Getting our side patio ready for summer

Getting our side patio ready for summer

This giveaway post is sponsored by Arhaus

Iknew this little area had the potential to be our favorite outdoor spot to sip morning coffee or to watch the sun go down. But as I mentioned in my last post, we’ve had all kinds of drama, delays and “situations” while trying to get this space completed over the past two and a half years.

But this summer will kick off a whole new chapter! We are just a couple of weeks away from being able to say we have a fully finished patio (complete with a gate and railings, safety was a key reason we started this project in the first place!). So of course, I am SO EXCITED to set up our patio for summer this year. (Be sure to enter the Arhaus giveaway at the bottom of this post, you just might win a $500 gift card to get your summer space started, too!).

Getting our side patio ready for summer

Our family actually spent a lot of time sitting out here last summer and we loved it, even though some of the key elements were incomplete. There will always be more we want to do to improve this area, of course, but I can’t tell you how happy I will be to finally have a space that is safe so we can begin to host guests and outdoor gatherings.

So with a new season almost here, I’m thinking through the main things I want for our newly completed outdoor areas. For entertaining, I’m thinking flexible seating, storage and convenient spots to set food and beverages! One piece I am so thrilled we have been able to add to our space already is this amazing storage bench from Arhaus. It really transformed this whole conversation area the minute I set it up!

The bench is hitting all the marks for what I want in outdoor furniture, too. Arhaus product developers travel the globe working directly with skilled artisans to make such unique high quality pieces, many that will last for generations! They also utilize sustainable materials and have held a long standing commitment to never use wood from endangered rain forests. Our bench will serve us well for many different purposes, so I know I’ll love it forever!

I’ve discovered that this bench makes a great coffee table (add a tray to hold cups or plates as needed), but we can also put on the cushion at a moment’s notice to expand our seating. We can easily pull it up to a dining table or set it against a wall so it can become a darling accent bench.

It’s weather resistant and has storage, so it’s a perfect spot to stash our throw pillows or anything we want to put away. And, I can even imagine it being adorable inside at the end of a bed!

If you’ve been following along with our remodel, you may recall the patio area is located right outside of our kitchen. It’s a connecting point between our front yard, our backyard, and our kitchen. Dogs and people alike wander in and out through the Dutch door all day long. Because this area is able to be seen from inside the kitchen, too, I definitely want it to feel as inviting as possible.

We have lots of ideas for how our space might come together this summer, but our adorable new garden stool inspired me to pull up a couple of chairs! I already love it, it’s nice having a comfy new spot to read or chat.

I’m also loving the look of blue and white Sunbrella pillows here, the colors really tie in well with the kitchen.

I’m still planning to get some new outdoor rugs, plant some pots for greenery and seasonal color and maybe even add a few other pieces in the upcoming months. But letting the space evolve and improve over time is the best part, isn’t it?

Below you can see my current vision for the design elements in this space, featuring some of the items I selected from Arhaus as well as a few other items I really like. I love making a mood board because it can help you visualize the look you’re going for, even if you are going to get there over time!

  2. Lori

    Your outdoor area looks great! I hope to do the same type of enclosed patio at our new house!! The Wyatt Outdoor Storage bench is absolutely gorgeous and I love your idea of putting it at the end of a bed, which is exactly what I would do with it! Enjoy your summer!!

  6. patricia

    Your outdoor area looks very inviting. I would love the Arlo chaise lounge. I love to be outdoors at my mountain home after a long week in the office, and the wooden bench I currently use is falling apart. (That doesn’t stop me from trying to use it, though!) It would be lovely to have a comfortable place to relax with a good novel the weekends :-)

  7. Laureen Watts

    Love the umbrellas. So unique and perfect up against your privacy fence. The bench would be a perfect addition to our deck to store our ever growing collection of outdoor pillows.

  8. Carol

  54. Sandy Della Ripa

    I’m loving the neutral colors you’re using for your patio furniture. The rugs and pillows are my favorites! These colors will really complement the summer flowers and greenery that I’m sure you are planning to add!

  55. Jen Morris

    I’m in love with everything on their website! I would love the hand blown glass vase or the cream vase shown on your post. I have just the place for it!?Love your side patio Melissa! Good things are worth waiting for! We are hoping to get a roof built over our little patio-the wheels move slowly on great projects but will be worth the wait! ?

  56. BamaCarol

    Just beautiful! The wait is worth it. I would love that Hampton Rocking Chair to add to our porch. Just thinking about rocking and watching the sun set is so relaxing.

  57. BLBC

    So inviting; come, sit a spell and enjoy.

  58. Kelly

    I would love that storage bench! It’s so fun to imagine our outdoor space after looking at yours :)

  59. alysa

    So put together as usual. The bench is a great piece so versatile. Had no idea your side yard was giving you such heartache. You could never tell it was incomplete in your photos. You always make it all look good.

  62. Brittany M

    That Garden stool! I’d love one of those!

  63. Amy

    I love the Hamptons sofa. It is so pretty from the back as well. Which, for me, is important as the furniture on my patio is visible from all sides. Your area is coming together so well.

  64. Deana B

    I was so happy to read your posts about how long some projects take, we bought a house 3 years ago after renting it for 2 years. It has great bones and we love the location but the updating & projects can seem endless, and slow. So I was happy to read that sometimes progress is slow. We are transforming our pool area so I’d love to have the Waytt swivel Daybed, in weathered grey. I can see my 14 yo with her friends curled up on it poolside!

  65. Sharon Cheshire

    Your side yard looks fabulous! What a great sitting area right off the kitchen. Absolutely love that Wyatt storage bench!

  66. Judy

    What happened to the fountain you had out there?

  67. Robin

  70. Liz

    Your space looks so relaxing/love it. We are about to retire from the Military and with all our moves we have always had a lack of storage. So…I think the storage bench would be a lovely pick as a piece to settle down with – finally!

  71. Erma

    Would love the rocking chair. Just downsized to a smaller place and left my gardens behind. This could be the focal point for new space.

  89. Ashley

    I’d be thrilled to have either a new light for over our dining room table — maybe the Orson pendant — and/or some cushions to soften the edges at our outdoor dining area. We were able to make some improvements last year, but are on a bit of a spending freeze. :) We are the PNW too. No more beautiful place to be in the summer. Enjoy your new outdoor spaces!

  90. Missy Robinson

    I would love the Hamptons Outdoor Rocking Chair – or two! Love the outdoor space … good luck keeping the cushions clean!

    Wow this is darling. I remember last years post when the lot next door was empty and you did the patio but now with the new house you have still managed to get some privacy with the umbrella and the fence. Love it all. I cannot wait to see the backyard and all you have done there.

  99. Ceew

  119. Lori Howard

    One of our finest pieces that we ever saved for was an Arhaus sectional and it’s been almost 8 years and it’s still going strong! Their store show rooms always have a wonderful feel to them. I love your outdoor retreat! It’s the quaint, homey warm feel that makes a space a wonderful space. The bench has multi-functional uses plus the added texture it creates so it’s my favorite piece….well outside of Jack and Lily…total show stoppers there:0)…I hope my new patio will look as nice as yours this summer.

  120. LJ Jasper

    So many choices! Perhaps the driftwood stool or one of the rugs!

  133. Christine Meldrum

    I’d really like one of the puppies, to be honest! But if i can’t have one, I’d like one of those puff things that you can sit on, I’m afraid if I buy one, though, that my kids will use it as a weapon!

  134. Elizabeth Hatcher

    I love the outdoor rocking chair!

  135. Debbie

    So much to love! We are (hopefully) moving this Fall, so there are many things I want. However, my current patio furniture is about 20+ yrs. old, so I definitely need an update there. I LOVE the way your side porch turned out, it was worth the wait.

  136. Peggy

    I’d love a comfy and pretty pair of chairs for our front porch. Thanks for this opportunity!

  137. Sonja Diane Stouffer

  138. Lisa van den Brink

    I so enjoyed watching and reading what you were going to do with this space! It turned out amazing! I love the bench, it’s so versatile!

  139. Jodie McBride

    Beautiful yard! Wish I could be as creative as you. We have lots of bland spots in our yard. I can appreciate the beauty, just have a hard time seeing it visually. Thanks for the inspiration your blog brings me! I think the garden stool would look lovely on our deck, next to the lemon tree. Tootles

  140. Peg

  155. Heather

    I love the Wyatt outdoor sofa, it looks so comfy!

  156. Christina Daudelin

    How beautifully this all came together! Love the Arhaus collection – may favoites are the stool – artfully unique and functional, and I love the rugs – pulls together all the colors (I suppose even establishes the color scheme) and just finishes the space to be truly another “room” vs patio. Well done!

  157. Alissa Ong

    I love the storage bench

  158. Jessica

    So many beautiful things to choose from! I would love an outdoor fire pit! Also, the driftwood stool and low round poof are perfect!

  184. Yanira Garza

    So hard to not go wild at that place but if I had to choose, I’m dying to change the entryway light and the LEYLAND FLUSHMOUNT IN BRONZE is perfect! But the KAIRA 2’6″ X 8′ RUNNER would be great in my kitchen too!

    Those dogs are too cute!

    The outdoor rugs are perfect for the concrete floor. They don’t detract from the other colors but provide a subtle enhancement. No need for any floor treatment. Brilliant!

  204. Alissa Rieth

    I love the lantern on the ground between the chairs…so lovely!

  205. Kris H

    Melissa, I am so excited for you! Can’t wait to see your new deck. . . what an oasis y’all will have! But this side patio has had my heart ever since you first furnished it. (It’s the Dutch door, of course–who doesn’t want to go out a Dutch door to the space just beyond?)

    We have a large Arhaus showroom just about 30 minutes away, and I love looking there. I just visited their website, and I must say I love the old log rectangular fire pit (which is currently on sale for just $899 plus an additional 10% off!!). What a cool addition this would make to an outdoor seating area. Thanks for hosting the giveaway!
