Having spent the last nine years living in Arizona, I have come to appreciate the outdoor living space. Summer comes early and stays well beyond its welcome. After growing up in the Pacific Northwest, my heart longs for the cooler temps and a day of rain or snow. While we try to travel as much as possible in the summer time to escape the heat, we still have many days at home. And our favorite way to beat the heat is poolside with family and friends.
We moved into our current home almost three years ago and we were excited to finally have a pool in the backyard. I had grand plans to create an inviting and styled outdoor space when we moved in but life seemed to get in the way. You can imagine my excitement when we had the opportunity to partner with Hayneedle. I am always looking to mix vintage pieces with new decor so I often have a difficult time finding the right pieces. I was delighted to find such a great variety of styles on Hayneedle and finally found the perfect pieces to complete our backyard.
With three kids our backyard is much more than just a pool, we love playing a game of family football or bocce ball . And after a long game with the kids, there is nothing that I want to do more than relax in our new hammock.
From the time we moved in to our house, I desired a space that we could gather with our friends and family outside and enjoy the beautiful weather and sit by the fire and maybe roast some marshmallows. These chairs had the clean lines and neutral colors that I was looking for while providing ample places for everyone to sit.
We loved partnering with AVE Styles and Hayneedle to bring you these backyard makeovers! Check out Alex’s backyard space over on her site and Coley’s boho makeover here. You can shop the look and see more pictures on Hayneedle’s blog. Click here to check it out!
