I’ve got the interior semi under control for the remodel, just waitin’ on some samples and the ol’ post office TO DELIVER MAIL THAT THE EMAIL SAYS HAS BEEN SITTING THERE FOR TWO DAYS. When it’s all said and done, there’ll be three patios – off the living room/kitchen, master bedroom, and the new addition (den). The outdoor areas are waaaaaaaay down on the list of things I care about and/or have time to think about, but one must have a basic idea of the patio designs when one’s home has floor-to-ceiling windows. I love indoor/outdoor living, especially all the gigantic sliders we’re putting in; with that said, since the outdoor design significantly impacts the indoor design, and vise versa, I want the patio furniture to compliment the furniture we choose for the inside. So I put together a basic plan for the outside. What do ya think – the exterior of our home is painted black so I’m kinda digging the black+wood sofa and lounger. And how friggin’ cool is this playhouse. That cute, little flower box kills me. I think it would be so fun to let Isla pick some herbs or veggies to plant in there. Basically, I’m envisioning lots of natural green along the perimeter of the patios – I want the basic vibe to be simple and relaxing – a place to read, work, play, and entertain with ease.
