Patio / June 13, 2018 /
Wicker has officially transcended its stereotype. We have heard rumors that wicker can be seen as old-fashioned and fussy, but we think that, styled with bright, modern details, there is nothing prettier, more delicate, and porch-perfect. These small-scale white wicker seating pieces, size and style ensures that the furniture will not overpower this small back porch. This condensed vignette does not trade scale for style though. Beige-and-white striped cushions were made to fit the chairs and sofa, and the effect is one of a polished, inviting outdoor space. Clusters of bright flowers in vases and porch corners filled with low-to-the-ground green plants in woven baskets complete the scene.
We like to make the most of every space. This pretty patio is adjacent to a small storage outbuilding that can easily be transformed into a bar or buffet for patio parties. With the addition of one simple shelf, the area takes on a brand new lease on entertaining and outdoor life. During the day, it is a rest for garden gloves and pretty plants, at night, it can be a bar, a garnish station, or a place for bottles and glasses. There is no end to the potential of a shelf, especially a substantial one strategically placed and seamlessly integrated on the outer wall of a shed as cute as this one.
