When there are a lot of pressing things to work on, I ignore those things and turn my sights to the pretty.
Insert – our barn patio. Otherwise known as the big deck. I knew that this space would become an important extension of our small living space and I became obsessed with prettying it up.
After we finished the railings and staining, I turned my sights to a little sprucing up. I put together this quick style board.
I still have a long way to go, but I love the first stage. I think the entire look hinges on this beautiful Mohawk Herringbone Indoor/Outdoor Rug. (Thanks to Mohawk for sending this beauty my way.)
I love the bold pattern. I love that it’s soft and comfortable to bare feet. I love that it will hold up to the outdoors with UV protected fibers. And I super love that Mohawk rugs are Made in America. I decided to pull in some red and aqua colors, which is perfect with the red barn and black and white rug.
I picked up the umbrella and pillows from World Market. I’m totally loving all the shade the umbrella provides.
And this basin is serving as a great spot to stash away pillows and the umbrellas while we aren’t there. (It’s super windy out here, so this should help to keep track of everything.) I have big plans for this area in the future, too.
I still have lots of projects on the horizon for this space, but it’s on its way. Thanks in part to this gorgeous rug.
