came together! We are so happy with our home out there but there was one spot in our outdoor patio space that I felt wasn’t super functional. I knew I wanted to create a space that was comfortable and approachable (but as always…aesthetically pleasing!). I found a few pieces on Crate and Barrel and used their FREE service to help bring my vision to life…and ladies it was a GAME CHANGER!

If you haven’t looked into their Design Desk service, I highly recommend doing so. I hopped on a quick call, shared some rough measurements, a few pictures of the space, and the items I was considering and they sent me back this amazing 3D rendering of what the outdoor patio space would look like with what we selected! I mean how awesome is this?! It helped me visualize exactly how the space would look before ordering all the items and we’re obsessed with this corner of THE HB DESERT CASA!

If you are looking for new pieces to refresh your patio, you can shop all my exact pieces below! I also included some of my go to entertaining pieces that we use non stop when we’re hosting.


We ended up swapping in this Wicker Sofa so we can all comfortably lounge around with a cocktail in hand…or even take a nap! I finished the seating off with two of these Oversized Wicker Chairs.

Thought this Round Concrete Side Table worked well for the space and it can actually be used indoors or out.

Here’s the Area Rug we have out there- outdoor rugs are honestly always tricky and I’m super happy with this one.

One of my fave design tips is to mix in different pillows and throws- texture wise, prints, colors. It always elevates the space and isn’t so matchy matchy, you know? Love this Striped Outdoor Pillow so I grabbed a couple and the same print in the Lumbar Pillow. This Grey Striped Pillow is out there, too.

We have these Oversized Planters and the smaller size scattered around the property and find them an easy way to add greenery to the space without having to break ground. Love that you can move them around depending on what you’re using the space for, too. I have the white and the sand colors.

You girls always ask about my serving dishes so don’t miss this Oval White Platter and White Bowls for entertaining! This Glass Wine Bucket is gorg and I’m excited to use it year-round and here are our Edge Wine Glasses.

We have a few touches of pink in this house so I brought the color outside with these Pink Outdoor Pillows and Oversized Floor Cushion that the kids love to sit on for meals or hangouts.

Oh and wanted to share this Footed Bowl which I use for fruit or snacks on our coffee table.


I’ve seen some questions come in about other hosting items I have out at the desert so wanted to call those out below…

On top of the glass carafe above, I also loooove this Rattan Beverage Tub for summertime!

With kids, Acryclic Wine Glasses are a MUST for by the pool.

We use this Drink Dispnser whenever hosting year-round! This Ceramic Ice Bucket is in use 24/7 too.

I have these White Ceramic Lanterns with these Flameless Candles on our outdoor table which you can see fully styled in this blog post along with tons of other summer entertaining essentials!
