Today I’m finally revealing my outdoor space! Between lots of rain and finding the right way to have shade on the patio and all, it took me a bit to get it all up and ready!
Our house has a back patio and an area covered with grass, where we have the pool and the trampoline. The rest is all paved and the front patio is all closed in as well. In Spain, houses aren’t as open as in North America. If you drive by our house on the street, you can’t see the porch and front patio at all, it’s all closed in and very private. I can’t really decide, what I like better. I used to like our open front in Canada and how it looked, yet we only always used the porch, not really the grass area in the front, cause we preferred more privacy. Here, on our street, it looks pretty boring, all fronts are kinda the same, as they are all closed in with walls, but I must say, we do enjoy every single square meter we have, it’s all private and we like that. You open the door to our property and then there is the front patio which I will be showing another time, and from there you go in and around the house. Today I’m showing you our back terrace.
This is how it looks when you step out the living room doors. I bought this sofa last summer and we love it and relax on it all the time. You can see my painted pillows on it and I like how it looks!
Attention, bunny photo bomb! He just has to be everywhere!
I hung curtains around the terrace to have shade, it gets so hot and like this it stays at least a bit cooler…plus I like how it looks and the summerly feel that comes with it…
In the back you can also see my little table that I gave a new look for my nephew the other day. Out here is the perfect spot to be creative I think!
Here I used the two pallets I still had laying around. I gave them a good cleaning and just got a thick seating cushion for the top. I must admit, I was too lazy to do anything fancy with the pallets, this was the easiest way to use them right now. It’s actually comfy and the girls like to hang out there. I made the two plant stands and it gives it a bit of a frame….[and I know where to put down my glass of wine when we sit there at night] 😉
I’m really lovin’ all the blue and white accents this summer.
I hope you enjoyed the little tour of my relax zone, my outdoor space part 1! You can find us laying on that sofa most of the time, I enjoy it a lot!
