Our outdoor lounge area is not changing too much. I actually haven’t ordered the new Gloster pieces that I have my eye on as I am still deciding if I should go for the long thing rectangle coffee table or the square one? But I definitely want to get the server so that I can have a mini bar/food prep area for outside.I think secretly I have been hoping they will go on sale!

Some new pieces that I did already get my hands on are the Fermob solar lanterns (Interio), rattan mirrors (Depot and Do It and Garden), the outdoor neutral rugs (Micasa) and the rustic cushions (Pfister). I am hoping to give the patio an “indoor” decorated feel to it, but keeping in mind that there is no permanent overhead roof, so everything needs to be weather resistant. I had and am still looking at building a more permanent structure but I don’t want to compromise on the light into the living area and I am just not convinced about the whole glass winter garden designs I have seen. All the images I have found just look like odd add ons… but here’s hoping I come across a look I love. In the interim I am going to calculate how often we would use the space to see if such an addition makes sense.
