When you think of an outdoor living space
what comes to mind?
A dining area with an old farmhouse table surrounded by french bistro chairs…
or a seating area or lounge area for relaxing on the patio…
or maybe a spot for an afternoon nap on a chaise?
We are fortunate to have a large area for entertaining and outdoor living
so all of these areas come to mind for my space.
I was so excited and appreciative to have been given
an incredible design challenge opportunity…
To create a backyard living space that was
A room outside for spending time with family and friends…
for entertaining and for relaxing.
Something much like a design I would create inside my home…
but using items that you can purchase from a specific store
to make over the space.
For someone who is used to finding flea market treasures
or a piece here and there collected over time to use in my rooms-
Creating a space out of ready to purchase items
and giving it an instant lived in feel was a bit different
but soo much fun!
Here is what the backyard looked like
~The Dining space~
Shabby and vintage inspired…
florals and ruffles…
French bistro chairs wearing a chippy finish,
galvanized bins & painted urns filled with gorgeous flowers
~The Sitting area~
Vintage inspired red floral toile
mixed with drop cloth & needlepoint pillows
& dark woven wicker.
A cozy sitting area to kick back and relax…
with a charming petite fire pit for warming your hands or roasting marshmallows
The gravel and beach areas are warmly lit by the soft glow
from vintage inspired oil lanterns.
Your toes sinking into the warm sand while
stretching out a chaise…
So, any guesses as to where these design elements came from?
I’ll be sharing where you can find these fantastic pieces
and more pictures and details soon!
