Week 2 of the Spring One Room Challenge is here! I am excited but not as far along as I’d like to be! If you’re new to the One Room Challenge, check out my first week here. Backyard season is here! And I’m not loving our backyard right now but I so want to! When we first moved in we knew we would have to create our own backyard space. It was given to us with just a plot of dirt. We added a big section of grass, a pretty pool on one side and extended our patio area. But I don’t love our furniture anymore! After having it for 7 years, I am ready for an upgrade and it is ready to find a new home. I want to do a Modern Backyard Makeover and here is my Modern Backyard Makeover Inspiration!
Modern Backyard Makeover Inspiration Living Room
When I think of my outdoor space I want it to be inviting and comfy. The space needs to have our design style all over it. I want people to curl up on the coach with a glass of wine or margarita, coffee if it’s morning. I have a friend who has good outdoor couches where we chat or our girls sit and chat. I want that in my modern backyard!
Modern Backyard Makeover Inspiration Dining Room
Here in Phoenix, it’s nice 7-8 months out of the year. Outdoor dining is something I’ve always wanted to do. But it’s not ideal in our current outdoor dining space, at least at dinner. The sun shines right in our eyes as its setting and we are trying to eat. And our table warped a couple years ago so needless to say we eat inside!
Modern Backyard Makeover Inspiration Poolside Escape
I’m not a swimmer, but my husband and older daughter are. We’ll find out this year if Gennady is too. She starts swim lessons soon. I want a nice place to lounge in my modern backyard and read my magazines while I watch them splash around.
Modern Backyard Makeover Inspiration: Place to Play
I want my girls to have a safe place to play outside. We live on a corner lot and the streets are usually busy so the front yard isn’t my favorite option. I begged my husband to make a little house like this for our girls. He did! We gave it to them for Christmas. I’ll reveal it later on but it’s super cute! We now have the perfect little house for our girls and their friends in the neighborhood. cozy by the sea
I love gathering inspiration for my modern backyard makeover. I really want it to be a fresh space with lots of white, some black and lots of color! Here are the pieces I’m looking at for our backyard.
Stay tuned next week for more of my Modern Backyard Makeover! Check out this week’s progress of the other guests Spring One Room.
