Perfect Your Patio Style

Summer is upon us and, while the Dog Days will be here before we know it, the weather is currently absolute perfection and we all know what that means – it’s time to get outside and enjoy those blue skies with our BFFs, Baes, familias, and more!

To help you do that in style, we’re here to share outdoor accessories that will have your patio tables, outdoor kitchens, and bars ready for pool season in no time!


We just completed designing a home for a family who loves spending their free time outdoors and seeing the Wonderland that is their back yard, you can immediately understand why. From a swim-up bar to their very own lazy river, it’s the stuff dreams are made of and we wanted to make sure the surrounding patio spaces felt right at home.

The Casual Patio Table



This extra-long table can comfortably seat 12 of their nearest and dearest and the finish is stunning; we didn’t want to overshadow that so we opted to keep things simple. We love this outdoor runner, serving tray, decanter, and acrylic tumblers – because safety’s always first, am I right? Pop in some rosemary and a few beautiful, low maintenance succulents and you’re all set!

Formal Outdoor Dining


We’re in love with this table in the family’s outdoor entertaining space that’s slightly more formal! We used succulents here too for a dose of earthy color and we love that they’ve got more staying power than floral arrangements.

While color play is always fun, we decided to elevate the table with classic dinnerware that would look just as good inside as it does here. A linen table runner and coordinating napkins add an irresistible dose of texture and we were thrilled to stumble upon acrylic wine and water glasses that look just like the real deal!

Outdoor Kitchen Style


A few well-placed herbs in your outdoor kitchen not only look beautiful but they make it easier than ever to garnish that pizza!


You can’t beat this outdoor kitchen’s storage space. You can find a spot for serving pieces, wine glasses, dishware, and beyond!

Lounge Spaces


Ready, set, LOUNGE! Keep the same elements in mind when you’re designing outdoor seating areas as you would when designing inside – like offering multiple seating options and layering in multi-function pieces – and then kick up your feet and enjoy!

    what wood (and stain treatment) was used for cabinets and what surface was used for countertops? This is my dream kitchen (indoors!)
