The best investment we made this year….was new patio furniture. How we had lived here for so long without anything besides an outdoor dining table and a small loveseat tells you how much time we spent hanging out on our back patio. Zilch.
After perusing all the catalogs for the best deals and the right look, we opted for these pieces from Ballard Designs. They complimented our dining table without being “matchy matchy” and were much less than the sets I coveted from Janus et Cie.
The pillows with the green Chinese symbol are from HB Home…and though not for outdoors (we bring them in most nights) they help this area feel like an extension of our home.
Most evenings at dusk (my favorite time of day), you can find me outside with my homemade limeade drink, listening to music, watching the fireflies and grateful that I finally have someplace to sit.
Do you have a favorite outdoor area?
