'O' for Outdoors Decorating

Animals in Outdoor Decor

I’m thinking ahead ever-so-slightly to when I can get outside and work on the garden. Spring is coming to Chicago, and it comes up fast once it finally arrives! I want to make some changes outside and do a little refresh, and I’ve been noticing an animal trend in outdoor furniture and decor. I’m here for it! Are you into it too?

Animal Outdoor Furniture and Decor | Making it Lovely
  1. Heron Bistro Chair, Frontgate
    Why do I, a person afraid of birds, love them so much in design? I’m so drawn to this chair.
  2. Betsy Bistro Chair, Anthropologie
    So sweet! There’s also a floral version and cute matching bistro table if you like the delicate lines and white finish but say no thank you to all of this animal business.
  3. Outdoor Bird Tree Pillow, Pottery Barn
    More birds! They’re awfully cute.
  4. Admiral Butterfly Indoor/Outdoor Pillow, Wayfair
    I appreciate that this is just one huge butterfly. Like boom, no missing it! Would be cute with solid or small-scale patterned pillows.
  5. Hummingbird Woven Dining Chair, Pier 1
    I’m going to be honest, I came across the flamingo version of this chair first and thought nope, hard pass. But there’s something sort of abstract and painterly about this one that works for me.
  6. Springbok Rattan Bench (Left and Right), Anthropologie
    Every year, I want these benches! They are impractical for our climate and I don’t have a good spot for them, yet every year, there they are calling to me. Curses!
  7. Monogrammed Swans Outdoor Pillow, Frontgate
    For your best caftan-wearing sipping drinks by the pool life.
  8. Jungle Love Outdoor Pillow, World Market
  9. Faux Boxwood Garden Dog (Peabody, Casey, and Moxie), Grandin Road
    Peabody! I kind of love him. I’m not about to put in the years and years of dedication to topiary to make a peeing dog, but as a little fake tucked into your garden? I think it’s a delight.

I know they’re not for everyone, but dang those benches are amazing.
