Monday Moment | July 17, 2017

This Monday moment is going to be about one of Nomad’s favorite spaces… we LOVE being outside (especially with friends and a cold beverage of choice). So let’s take a look at our top 5 summer patios with ideas on how to transform your own space. It is time for cookouts, corn hole and dancing barefoot in the grass. Bring on summer!

Patio #1

Why we love it:

It is all about mixing textures and materials. Here we have a solid wood coffee table, rattan chair, and a painted side table. Then comes the second “softening” layer with pillows, throws, and patterned rug. 

Who doesn’t love a swing? The fact that it's white and neutral means that you can add your own flair! We love animal prints... go for it—polka dots, why not?! Mud cloth? We encourage it! 

This electric mix is inviting and could easily change with the seasons!

Patio #2

Designed by one of our favorites, Emily Henderson, this patio is clean and modern look with beautiful organic touches that keeps it warm and inviting! 

Why we love it: 

One of our favorite combinations is black with dark grey and pops of white! Here, she took a risk by mixing navy and black (thought of years ago as a fashion and design no no) and created a funky space that doesn't feel too overdone. 

The introduction of the warm natural teak wood in the coffee table and side tables ties in the seating area with the sectional and allows for everyone to have a place to sit down with their beverage.

Patio #3

Why we love it: 

Where do we begin? This wall garden is next level and makes me want to do my own (on a smaller scale). I did a little more research on this and will definitely do my “How to” post next Thursday on how we can recreate this at home!

Another feature of this space is the mixing of pattern…. Now this is no easy feat, let me tell you! It is important to pick patterns that are different from each other but that compliment each other and play on scale. By adding solid pillows (of the same color) into the mix, it helps tie everything together. 

All the seating is gathered around this mixed purpose coffee table… this thing lives a double life. During the day it acts solely as a coffee table and at night it turns into a fire pit. We are all naturally drawn to fire and it is an easy way to instantly create atmosphere! 

Lastly those modern outdoor chairs are fabulous… we have seen them done mostly indoors so to find them for outdoor use find the link below.
