A Gardener's Retreat with Pier One Imports

Have you been to Pier 1 Imports lately?

I'll admit I hadn't, so when I got this opportunity to do a review on

their outdoor furniture and accessories to create an outdoor space,

I was happy to see that they had so much to offer,

in all different styles for many different tastes,

and at great values for helping you achieve

your perfect outdoor room.

Come see what I picked out to create my perfect outdoor room!

The space that I wanted to turn into an outdoor room for myself

was this narrow side deck right off my kitchen hallway.

It's a space I'd like to use more often, but with the narrow width I

had to consider my options carefully.

Mr. Maison Decor power-washed the deck for me while

I went shopping at Pier 1 Imports in Woburn, Mass.

I had a wonderful time with Stephanie,

the manager, who helped me pull together

the elements I would use to create my new outdoor room!

I came home with a few large boxes and several bags and started unpacking.

This wonderful outdoor clock and thermometer in a

copper verdigris finish makes Tobey look tiny!

I was excited to see the finish on this clock, as it picked

up the colors in the floral umbrella I had selected.

Its soft sea-green background won me over. Isn't it pretty?

It was also the perfect size for my narrow deck.

Pier 1 Imports has the most amazing selection of umbrellas.

It was hard to choose, but I fell for this color.

The big clock got mounted on the side of the house.

In front of it is a darling metal floral and bird garden stake.

Lots of cute and elegant yard ornaments can be found at the store.

My outdoor room plan was to create a gardener's room~

a private space with all the things that I love.

I love gardening, so giving my room a garden theme

helped me define what would work in the space.

At the end of a long day of weeding and planting, what better spot

to relax with a nice glass of wine or pink lemonade?

I planned to put this gorgeous pedestal lantern with a tin roof

on my tabletop, but I liked it more on the ground next

to my urn and potted plants.

This lantern reminds me of a birdhouse~so sweet!

Look at these chairs! Can you say French?

When I stepped into Pier 1, these chairs won me over immediately!

They look so much like traditional French flea market chairs.

However, the finish is a composite that can

stand the weather nicely here in Boston!

The washed grey color looks great with my decking,

and this will would last a lot longer than any wooden chair!

A tasseled outdoor pillow from Pier 1's vast selection

repeats the pretty floral pattern.

Many of my favorite garden accessories were

gathered up to create the ambiance I

was hoping for. An antique wire garden stand,

stacks of terra cotta pots, an old cement statue and

pots of pansies and boxwoods all served to complement

the wonderful outdoor furnishings I found at Pier 1 Imports.

Create an outdoor room that speaks to you~you'll be glad you did!
