Our Backyard Oasis!

This will be our first summer in our new house with the new pool!! We made sure to get saltwater and a heated pool so we could open it early in the season and keep it open later in the fall. I wasn’t sure if Emma would like the pool or decide she is an “inside girl” which is what happened last year – but we cannot keep her out of the water!! And thank goodness too – with COVID still in full for here, she doesn’t have much of a social life and the pool gives her a way to expend her energy.

Decorating the outdoor spaces has been super fun! We found these super cute fringe umbrellas – just the right amount of fun without going full boho with the style. Just classic, neutral and relaxed. The patio furniture was an Overstock find and very affordable given how large and high quality everything is. I am positive it will last years. Next step – outdoor curtains!

Hey There!

I'm Alexis - the goofy chic behind Curio Press. We just built a house in St Louis, MO and I am juggling being a mom, wife, small biz owner, and trying my best to get this house to look like a home. If that wasn't enough I battle chronic autoimmune issues everyday. I'm so glad to have you along for this crazy journey!
