Hey guys - Jojo here! Continuing with our focus on outdoor spaces, here we have my take on outdoor living at the Harrison Hacienda.
Hacienda Hang Out:
After updating our backyard late last year we've been dying to complete the vision with some new outdoor furniture. Previously our backyard had a crumbly volleyball/basketball court in the back, so we opted to go for a minimal drought tolerant vibe instead. (Plus we're no good at sports) In keeping with the overall spanish modern theme for our home, we decided to play off the romantic vibe the architecture gives off, and contrast it with clean lines, modern touches, and a dash of midcentury vibes.
So building off the neutral base of cement on the patio and gravel in the yard, we opted for a grey toned wood table and lounge seating, accented with black and white metal chairs. With the palo verde tree in full bloom, along with the kangaroo paw and mexican feather grass, we didn't want to get too colorful in order to keep the focus on the landscaping. We still have bigger plans for the exterior of our home - which include bright white paint with dark trim, new outdoor lighting, updating our front porch and landscaping, a gate, the list goes on and on! But for now, in addition to furniture we'll add some string lights, steel planters for our veggie garden and a pendant over the table, along with plans for outdoor movie screenings on our garage wall. Yay!
We were so excited to get everything at pretty reasonable prices (after some heartbreak when items needed to be reconsidered due to backorders). I'll share photos once everything gets to us by mid May. Reach out if you're interested in getting links to any of the items below, and hope this inspires you to create your own outdoor oasis to enjoy this summer!
