April showers bring May flowers, right? Because if that’s the case, we wish April a fond farewell (you were slightly too cold for us in NYC) and May a wonderful welcome. May means Memorial Day Weekend, warmer days and lots of time outside. Our May Must Haves this month are focused on our desire to spend all our days in our backyard, picnicking away.
You’ll get a healthy mix of fun textures, wonderful colors and a lot of whimsical pieces that we want in our living spaces right this second. Check them out below! (featured image via World Market)
WallCandy Chalkasaurus Decals – 2Modern $56
If you or your kids must write on the walls, then these peel-and-stick decals are a perfect fit for a petite paleontologist’s space. But really, it’s a wonderful addition for any child-at-heart.
Maple Clip Tree Quartet – HORNE $445
If we remember correctly, this home decor design was successfully funded in Kickstarter! It’s nice to see this configurable organization system available on HORNE.
Handmade Batman Vinyl Wall Clock – Gadget Flow $70
We cannot deny the nerdy, superhero-obsessed fangirls within us. This beautiful vinyl clock in the shape of the Batman symbol makes our heart go pitter-patter.
Highland Knot Birch Trays – Serena & Lily $28 – $38
These serving trays would be perfect to serve those cocktails to the patio during the summer time, and the color-pattern combination is simply divine!
Chalkboard Wall Planter – Williams-Sonoma $140
Vertical gardens are all the rage, but this could bring your kitchen wall to life! We love the stark contrast of the greens with the black board.
Dotted Porcelain Hurricanes – West Elm $19 -$49
These hurricanes are an excellent way to bring your candlelight outdoors. They will literally glow in the evening while protecting your flames from the elements!
Round Woven Coffee Table – Pottery Barn $399
Doesn’t the handwoven seagrass just scream summer? A great way to freshen up your living room for the season.
Table in a Bag – Crate&Barrel $60
We’re dreaming of taking this convenient picnic basket to Central Park this Memorial Day Weekend. If we don’t have to eat our food off the grass, we’re happy.
OXO Mango Pitter – Gadget Flow $14
We’re munching on mangoes like it’s our job right now, and life would be much easier if the pit wasn’t in the way. This mango pitter just answered our wish!
Pivot Power Mini – Quirky $25
Quirky’s Pivot Power was a dream come true, and now they’ve come out with a portable version that also has USB ports! Perfect for folks who hate carrying their adapters around with their USB wires.
Antigua Outdoor Bar – World Market $400
We can’t spend all our time outdoors without an outdoor bar! (Well, we can; it would just be inconvenient to go in and out all the time.) This beautiful outdoor bar is the epitome of form and function.
