Since all the main furniture is neutral-the table and chairs, the swing, the gazebo-it allowed for a bold pop of pattern with the rug and the pillows.
And you can see how there's no step down from the patio into the grass, it just floooowwws.
I have wanted to put out these thrifted plant stands for years, and they look great now that there's a patio for them to stand on. Imagine that garage stuccoed.
Inspired Living for giving me the heads up on this Frontgate rug. It is exactly what i had in mind for this space.
Trifecta of backyard gorgeousness. Listen to your partners sometimes. Sometimes they might be right. Sometimes.
Obviously this is before the rug, but we were testing out the lighting. So cute, right?
These are just strings of globe lights attached with electrical tape to the hard structure. This, too, has held up for a few years. Hopefully i'm not jinxing anything with talk like this!
Bold, graphic, colorful, lush. Finished. Never thought these words would describe my backyard.
Ready for summer and outdoor living, right here.
