So one of our weekend projects was to start getting serious about our backyard. It's in need of a liiiiittle help. The grass, the patio, a place to store stuff. It's a big project. Have I mentioned that we have a pool? Not the garden style pool like at our old house but rather a more shapely "vintage" pool. It makes the design a little hard to work up. But I'm trying. And I think I've decided to go with the stone/grass look.
I love this photo above. We can find similar stones pretty inexpensively and the look is just down right visually pleasing. But I want the edges of the patio to kind of stagger some, almost like some sort of fell off. I know, it's hard to explain and hard to picture, and I was having a little trouble getting Josh to visualize it. And then I found this photo and about leapt out of my seat. Yes, yes, this was what I was picturing!!
So I'm feeling good that I've finally narrowed down the patio design. Oh, and speaking of the outdoors. We brought a little outdoors into our family room. Say hello to my fiddle leaf fig tree.
Love it. Now I need to find a bomb ass pot for her. I'm thinking magenta or maybe emerald green. Anyone seen anything around? Do you think I could just spray paint one without it looking all diy??
