Hello Everyone! This reveal post has been a long time coming. I actually worked on this pool and patio area last summer, and never had a chance to share it, so I thought that revealing it as part of The Happy Housie’s Seasonal Simplicity Series this week was perfect timing! I’m joining a group of talented women who’ve styled and photographed an outdoor space this week too- and they’re all stunning, btw- so don’t forget to check out the rest of the inspiration below. Ps.. If you want to see my backyard patio that I shared last summer, click here!
Last summer, I had the pleasure of the helping an amazing family map out a backyard pool and patio area before the contractors broke ground. We selected plans for a small pool house, determined placement, and selected finishes. It’s easy to blow a budget on hardscaping, so one of my tasks was to keep the stonework as minimal as possible. I didn’t want the space to feel closed in or claustrophobic after the fencing went in, so I planned out flower beds to sit right in front of the fencing. This allowed us to use less stone, while also giving everything a much more open feel in the end. And it also allowed for plenty of florally, soft plantings to contrast with the stonework. I love how everything turned out, and I’m so excited that I finally had the chance to style, photograph and share it with you guys! Here are the photos, and sources are in the sliders!
Today some of my friends have joined me to share their summer outdoor spaces with you.
