Sneakity Peek: Our Patio


{Our patio coffee table.. full of our Early Spring Gardening projects}

We finished our patio last month, turning it into a little outdoor family room, and we've been loving it out there!!  Thanks to the sectional we got from Home Depot, it feels like we expanded our house.  Along with a bunch of other bloggers, we participated in the Home Depot Style Challenge:




Our patio photos will be up tomorrow morning on Home Depot's blog (9 AM/ Thursday May 2nd) where the entire before & after can be viewed.  Because we took the photos about a month ago, I have been dying to share them with you, so can't wait for you to see it!!

The inspiration for how we styled the shoot came from my old French carrot gravure we have hanging in our kitchen...


It was fairly chilly out when we took our photos and so I used early Spring Veggies and took color cues from the Spring greens & oranges in the carrot chart.

I'm off for the day but hope you enjoyed the little sneakity peek...  I'll be back tomorrow with the link to share the full before & after!  In the meantime, there are so many great patio & porch redos on the Home Depot blog right now from all of the other bloggers, so go here to see them!

Hi Lauren, love the sofa and rug, textiles and yard! We are very seriously considering purchasing this outdoor sectional....but would love your input on one thing: do the chairs hook together and if they don't, do they move around a bunch...we don't want that! Thanks so much if you could respond! :) Julie

Start with inspiring tips on ways to transform the patio you already have. If you want to add more seclusion to your patio space, turn to our garden tour of a peaceful retreat that offers plants, accents, and more. To make your yard the perfect family-gathering spot, we have design tips and ideas so you can create the patio of your dreams.
