Voila!

4 Oct

A few weeks ago, Emily contacted us for help with her backyard patio.  She was hoping to put the finishing touches on the space before a large family event so we had to select items that were available quickly.  See more of her before details HERE.

I was so excited to see the “after” pictures of her patio and couldn’t wait to share them.

Here is the BEFORE picture of the patio. The new cushion fabric was great but the area looked unfinished and lacked a cozy feel.  The furniture arrangement also needed a little rearranging too.

AFTER:  By relocating the chairs, the space feels more open and looks more balanced.

We added a simple outdoor rug that compliments the color from the bricks and stone table tops.  It helps to ground the space and create more of a social area.

I LOVE the pillows that Emily went with, the colors are perfect and the pattern looks great year round. The green garden stools are also a great addition and can be used as accent tables or extra seating.

She used down inserts in all of the pillows because the patio is protected from the weather. A great idea for an outdoor space that is used daily, standard outdoor pillows can be stiff so the down creates more of a cozy place to lounge.

    Do you perhaps know the name of the fabric she used on her furniture?
