With warmer months ahead and our house addition wrapping up in a few weeks, I’ve been on the hunt for backyard patio furniture. We want the outside living area to feel like an extension of our home, so are looking to add an outdoor sofa. It’s been hard to narrow down because I like such a variety of styles. Here are a few we are considering. Which would do you like best?

Design Crush: Eric Olsen Design

coastal southern california home

I recently came across the portfolio of Southern California architect and designer, Eric Olsen. I’m in love. He creates beautiful, traditional homes with a fresh, contemporary feel. Many of his projects feature gorgeous aged wood ceilings, paneling and cabinetry that give a wonderful earthiness to the space. One project referred to as “Port Streets”, is a favorite. Pictured above, the home has a relaxed California style I adore. The backyard patio with fireplace is a stunner too. Take a peek for yourself!

Don’t be discouraged if you don’t have a large backyard, there are plenty of container options that would be great for patios, decks or even fences. I love this vertical herbal and veggie garden solution below…
