Is there anything better than spending time outside? Our patio is one of the most lived in areas in my home and we utilize the space year-round. Even in the heat of the Texas summer you can find us outside by the pool. Our patio area is not large by any means, but we do have a few separate living spaces. The outdoor grill/kitchen area, the dining area and our favorite space – the outdoor living area. It’s the perfect spot to enjoy a cocktail or a glass of wine and some great conversation. And, with the outdoor fireplace, it’s just as livable during the winter. When Frontgate reached out to us regarding a partnership, we knew the living area would be the place to start our outdoor living refresh.
When starting to plan for the redo, I began by making a wish list with my favorite items and then narrowed it down by what would actually fit in my space. The Grayson collection love seat is a great size for my space and with the lounge chairs from the collection it makes the perfect seating area for my outdoor living room. I added the matching ottoman for a coffee table/seating piece and a side table from the Avon collection. I knew I wanted to go light and bright, so even though there were so many options, choosing my upholstery fabric was easy. Choosing pillows was a lot harder! But blue was the color that attracted me, so that narrowed it down. I added an outdoor rug and some new fun and so comfy floats for the pool and we are loving our new outdoor space! We plan to be spending a lot of time here!
For any of you you who are in the Dallas/Ft. Worth area, Frontgate just opened their flagship store at the new Legacy West in Plano. It is stunning…go check it out as soon as you can!
