Transform a patio of any size into a full-fledged outdoor living room with just a few easy steps. Blogger and savings-enthusiast Corrine Stokoe updated her Southern California patio with some essential outdoor pieces complemented by a pergola, modern decor and a cool color palette.
“It takes two years,” my mom kept telling me when we moved into this new area, new house, new life in Southern California. And she was right. Two years to find our friends and our favorite restaurants and best beaches and parks that our kids loved most. And it has taken us about two years in our new house to make each room our own. The last space on the list? Our backyard.
We really wanted this backyard to be an inviting outdoor living space for our family to just chill together on a lazy Sunday evening, or with friends and a dinner. Since it’s kind of always summer here, it was especially silly of us to not utilize this beautiful backyard space for alfresco outdoor living.
Hayneedle had some of the prettiest outdoor furniture to pull the pergola area together, and all the little things to complete a cozy environment, from the striped pillows to the twinkling lights. It was simple to shop and see our outdoor alfresco ideas come to life, finally completing our picture of the perfect home!
Every day for four years I’ve blogged about finding the best deals on all the nicest things, and Hayneedle was the perfect place to find the modern alfresco furnishings we needed to make this backyard space come to life — without breaking the bank.
