So… life has been crazy lately. A little drama at my day-job and just “real-life” caused me to take an unexpected hiatus… but not to worry… I’M BACK!
I thought there was nothing more appropriate for my homecoming than a new installment of Here & Now and today is all about getting in the 4th of July spirit.
I love this idea. So simple and effortless, but so cute!

How beautiful are these parfaits?!? Anything this pretty has to taste delicious.
I love the idea of painted mason jars. You can buy these or make them yourself… brilliant!

Ahhh, July 4th… BBQ, fireworks, fun in the sun, and most importantly, a day off of work :). In honor of Independence Day, I thought I’d focus on an outdoor space and keep things festive with a red, white and blue color scheme. I’m not one to embrace the ‘Yankee Doodle’ literal interpretation, so here’s my take on the patriotic patio.
Whether designing an indoor or outdoor space, I love to mix different styles to create a space that feels unique and inviting. Here’s how I brought the space together:
First I brought in rustic and nautical elements. The rustic items play off of the existing horizontal wooden panels and preserve the natural feel of the outdoor space. The nautical pieces hint toward the waters that lie beyond the infinity pool.
Next I brought in modern and contemporary touches both of which add pops of color. The modern elements follow the architectural details of the home, while the contemporary elements tie everything together creating a cohesive and functional space.
So, that’s my take on the patriotic patio. Cheers to mixing design styles to create a one-of-a-kind space, and showing patriotism all summer long.
Happy 4th of July!
