This one is actually my parent’s backyard. They bought a spec home in a master-planned community. There is a covered patio out back, but they wanted to extend it a little for a little more space and to provide a little more privacy from the two-story behind them. This is a work in progress, but we have already selected and purchased 2 sets of these swivel chairs from Wayfair.soothingtropicalpatio01

The plan is to integrate some wood (possibly teak?) furniture, plenty of plants and a nice built in gas grill.

Here’s the initial floor plan:soothingtropicalpatio_floorplan.jpg

My parents love to host family and friends, so it’s important to them to have a mix of comfortable seating, along with a nice big table to have big dinners. We’ve not chosen a table and chairs yet, but here are some inspiration pieces:soothingtropicalpatio_diningoptions

{ 1 // 2 // 3 // 4 // 5 }

With any of these options, I love the idea of doing a mix of 1-2 benches and chairs.


More to come on this one….
