Our sweet old girl Tulip has crossed the rainbow bridge 🌈 (swipe to see her sweet face) -
-
-
She came to us as a 3 month old rescue pup with birth defects and the sweetest feistiest personality.  She saw us move into this house, add to our family and ran the pup pack. -
-
-
She never met a person or child she didn't love or would flop over for belly scratches for. She is so dearly missed ❀  I know you'll team up with Kaia and dive into a pool of cheese followed by a roll around in all the of the muddy spots you can find -

2 of our pups are snoozing in here as it's nice and cool, thanks to @tiltsmarthome blinds. #sponsored -
-
-
It used to get SO hot with the afternoon sun just heating up the house, but with these blinds I have been able to #getsmart by setting them to temperature sensitive settings!
-
-
-
They close when the temperature hits the level I selected in the app, which not only helps keep the bedrooms cooler but also my energy bill down.
-
-
-
Definitely check out @tiltsmarthome blinds if you are in the market for super easy to use, smart solar blinds!
-
-
-
And make sure to check out my stories to see the temp control settings in the app + watch how easy they are to use! -
-
-
I am thrilled with these so far and am loving them as are the younger human and furry members of the fam! #tilt

It's way down on color but a massive punch of pattern and I luurrvvee it. (Picture me karate chopping mixed with cha-cha-cha'ing πŸ’ƒ)

The Great Outdoor Living Event!!

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design I am beyond excited to share with you all today my updated and polished up all purdy back patio space! Β And not only that BUT I am linking up with several other talented ladies to their blogs for an awesome blog hop tour so you can make the rounds and get ALL kinds of outdoor inspo! Β Now that I’ve got you all sorts of excited I won’t delay….here’s our outdoor patio area!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design

Here’s a full shot of our back patio. Β We spend a TON of time out here from March to October so making it functional and pretty is definitely on my list every year.

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design Ikea applaro sectional world market rio mat fire table stool blue pink

Β The fab revamped ikea applaro sectional we painted this spring (see how we did it here) and believe it or not the only things I changed were getting a new rio rug mat(from World Market) and creating a centerpiece! It looks SO different though right?!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design table centerpiece decoration

Close up shot of the new centerpiece. Β It’s a bowl/wall hanging I picked up on clearance from Target, a tin platform (I already owned), a pink door wreath (I already owned), and a greenery ball I found at Home Goods!

The other side opposite the Ikea Applaro sectional, 2 chillin out chairs and a fuschia side table/stool!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design dining world market rio blue

Moving down the patio we have our dining area where I created a slight separation using 3 potted plants

The 3 potted plants I used to create a sense of separation between the sectional seating area and the dining area. Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  Β  (a hydrangea, lemon tree and lime tree)

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design dining space flowers

I picked up a new rio rug mat from World Market (which I love, SO easy to clean!!) and put together a faux flower basket on the step! Β We love having the table here right next to the grill as it helps with cooking and maneuvering food and dishes. Β The chairs are SUPER comfy too.

Fun summery tablescape! Β We painted the top of this table too since it had definitely seen better days, we just used the same paint as we did on the sectional and loungers.

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design rockers pink blue

Looking past the dining area I have my old blue rockers and on the right, the twin brother to the german biergarten bench I have in the house. Β It folds up flat for super easy storage too, extra bonus!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design rocking chairs bench pink blue decor

We love to just sit here and rock with coffee in the morning or wine at night. Β We also play frolfing (frisbee golf) by keeping myself and the hubs seated in the rockers while our partners (the older boys) move the stand wherever they want. Β They totally take advantage of that gigantic wisteria growing right in front.

Β outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design wisteria biergarten bench greenery purple pink

The vintage biergarten bench from Germany sits opposite the rockers and in front of the ginormous wisteria vines that have completely overgrown a pretty arched trellis I have hidden under there. Β It sure is gorge though!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design rocker chaise loungers bench bells pink blue

Here we’re looking through the rockers/bench area to the chaise loungers! Β You can see another World Market Rio rug mat here, I swear by these (at least as of now), you would think they would not be awesome to walk on but they are INCREDIBLY soft and squishy underfoot (and SO cheap last week they were marked down to $20 for a 6×9!)

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design chaise loungers fuschia white planters lemon tree lime tree swing chair

I created a bit of separation again using another lemon and lime tree and kept the look cohesive by using white pots just like the 3 on the other side!

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design fuschia pink loungers plant stand

There’s the fab plant stand I painted to match the loungers in the same post as the Ikea sofa (see link above), I added potted plants instead of actually planting anything as it gets so dry here small plants in a planter are very difficult to keep watered (and alive, at least that’s what I keep telling myself).

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design fuschia pink plant stand hydrangeas mixed baskets bouganvilla

Here’a a close up shot of all of the pretty flowers! Β I also put 2 glam hanging pieces in the top on either side to break up the shape and give it a little more of a presence.

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design chaise lounger hanging swing chair

Right next door to the chaises we have the most comfy hanging chair known to man, we actually race (and maybe fight over) this chair and who gets to sit here. Β It really is that comfortable! Β A pedestal side table sits next to it for drinks, books, phone, etc. Β And anchored on either end of the entire patio I have a light blue pot with a big rose bush which you see here on the right.

 

outdoor tour patio summer living space home decor interior design hanging swing chair

 

Another of those World Market Rio rug mats sits underneath the boss (swinging chair) and brings a lovely pop. We also have a big umbrella that lives in the corner and we just roll it into place when we want to use it!

 

outdoor tour patio living space home decor interior design summer

Here’s a shot looking back down the patio from the opposite direction. Β Swing chair down to sectional!

There you have it folks, the patio space as it looks right now. Β We actually use every area out here. Β It totally depends on what is going on and what we’re doing. Β If the kids are playing on the tramp or using water toys we sit in the chaises/swing chair. Β If we’re grilling or playing card games we’re at the dining/sectional areas and if we’re by ourselves and just want to chill it’s the rockers. Β Making it functional and beautiful makes spending time out here all that much more enjoyable. Β I hope you found some serious inspo/ideas here!

      Thank you! YES!! I love it, going rogue is the most fun! You must share pics and deets when you are finished, I can’t wait to see how it turns out!

    Well I have to mention that I LOVE your teal chairs!!! But I have to say that swinging chair is my FAV…I would be fighting over it too! Your space is so colorful and refreshing, it is beautiful. I never knew World Market had rugs so cheap, I am heading over to their website now!!

    • ttbousu
      July 2, 2017

      Thanks Susanne! It really is the most comfortable seat out there, sometimes we cram one of the little’s butts in there with me. The rugs I have in the post are the Rio Rug Mats, they are made from a plasticky material but they are so cushy to walk on in bare feet, water goes right through, rust washes right off (my dining chairs have rust on the bottom of the legs) and they won’t mold! The price makes it a no brainer! I have 4 out there 2 pink and 2 of the blue design, the hubs was so sold after walking on them he told me to go get a couple more and cover the whole patio with them! Lol

    Tina, your patio is so much fun! I love it! The rugs and colourful cushions make it so cosy – definitely an area to kick back and chill. πŸ™‚

    • ttbousu
      July 2, 2017

      Thanks Sam! We definitely kick back and chill but also have some mad card games at the dining table and sectional (spoons, uno) and competitive frolfing tourneys from those rockers!
