Before the brutal winter hit this year we finally got a patio/deck built in our backyard. We had been meaning to do it for 2 years now, but things always came up and the summer would be over before we knew it so, we would post pone it to the following year.
I didn’t want to let another summer go by without a main outdoor living area, which is what led us to reaching out to builders in Oct/Nov. A plus to doing it off season was that we were able to get a better deal on labor and we were able to get someone pretty quickly.
With the official start of Spring only a couple of days away I’ve been itching to start getting some furniture for the space. It’s not a large space, but we have enough room to have a dining area and a seating/living area.
Here is a look that I’m currently loving:
Since it’s not a huge space I wanted to keep the furniture light on it’s visual weight. No big and bulky pieces for this space. Also with Hudson and a new little one around I wanted furniture that could easily be wiped and put out of the way if we want clear up some space and place the little kiddie pool on the deck/patio.
No.1: In love with this table and it’s mix of wood and colorful metal. Plus it’s collapsible and gets super slim in a matter of seconds.
No.2: Love these little french bistro chairs. Adore the pop of red and later on down the line I can add patterned seat cushions to them.
Now that dining area is taken care of we need to address a seating nook.
No.3: What is about yellow that just makes you happy! I love the idea of either two of these loveseats flanking each other or a mix of it with an occasional chair.With the slated backs we have the light visual weight I wanted and the cushions are slip-covered, which helps with kids.
No.4: Pillows always make me happy, which means I will be adding one or two of these outdoor pillows into the mix.
No.5: Love the idea of using a pair of these stools as coffee tables. They would be a good place to set a drink or two on and Hudson would love shoving things through the holes plus they can also be used as additional seating if needed.
No.6: Since this is going to be a seating area I’m going to want a nice cushy place for my toes. This rug is a perfect mix of all of the colors in both of my areas.
Ah! I can already feel the sun beating down on me. I’m still on the hunt so, we shall see what the end product looks like.
