I know some people love to have a dining set. I have friends (and some clients) who don’t even want to mix woods in a room! But I’m quite the opposite. I love the creativity that a mix of woods, paint colors or styles affords you. And one of the most fun ways to achieve that mix is by mixing dining chairs. It adds character and interest that you simply can’t get with a matching set!
Well, hello friends! I feel like it’s been so long since I’ve been on here! Between our vacation to North Carolina, and then entertaining house guests for a week, and then the long Fourth of July weekend, it’s been a little hectic! I meant to publish this post last week, but time kept getting away from me. Anyway, I’m so happy to be back! Hope you are all well and that you enjoyed a wonderful Fourth with your family and friends!
As I’m sure some of you know, my backyard has been in the midst of a remodel for almost the entire past year. We spent last summer remodeling the pool, and then most of the fall finishing the landscaping. And though I haven’t revealed the entire project yet, today I’m sharing one of the newest additions – my new outdoor chandeliers!
Is it summer where you are yet? It’s definitely arrived here! We went from our gloomy May and June mornings to it being almost 90 degrees today! And believe me, I’m not complaining. I’ve been wanting some sunshine and warmth for months now, so it feels delicious. (Though when you speak to me in August, I might not be feeling quite as happy about it, haha!) 😉
Well, we have finally finished our landscape remodel and I can’t believe the difference! With new sod and some new plantings from Lowe’s, we’ve changed the whole look of our yard!
As I shared with you last summer, we embarked on a complete remodel of our yard – both the landscaping and the pool. Unfortunately, because of some very warm weather, we couldn’t sod or do any planting until at least November. And then, we got so much rain, that we couldn’t actually finish until later in the spring. So, it’s later than we planned – 9 months later, actually! But it’s finally done and we are so thrilled with the result!
It’s hard to believe we’re already half way through May!! How did that happen?! I feel like I was just talking about winter decorating, and now we’re well into spring and about to talk summer! (Not that I’m complaining mind you – we’ve had such a rainy winter and quite a gloomy spring so I’m very ready for some sun!)
