home decor – patio

Considering it is officially spring, our patio space has once again become my focus. Let the outdoor living begin! Our loft was designed to be an indoor / outdoor space. It’s one of my favorite things about our home. When we bought the place the previous owners were nice enough to leave behind an outdoor couch, coffee table and a slew of planters- which was amazing because we had zero outdoor furniture when we moved in.The only problem…none of it is really our style. Our loft is very modern and all of it is rather traditional looking. Because of this I have been wanting to give the patio a makeover. The only things we have added over the last two years…a few bright green planters (which Brian has begun planting his dream garden in), a grill, an umbrella & Franks “special” patch of grass.

Current patio space…

My new vision for the patio…

modern furniture with bright pops of color!! Oh and a designated garden area for my love.

Guest post by One Part Gypsy

11 Jul

Today’s guest post is from Rachel of One Part Gypsy– not only is she an incredibly talented photographer and creative director but she also happens to be my dear friend and cohort in crime on the across the country adventure (her pictures from the trip were amazing- you must check them out if you haven’t!). Enjoy her post on Summer goodness!

…..

Summer is as summer was…

June gloom seems to have passed over here, and the bright sunny mornings make me want to play hooky and hang at the beach all. day. long.

I think that’s what I love about summer most: the predictable combo of sand and sun (and perhaps some good company!) always equaling a perfect day.

Hope you all are enjoying summer as much as these guys are!
