Year of the House: Patio Furniture, Part Two

In case you ever wondered what patio furniture we decided to go with for our roof deck, I thought I should finally let you know.

Thank you, Crate & Barrel, for single-handedly making this summer THAT much more awesome. I have to admit that we didn't use our deck a whole lot before. Mostly it was the hassle of having to carry our camp chairs up every time we wanted to use it. We like to eat up there so it was annoying to have to take several trips up and down the steps only to have a not very relaxing spot to enjoy. Now that it feels like an additional room in this house (a very relaxing one at that!) we've been using the deck a lot. It is pretty nice to enjoy an evening breeze, actually see the stars come out at night (something that we thought wasn't possible in the city), and just relax after a long day. This has easily become our new favorite "room" in the house. Andrew compares it to the relaxing screened in porch he grew up with at his parents' house where he could stretch out on the furniture, do nothing, and be quite content with that all while spending time outdoors.

(Oh, and p.s. there is also an awesome umbrella that isn't up in these photos. It's pretty sweet too.)

  4. That's amazing. I'm so jealous! I wish I could do something like that with my backyard, but in my neighborhood having furniture in your backyard is pretty much an open invitation for neighbors to throw unauthorized parties in your backyard.... so it ends up not being worth it.

  6. I love it!! My parents have a nice patio set like that on their patio by the pool, and it's my favorite spot to take a nap or hangout with the hubs, or friends. I love the color of ya'lls too, very summery.

  10. They look great! Is that also a storage ottoman? Crate & Barrel is the bomb-diggity. I have to go in every time I'm near one.

  12. Oh I love it! I always drool over the patio furniture in the crate and barrel catalogs, but it's just not practical for us when we'd only use it 2 months out of the year :( lucky you with your rooftop patio! Looks like such a great place to relax after a long day. Totally jealous!
