We’re havin’ a heat wave here in the Chicago area. Our temps went from hovering around zero degrees to a balmy 40 degrees almost overnight! In honor of our weather improvement, I’m featuring a backyard patio lounge by DeGoey Designs that’s perfect for entertaining a small group or just hanging out with your significant other.
The mini sectional looks comfy and cozy and I love how natural grasses are wedged behind the sofa, softening the look of the fence. I would’ve never thought to do that.
Check out the coffee table – the top opens up to reveal a place for storage. Or in this case, a bucket of ice which holds favorite beverages. It reminds me of my family room coffee table.
A wheeled bar cart provides space for food, drinks, and anything else that might fit. The hanging baskets add to the garden vibe. I like how the wood art is affixed to the exterior wall of the house. It’s like adding artwork on a wall inside your home.
Candles are placed inside painted wire orbs for lighting and ambiance. It’s a good thing the votives are tucked inside glass so the flames don’t burn the grasses.
Lots of potted plants create a tropical vibe while a corner patio fence adds privacy. An outdoor rug makes the backyard patio lounge feel like a room inside your house. I really like the look of this and now I’m thinking how I can create something similar on my deck by the pond. I need to stop looking at inspirational photos before I go broke!
