With all the lovely weather we have had recently my mind has been buzzing with ideas for my outdoor space. I would love to create an outdoor living room on the back patio next to my garden shed. A stylish, comfortable place for casual dining and relaxing.
I want to make sure my space transitions gracefully from my alfresco eating area on the patio near the house, to the lawn, to the outdoor living room. So, I'm going to go for a similar colour palette to my alfresco dining but will tone down the red and green and add more white to make a softer pastel palette.
On my wish list for an outdoor living room is a white bench with lots of scatter cushions, subtle lighting, a bistro table and chairs, and an open fire. I dream of snuggling up on the bench at night toasting marshmallows!
Here are a few of my inspirational tears for colour and theme:
Have a sweet day!
