PATIO SEASON UPDATES WITH AT HOME

When patio season came around and we started talking about refreshing the patio at my mom’s house, I started thinking about how to use the space efficiently – for both sitting and dining. I love setting up a banquette in a dining space because it makes comfortable seating and can easily become seating for a sitting area without the dining table in front. For the patio dining/living area, I’ll be sharing progress with each month with each addition to the space. This month I picked up two armless chairs, a side table, pillows, and a lantern, which make a great starting point for the patio and will later become the banquette for the dining set-up!

The armless chairs are already very comfortable with their deep cushions, but I wanted to bring in some color to the space with the blue pillows. Keeping the chairs neutral means I can always switch up the color palette of the future dining set-up. As you can see, the chairs can be pushed together to create a little banquette with the side table moved to the end. I’ve been seeing a lot of dining areas or breakfast rooms with a pair of dining tables rather than one, which makes the set-up more easily convertible between sitting and dining, as the smaller tables can be moved in and out.

For my next step, I’m thinking of bringing in two tables and a couple bistro chairs. I love the idea of having a space that easily converts between two functions. It’s a great small-patio solution!
