This patio refresh pepped up my sad patio with added functionality, some subtle pops of color, and amazing texture.
I started by swapping the cushioned loveseat out for two adirondack chairs — since these dry faster there would be no more soggy cushions ruining the party.
I then added an outdoor rug to give the space a pop of color and a cozy feel. The rug is quick-drying and will make the space more comfy for bare feet.
Next I added in a set of stacking coffee tables. The varied heights mean plenty of space for swapping in tabletop elements as needed. I created a tabletop planter fire pit as a focal point for now, and the double table means there is still space to serve up snacks or set drinks.
A side table between the chairs add extra functionality and I included a teak potting station as a versatile piece of furniture we can also use as a drink serving station.
This space needed shade — especially in the evenings — so I styled in a tilting umbrella that's lightweight enough it can be easily moved throughout the day as the sun shifts. I love the texture the fringe trim gives and the light and airy feel of the white canvas.
To complete the space, I included a knit pouf for extra seating and as a footrest, some outdoor pillows for some more texture and color, outdoor lanterns with battery-powered flicker candles, and a couple plants as finishing touches.
