Patio Planning

It was 75 degrees here last week and that means, somehow, mid-March and I'm already behind on planning our patio.  I am so excited to start fresh with our 28' x 14' slab of patio.  We have a lot of great pieces that came with us from the old place (here's a refresher of what it looked like then), and already picked up a few more at the end of the season last year.  I am itching to arrange, rearrange and then make it beautiful!

Here is my inspiration, mid-century, relaxed and happy!

Patio Inspiration

Since I'll be out of town for the next couple of weekends, I thought it would be a little silly to get started this weekend, instead I spent the weekend scheming in my mind and came up with this little layout.  If it's half as pretty as it is in my head, it's going to be a great summer!!!
