The Bungalow

This week a few of our perennials started growing, formally announcing Spring is here! Backyard plans have been in full swing the past couple of weeks, with the bar/shed construction and landscaping direction being the main focal points. Now it’s time to start focusing on the furniture selection – my favorite part! After my initial shock over the cost of outdoor furniture (?!), I got to work creating a design board using Trina Turk’s Pisces fabric in Punch as my point of inspiration (rather appropriate as Pisces is my sign!). The backyard is a decent size so in addition to the pool, we added a tri-level deck to cost-effectively optimize the scale of the property and designate separate zones – outdoor living room, pool lounging, s’mores station and al fresco dining.

Do you have an outdoor living space? If so, how has the furniture held up? Salty beach air has me a little concerned!

  1. What a colorful and fun inspiration set! I actually have the CB2 elements table and love it. One thing I’d do differently is scrape the umbrellas and get a good awning instead. I have a small deck and when I got an umbrella I found it made my deck feel crowded and low.
