Hello Tuesday, and all of you! I’m so excited to share a bit more of our outdoor space today. We just tied up all of the loose ends with the patio and our outdoor dining room is officially complete! I know I shared peeks of the house in this backyard makeover post, but I didn’t share the before photos. Our house used to be this greenish-grey color which never truly suited our style- so the fresh coat of Benjamin Moore pure white paint was pretty much cause for celebration. It’s a crazy difference isn’t it? I was jumping around like a schoolgirl when the paint was going up!
Since the patio was all concrete and stucco we wanted to bring in some organic elements with the potted plants (primarily these, these and these) and the Jardine bar from West Elm. Our amazing pal Ryan from Falling Waters Landscape helped us choose just the right plants- I especially loved his idea to put the tall spiky plants in the tall plant pots! The Ikea dining table was inexpensive and wonderfully simple. And the rug from Lulu + Georgia added the perfect graphic element to tie it all together and ground the space! I kind of got carried away with photos on this one, so there is a so much more after the jump. (I’m excitable, forgive me!) What do you think? It’s a pretty major improvement isn’t it?
