Thank you to my friend Stefanie from Brooklyn Limestone for asking me to participate in her Beautiful Backyard Blogger Series. Having been a long time admirer of her work, it is a true honor for me to take part.
I think of our backyard as another room in our home. A room where I want a timeless and relaxed feel that is consistent with the other spaces throughout the house. I have discovered that when you understand how you want your home to feel, their are basic design elements that will communicate that message consistently. As a result, making design decisions for your home becomes a little easier.
Once I knew and understood the color palette, patterns, and finishes that would portray a timeless feeling best, I became confident in what to choose for our home whether the space was inside or outside. I thought others may benefit from a simple guide showing how I create this feeling, so I built a FREE “Timeless Feeling Design Plan” to help get you started. This design plan is a small sample of what I teach in my online course, “Creating a Timeless Feeling Home” that you can register for now here.
When you keep your outside decisions consistent with the ones you make on the inside, you are able to bring the outdoors in seamlessly. For me, this approach creates a calming and predictable setting which I appreciate and crave. We have a busy household with three young children. By working within a framework, I create a calming retreat my family and I desire. Intuition and your home play a big part, but having a set of guidelines can make it a little easier for you.
My daughter took this picture while I was taking my own and I absolutely loved her perspective. I had to share!
Stefanie will be featuring 10 blogger backyards over the course of two weeks, so be sure to stop by her blog for some inspiration!
