It’s time to decorate a patio! Our patio! Yay! Right now it is a clean slate and I love a clean slate to work with! Our patio is tucked under our sunroom so it has a roof. And it opens up to beautiful views of our country golf course. Today I’m sharing our basic plans for this pretty little area!
The inspiration for our patio are these two substantial chairs we brought with us from Stonegable…
The chairs have deep comfy navy and white cushions and they are the color inspiration for the patio!
Because blue and white can look a bit nautical I added caramel and a touch of spring green to the color palette.
Our patio is not huge! About 14 X 14. So I’m pretty sure not everything will fit. I might need to find another option for a coffee table.
So I created a vision board to have a good visual perspective as I decorate this outdoor living space!
I think one of the most fun parts of decorating is creating a vision board to help me see all the decor and how it works together before it is actually a reality!
Do you create a vision (or mood) board before you decorate? You should try it if you don’t.
There are so many pretty things to decorate a patio with! It was hard to choose!
But here’s what I’m thinking right now…
The porch has a ceiling so our decorating plans include stringing outdoor party lights across it. And maybe we will add a modern ceiling fan too.
The side of the patio opened to the golf course gets evening sun so we are also looking into some type of solar shade to pull up and down. Preferably on a remote!
The idea in my head is to line up pretty pots filled with flowers and herbs on the sitting walls.
I think they will make such a wow factor backdrop for the sofa and chairs!
I have a couple of these handsome blue pots filled with spring flowers on my front porch. I’ll probably get a few more and mix them with taller black ones.
