Get Outside Already

Outdoor Furniture Roundup-1-Design Crush
Free-Standing Hammock

Have you been spending lots of time outside or are you holed up inside avoiding the heat? I’ve been doing a little bit of both, as well as avoiding some rainstorms by hanging out on my porch. (One of my favorite times to be out!) The key to enjoying the outdoors for me is making my yard just as livable as my house, which means furniture that carries over the same style and sensibilities. Peek at my backyard setup that I shared last year, then take a look at these stellar outdoor furniture pieces.

Noke U-Lock

Smart U-Lock-1-Design Crush

 

Not only is the Noke U-Lock easy on the eyes, it’s also brilliant. This bike lock allows you to unlock it with your smartphone, eliminating the worry of lost keys and forgotten combinations. You can also unlock it manually if your phone isn’t available, and an alarm sounds if anyone attempts to crack it open or mash up the keypad. The U-Lock works with iOS, Android, and Windows smartphones that include Bluetooth 4.0.

Sunnylife

Sunnylife-1-Design Crush

 

I’ve seriously been waiting since last August to talk about Sunnylife. Everyone looks forward to summer – and lazy days, poolside parties, the great outdoors, and al fresco meals – and all the things that go along with it. The folks over at Sunnylife are basically summertime experts who stock their shelves with everything you need to take the season to 11. Pool floats, outdoor entertaining, games, towels, umbrellas, and more. Take a peek at a few of my favorites!
