I’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.
We had all the cushions custom made from the prettiest pink outdoor fabric
and hung black and white striped curtains
on the corner nook to give it a pool cabana feel. 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
We filled the space with plants and cacti, the more the merrier. Find the DIY post for the copper plant stand
, in the corner, HERE
. Hanging planters are from Urban Outfitters
We also loaded up the space with pillows and more pillows. The pink ones we had made to match the cushions but you can find most of the other pillows 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
I pretty much want to head over to Bri’s every day now around happy hour. The patio is at it’s best in the early evening, plus she’s turning into quite the chef
. Bri… I’m up for adoption is all I’m saying.

This is FANTASTIC!!! Do you have sources for the white planters (cacti, but especially the little planters and dishes on the table) ? They are SO nice and it’s hard to find great planters
Your sandals are amazing! Where are they from?!
