I’m so happy that patio season is back! It’s oddly one of my favorite areas of the home to talk about. I worked for an outdoor luxury furniture company which is where I gained my appreciation for a well designed outdoor living space. You’ve probably started hearing the term, “indoor-outdoor living” being used more in today’s climate and that’s because homeowners (like us) are wanting their patios to be a clear extension of the home’s interior style. We LOVE spending time outside with the pups, cooking and cocktail sipping. So naturally, the patio is just as important as any other room inside your home. Today I’m showing you a sneak peek of what I’m planning for our new back patio, and where you can find some great outdoor patio furniture to create a space you love this season!
Longtime readers, I hope you’re comfortable with change! Since we are building a new home, I will yet again be redoing the back patio! I was SO hoping that my outdoor sectional would carry over to our new covered patio. However, the layout (which is long and slender) just won’t work for what I am envisioning. See what I mean?
New House. New Plans.
We will be mounting a TV on the wall, so it’s important that the outdoor seating arrangement is optimal for all to view the television. Yes, it’s the South and yes we design our homes around football season activities.
Motion Seating for Outdoor Patio
I am planning to have 4 upholstered swivel chairs all facing each other with a small coffee table in the middle. I love the idea and option for a conversational seating arrangement that allows for a full 360 view of the backyard, tv, etc.
Here is some of my current back patio decor inspiration. Hey, a girl can dream…
The reality is, outdoor furniture can be expensive. But your outdoor space should be a true extension of your home, so my best suggestion is to spend some time and money investing in its beauty. Nothing makes me happier than hanging outdoors in comfort! Shop my design below + more great outdoor patio finds!
