Trending on Remodelista: 5 Essentials for Outdoor Entertaining

June 21, 2019

For their “Summer Kitchens” issue, Remodelista editors revealed the elements of stylish outdoor entertaining.

1. A Pretty Linen Tablecloth

Above: No, you don’t need a tablecloth, but adding one makes a gathering feel more special. We love this tablecloth, unearthed by Julie, from Once Milano. See Object of Desire: New Summery Table Linens from Once Milano.

2. Extra Seating

Keep lightweight stools, like the Frosta stools from Ikea (at right), for unexpected dinner guests. See the rest of this summery kitchen in Kitchen of the Week: A Photographer’s Flexible Studio Kitchen in Ojai Valley (And an Outdoor Shower, Too). Photograph by Victoria Pearson.

3. Nesting Bowls

5. A Breathtaking View

Not every outdoor space is going to have the views that Tenuta Borgia has, but a well-placed flowering shrub, like this bright bougainvillea, does wonders for lifting moods. To see the rest of this beautiful rental, see Vacation Dreaming: Elegant Simplicity on the Italian Island of Pantelleria.
