OUR NEW BACKYARD PATIO REVEAL – PERFECT FOR ENTERTAINING!

I can’t believe we’re finally here…I’ve been talking about this moment for at least two months now, and if you’ve been following along with me here and on Instagram, you know that the weather has played a critical role in the production, or lack thereof, of our patio makeover. Well, today is the the day and I’m so excited to share our new backyard patio reveal – perfect for entertaining! What a Spring it has been. Rain, rain, rain and so….much….rain. It has been, well, trying to say the least, but we were able to build the new deck off to the side of the patio, and set up all of our magnificent new patio and lounge furniture from the Canadian Tire CANVAS collection. Two words : IN LOVE. Really, really, really in love. I had a very specific vision for this space and I have to say, from concept to ‘almost’ completion (more on that in a minute), it has come to life exactly as I had planned. I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to partner with Canadian Tire for this makeover, and I think you’ll be thrilled with the results too.This gorgeous, outdoor oasis is perfect for entertaining! Lounge, dine and have great conversation with family and friends in this beautiful backyard!The reason why it’s ‘almost’ completed, is because we have some finishing details that we couldn’t get to, due to the weather conditions. I could not put this reveal off any longer, so keep your eyes peeled for a follow up post later this Summer, which will include some final items that will bring everything up a few notches. We’ll be staining the deck and stairs, adding new shutters and window boxes to the windows and sprucing up the landscaping here and there. Just enough touches to go from almost, to completely ;)

First, let’s look back at what our yard looked like before. Pretty, but not so functional…Our gazebo and dining area were nice, but small, and starting to wear down after almost 10 years of use. It was time for something new.It was very important to me that we create specific zones back here, so that we can relax, entertain and have an extension of the interior of our home. I wanted it to feel as though you were simply in another room off the back of our house.

Lounge, dine and have great conversation with family and friends in this beautiful backyard!Now, the functionality is perfect, and with the new deck we built off to the side, it feels as though the space has doubled in size. We have a lounging zone, a dining zone and a conversation zone, all of which we’ve used daily since we’ve created this – weather permitting that is! Come on out and have a closer look!This gorgeous, outdoor oasis is perfect for entertaining! Lounge, dine and have great conversation with family and friends in this beautiful backyard!

Create the perfect lounging area in your backyard with a beautiful covered gazebo, with added height for an airy, open feel. A gorgeous fire table, solar chandelier, resin wicker furniture, and layered accessories create an elegant and sophisticated look.I’ll start with the this gorgeous Dashley gazebo we found. Many of the items you see out here are from the same collection. This gazebo is sturdy, spacious (the size is 10 x 12″ which we love) and it keeps the rain out when the vinyl curtain panels are all zipped closed. We’ve had a ton of rain as you know, and this baby has kept everything dry when it gets wet outside. We store all of the cushions and accessories in here and it’s great. Create the perfect lounging area in your backyard with a beautiful covered gazebo, with added height for an airy, open feel.

All of the new pillows I found mix beautifully with my existing pillows, which makes me very happy – you know I love that mix!

This is such a great addition to our yard, and a much more affordable option than extending the patio. We love it so much, we want to build another one on the other side of the patio…that may come next year!

    Everything is just Perfect! It would be hard to say which is my favorite. But I have a question. What do you do with all your beautiful things at night? We are definitely patio people having coffee in the mornings and dinner in the evenings, and brunch on Sunday. We cover all our furniture at night and I try to limit my pretty things that I leave out when not entertaining.

    OMG!! Tamara!!! To say I’m in love with your outdoor space is simply an UNDERSTATEMENT!!!! This gorgeous haven you’ve created is outdoor luxury at best!

    Also, I have a few questions that I’d love to throw your away, as later this Fall I begin me and my Husband’s landscaping project. But I won’t be doing my full reveal until Spring of 2018. I’d like to learn how sponsorship works. As my outdoor vision is ambitious. Can you please shed some light on that. Do they sponsor items just for your photoshoot alone? Or, do they allow you to use and keep free of charge or at a lower price? If you don’t mind sharing details of your sponsored partner for this gorgeous oasis.

    Please feel free to private message me if you’d prefer to do that @alluredbydesign or via email.

    What a beautiful outdoor living space your family now has. It is everything I’ve always wanted, but didn’t know I wanted…Ha! That gazebo with the hanging light fixture is my favorite. Will it stand up to stormy weather? Here in the Midwest we are constantly battling with tornadoes, straight winds and thunderstorms with wind speeds upwards of 80 mph. I’ve always been reluctant to install a outdoor structure for fear of needing to be home to secure it when the weather turns. Oh and the table with fire feature is my next favorite. Will you be posting links in the future as to where one could shop the look? I will be looking forward to the summer post that will follow up this one. As always, I find everything you do to be beautiful and inspiring Tamara.

      Hi Denise! Thank you so very much! Love that you love it all and are inspired!! That’s a great question – I know this thing is super solid and it’s bolted down to the deck for stability. When we get a storm (we’ve had tons lately), everything goes inside and gets zipped up. The heavy vinyl curtain panels keep it all safe and dry – a feature we absolutely love!! Thank you for the kind words, I’m very humbled!! Because this is only available in Canada I cannot post shop the look links…but you can see everything that Canadian Tire has available on their site (I’ve linked to them in the post) – they may ship to you…thank you again, and I hope that helps! xox
