We love a house with a patio. We cannot imagine having a house without one. At our last house I went bright, fun, and colorful. With our new house, I decided to do something a little different. I guess you could say more subdued , sophisticated, with a rustic comfy spin. It is still a work in progress. My dream patio would be a mixture of Moroccan with an Italian flair. Strange I know! (I told Hubby that and he said it might work globally, but he would have to see if it would work in our home!)
Our patio is more of a three fourths living room. It backs up into our living and dining rooms because of the sliding glass doors. So if we ever want to throw a party, all we have to do is throw open all the doors and presto a great flow space. Nice!
I decided to bring a carpet outdoors. Since it is covered, I am not worried about the elements damaging it. As you can tell, the back of the patio can be seen in both the living and dining rooms. I want to find some stained glass windows to hang from the ceiling. That would be a great rustic addition.
For each chair, I grabbed some old pillows that I had in a closet and added a comfy feel. The throws are just Ikea ‘specials’.
As expected, I stuck with MY color, blue.
The table is draped with a piece that we picked up on a trip to Switzerland and a bowl from Turkey. Easy to switch out.
This is the piece I am most unsure about.
This hangs above the fireplace. Hubby thinks it is the best thing ever. It is unique for sure. I am hoping it will grow on me.
We have been spending a lot of weekend evenings out here. With the weather just perfect, music playing we have all of our meals out here. We love it! I am excited because of the fireplace, we will be able to enjoy this space well into the Fall.
