It's Patio Season! 

Last time you saw my outdoor space (here & here) I was just starting to add furniture and plants. This year  I wanted to make it a little more cozy and less sterile when it came to the outdoor wall. The off white, bare walls just weren't doing it for me and I was ready to give them a little love. So I, with some help from Command outdoor clips and hooks gave the space a much needed upgrade. While it's not perfect and I would love to go 'bigger' it's a nice step in the right direction. 

First, I ordered some faux ivy with fairy lights ($10!) to create a climbing ivy wall. 

It was surprisingly easy and took a couple of hours from start to finish. I started by going from top to bottom and then across for the window with the Command outdoor light clips. Waited 30 minutes and then gently slid the ivy  vines into each clip. I went a little under 2 feet between each clip. I will say that you're going to want a smooth surface to work with, my wall is smooth and rough in places so some of the rough spots weren't sticking that great and ended up falling down so - opt for a smooth surface and save yourself some time and effort. 

After I got the ivy clipped in I started layering in the the fairy lights. After the fairy lights were up I added clips for the solar powered hanging lights along the window frame down the wall and across the balcony. 

Then the accessories! The Command outdoor stainless hooks hold up to 2 lbs. so I gathered some cute hanging accessories like woven feathers and baskets. Applied the hooks in spots that I decided needed a little pop and waited 30 minutes before hanging the pieces.  And voila! The wall was done. 

I added some plants, pillows, a blanket and got right to work getting cozy. 

The night time view is even better....
