At Home + County Road Living Small Space BIG Style

One of my favorite things to do in the summer is have our meals outside. After the long winter I am ready to soak up everything summer has to offer, I decided to give my little she shed a refresh and turn it into our outdoor dining space for the summer. Alex and I had so much fun shopping @athomestores for the space and finding things that would make our meals with friends and family just a little more magical. With limited space in our house and my little shed I’m always challenging myself to create and make our small spaces as cozy and comfortable as possible. You don’t have to have a big space to live beautifully and you certainly don’t have to have a huge budget. Sometimes just adding small touches make the biggest impact, wood textures, pops of color with flowers, rustic linens, add some twinkle lights and we have a cozy new little space to enjoy! 

Wood bowls or vessels are also a great way to store your dining utensils, dishes, and linens.

Set the table, I always find having a theme or idea helps you shop better for what you are looking for. Start with a palette that you have in mind and find one thing to base your space off of, I am always drawn to more neutral colors and textures, maybe you found a beautiful wood bowl or the perfect ceramic dishes that sets the tone of your space, then build your table from there.  Accent with small touches that bring everything to life, if you’re decorating a bedroom or any other small space, start with the same process and it will make it easier to decorate your space.  For our space I wanted a soft but rustic style.  I found some simple jars to place down the middle of the table and filled them with these little delicate flowers from my grandma’s garden. For the rustic elements to offset the softness I used some rustic wood bowls and filled them with bread.

I chose a simple lunch of salad from the garden decorated with edible flowers and yummy homemade bread from our local bakery. For dessert a simple blueberry galette was served on a simple wood charger.

String lights always make things a little more fun! They had a variety of these from the black cords shown here to all sorts of great colors. 

The chairs are the perfect accent to the table. Simple clean lines with an antique finish, these are definitely a new favorite! 

I loved finding these ball jar style glasses that you can write your guests name on. So fun. I used small marble cutting boards for the water bottle and to cut the lemons for our drinks. Stripe napkins of blue and tan stripes add that little touch of summer (and my love of stripes continues).

I hope you challenge yourself to a small space refresh in your own home. Have fun putting pieces together and think outside the box for uses for them, get creative and find pieces that are versatile and can be passed down over the years, and always remember it doesn’t have to be big to be beautiful!!
