We are currently taking a little breather from the interior of our house and focusing a little more on the exterior- the back yard to be exact. I love to spend as much time as humanely possible outside in the summer and so I am beyond excited to have my own yard now! The one thing we are missing is a patio! So we’re planning on installing one in the next month and have decided on stamped concrete for a few reasons- 1) budget 2) ease of maintenance. And while concrete doesn’t sound very natural and pretty- think again. This is a stamped concrete walkway that my dad’s firm installed at a project recently…..
Looks like slate, right??? A few more images of stamped concrete patios:
We took out a big tree to make room for it while still leaving plenty or lawn for dog wrestling…. not mention, we have big plans for more plants and trees for a smidge of privacy.
I also have been wondering what color to paint my shed (and I need to get my Grandma’s vintage Brown Jordan patio set powdercoated…)
After seeing Erica Cook’s instagram photo of her yard I am thinking black with white windows! I want it to fade away a bit, but this will make it look modern and match our house too!
Some more patio inspiration images- both grand and doable:
A firepit would be nice, no?
Patio is the city are super charming too- plus no mowing!
