Pretty Patio {31 Days of Moodboards}

I wanted to create an outdoor space that was pretty and practical, with a place to eat, something to keep you warm, something for shade, and something for ambiance. I started with a plain cement slab on the back of our (imaginary) house and immediately dressed up the space by adding a pergola. Not the easiest thing to build on a Sunday afternoon, but it can be done over a few weekends. Or you can purchase a kit for a couple thousand bucks. Or count your lucky stars that you already have one!

Other than that, the changes are very simple. An outdoor rug, a table and chairs, a fire pit, a fountain, a clock, a lantern and a handful of pillows. I also included some fun, striped curtains which look a little dark here, but could be a great way to add privacy from neighbors or further shade your patio. I love the look of billowy curtains in the breeze, don't you?

Do you have an outdoor space that doubles as another place to eat or gather with friends?
