new patio details

1 of 3

Aside from the abundance of new shade, one of my favorite features of the new patio is the light fixtures. They are reminiscent of wine barrel staves and I found them HERE.

shadow spokes

Along with their rustic looks, I love the overlapping spoke-like shadows they cast on the ceiling at night!

Here are some of the closeup details ….

loveseat detail

pillow detail

I bought the two Hampton Bay Walnut Creek loveseats and small matching ottomans online from Home Depot.

rug detail

I found the outdoor rug at Costco.

basket detail

The large wicker basket with the cool hardware, that I’m using as a coffee table, was picked at last week’s Sweet Salvage sale.

side table

The industrial side table came from Overstock.com.


ottoman detail

The super fabulous vintage crate, on casters, with a grain-sack cushion top, was a real find! It came from Rust and Roses, which is just down the street from Sweet Salvage.

olive basket detail

Oh, the two European olive baskets, on either side of the fireplace, are from Rust and Roses, as well.

cantera stone detail

Speaking of the fireplace, some lovely detail of the Cantera stone – from Stone Source.

mantle detail

pavers still to do

The one thing left to do is to reset the pavers around the fireplace and new columns. That will be done later on, when the workmen begin to place the pavers in the front remodel. We can easily live with it undone, until then. We have spoken briefly about having the concrete base raised so that you have to step up onto the patio area. I have searched online for “concrete raising Denver” and have seen the many options, so we know that it would be possible whilst the pavers are up. However, we are not 100% sure whether we want it raised yet. What we have looked into for our paving is an interlocking patio; I’ve seen some absolutely beautiful examples shown to me. I know that Action Home Servies are experts in Interlocking Woodbridge, so I’ll be sure to go to them if I decide to make my patio dreams come true.

We are also in the process of hunting down some new patio doors. A friend of ours sent over these cool patio doors for some inspiration. What do you think?

I can’t wait for the weather to cool down so we can take full advantage of our new space. I visited a few myrtle beach furniture stores recently and I’ve found a few more things that I would like to add to the patio. I don’t think we have enough seats at the minute but this is easily fixed! I’d love to have a huge communal sofa outdoors. Anyway, I’ve got lots of plans for the new space. First up – a Fall Craft Class in mid-October.

More details on that, to follow soon….very soon!
