I’ve posted a few snaps of our new back patio design on Instagram, and since many of y’all have asked for more, thought it would be fun to share a full backyard tour here! It’s hard to believe that we’ve been in our house for 5 years, and this summer we felt like it was time to give our back terrace and pool area a bit of a facelift — plus since Adam’s been working on landscaping our side yard for the past year, we were able to recycle all our old furniture by moving it over there. We’ve already been living out back all summer, eating dinner on the dining table every evening and gathering around the coffee table for weekend brunches, not to mention spending as much time as humanly possible submerged in the pool to escape this 100-degree Austin heat.
Also, since most of our patio furniture is from Restoration Hardware, I wanted to give y’all an early heads up that a beautiful new RH Gallery will be opening here in Austin at The Domain in mid-September. Hooray! I’m excited to be on the host committee for the opening party, and the 60,000 sq ft space will include inspiring interior installations, a garden courtyard and terrace, an interactive design atelier, rooftop park and conservatory and collections from RH Interiors, RH Modern, and RH Outdoor. Stay tuned for more on that, and click through the slides for all our patio details!
