Bri’s Finished Patio Tour

patio makeover sarah sherman samuel x design love festI’m thrilled to be sharing a tour of the patio I designed for Bri Emery (aka Design Love Fest) today! If you missed the first post with the “before” images and our inspiration head HERE. Bri does a lot of traveling and I wanted to make her patio feel a bit like a boutique hotel while giving her a staycation space she wants to hang out and entertain in year round.

The oversized mirrors anchor every other seating area creating repetition and focal points for multiple vignettes. I love having the mix of the delicate white wire chairs mixed with the more solid wood and woven captain chairs.

The pink ones we had made to match the cushions but you can find most of the other pillows here, here, here, and here. The rattan chairs, in the back area, unfortunately turned a lot darker after weathering a few storms but the shape is still beautiful. So, FYI, buyers beware, when it says store indoors during inclement weather, they mean it. The coffee table has since sold out but I love this option as well.

Bri… I’m up for adoption is all I’m saying.
