My Patio Style




It's official.  I have the best readers ever!! You all were so amazing when it came to the support & lovely comments for our new Outdoor Oasis.  This was one of our most challenging projects, so your kind words made the work that much sweeter.  Plus, we finally got to break it in on Mother's Day & actually sit down have a cocktail & just relax, if only for a minute.


You know after each challenge I always share the dirt on where each & every item came from.  This year is no different.  Almost every single item did come from the Home Depot this year.  Two of my favorite finds were the Garden Stools & Embroidered Pillows.  They are both so chic & timeless.  Love...  The beaded pillow is an Indoor Pillow, but we can take it out on special occasions.

I wish I could say that I reupholstered the cushions myself, but I know when to say I can't do something.  Sewing is definitely one of my weaknesses & with so many other projects going on I sent these babies to my favorite Upholsterer.  I used the Premiere Prints Outdoor Vertical Stripe Fabric in Ebony from OnlineFabricStore.  At less than $9 a yard, it really is a fabulous quality fabric & a really chic look.  I akso wanted to switch up the tailored appearance of the sofa cushions & went with multiple knife edge pillows for the back.  This completely transformed the look of the sofa & gave it the custom look I was going for.  I love that when reupholstering you can create whatever you want.


The Boxwood & Grass Orbs were such a find!! I picked them up at Homegoods & they actually light up.  There is a battery pack on the inside that is a little difficult to get to, but totally worth it for parties.  I simply tied on some generic rope from Home Depot & looped them over the existing tree limb.

The stone artichokes were also a great Homegoods find.  And the large glass/brass lantern was one of those 90's foyer lights from Goodwill. I took out the lighting mechanism & plan to use it for large candles, or maybe even a terrarium.

I'll be back with more details tomorrow.  


OnlineFabricStore.net did provide me with the fabric.  But the opinions on the fabric are my own.

  1. if any of your readers are interested...i got 20x20 pillow covers that look EXACTLY like that black/white fabric at ikea for something like $5 or $6!! i'm pretty sure it's not outdoor fabric...but if you want a few pops of black and white to throw on chairs when you head outside or company is coming...they are perfect...and so sewing required! your space looks AMAZING!!! :)

  2. I have orbs like that too but mine don't light up and I brought them from Germany years ago because I couldn't find them around here. Great find.
    HomeGoods is the BEST

  4. This space is just amazing. I was wondering - would you be willing to share the information for your upholsterer? I haven't found a good one in Atlanta yet and would love recommendations!

  6. I adore the embroidered pillows. Can't believe they are from the Home Depot! I have also found the exact black and white striped fabric at Ikea for very cheap. It is not outdoor fabric but is good quality. I used it for window treatments. xo

  8. I love this entire space. One of my favorite pieces is the old 90's light fixture used as a lantern. I still have one hanging that is the verdigris color. I would love to pull that down and take it outside. Thank you for sharing such cute ideas.

  11. So many wonderful things about your outdoor space! Love the boxwood globes - and my eye was instantly drawn to that Goodwill find - gold and glass! When I looked at the first post - I couldn't get over the silver and gold bocce balls. Haha. Who even has outdoor games that are chic?! Oh - that's right, you do! :)

  12. So many great details! The black and white striped fabric was such a great choice and makes such a nice statement!

  13. Great job! That black shed made all the difference. So elegant and inviting. I'd be happy to just sit there and do nothing. Just admire! Black & white with green surroundings is the best outdoor combo ever!
