Are you ready to witness the transformation of a simple patio into a captivating space that will leave you in awe? The finished patio, with its exquisite tile, has become a place of pure joy and delight. It's now the perfect spot to sit, relax, and entertain your friends and family.

A Refreshed Look for Editorial Appeal

After the initial styling with 100% Target products, we wanted to take it up a notch. House Beautiful.com caught wind of the story and we wanted it to look even more editorial and styled out. The lemon/lime trees didn't pop as much as we had hoped, so we decided to plant them in the garden and bring in stunning climbing roses and flowering trees instead.

A Perfect Blend of Comfort and Style

While most of the furniture remains from Target, we switched out the dining chairs for a fresh look. The loveseat, known for its exceptional comfort and easy cleaning, remains a favorite. We brought out a couple of indoor pillows, including the black and white with tassels from Target and a round blush linen from Canvas Home. To add a touch of elegance and coziness, we borrowed a stunning throw from Lost and Found LA.

Perfect Accents to Enhance the Atmosphere

The copper stool adds a touch of sophistication and accentuates the blue/taupe/black and blush color scheme. Although it is intended for indoor use, we couldn't resist placing it on the patio. Its allure enhances the overall ambiance of the space.

Adding Vintage Charm to the Patio

A French marble table was discovered just before the shoot, and its antique elegance breathed life into the patio. This table, which was initially borrowed, has now become an integral part of the space. Its functionality as a food/buffet table and the additional counter space it provides make it a valuable addition.

Stylish Dining and Relaxation Spaces

We initially used matching club chairs for the first shoot but decided to switch things up for a more edgy and cool vibe. The black Windsor chairs and peacock chairs brought a unique touch to the space. However, we eventually went back to the comfort of the club chairs, reserving the black Windsor chairs for dinner parties due to their stackable nature and easy storage.

Whimsical Elements to Delight the Senses

The wood bird sculptures add a touch of whimsy to the patio. Despite their price, they were a must-have to create a heavy dose of whimsical charm. These whimsical elements, combined with the natural surroundings, set the tone for a truly enchanting outdoor experience.

Creating a Lived-in Feel

The table was styled with a combination of items already owned, such as the pitcher/vase and lantern, along with a few additions to give it a more lived-in look. The copper shaker from Nickey Kehoe, the runner from Lost and Found, and the black and white blanket and wood beads from Target all contribute to the cozy and welcoming atmosphere.

Magical Tile for Effortless Style

The tile proves that investing in one high-impact element, such as tile or wallpaper, can make decorating the rest of the space a breeze. By choosing the right style for your house, you can easily incorporate affordable and big-box pieces that still maintain a special and distinctive look. Wallpapering or adding an amazing pattern can truly transform any space.

A Bar Cart for Effortless Entertaining

The bar cart finds its place on the patio with grace and style. Accessorized with a basket from Heath, lanterns from Target, an antique vase, a colander from Nickey Kehoe, and an array of pretty bottles of wine, it stands as a symbol of effortless entertaining. The cute mushroom ornaments add a playful touch to the overall design.

Luscious Blooms to Delight the Senses

The floral arrangements created for the patio combine the elegance of peonies with vibrant wildflowers and sweet peas. A soft color palette is punctuated with darker flowers to create a visually stunning display. Beautiful stone pots from Lincoln Avenue Nursery house the climbing roses, shrubs, and vines, adding a touch of natural beauty to the patio.

A Space for Culinary Delights

While plans for a built-in BBQ are in the works, this summer calls for a temporary solution. Either the BBQ will be pulled up to the patio or the cooking will take place directly in the garden. Whichever option is chosen, delicious meals and outdoor feasts are guaranteed.

A Special Thank You

A special thank you to Erik and Emily, my incredible styling assistants who went above and beyond, from planting rose bushes to taking care of every other essential task around the house. And, of course, a big shoutout to Tessa Neustadt for capturing the beauty of the patio even on a dark and gloomy day.
