Hey, remember waaay back when I shared my lake house outdoor space plans? I’ve finally brought my design boards to life and managed to catch a dry day to snap a few photos. My plans started with these pretty outdoor rugs from Unique Loom. They are actually from the Jill Zarin Outdoor Collection™, yes that Jill Zarin if you are a Housewives of New York fan. I can just imagine them in her Hamptons house, but they are right at home here too.
Lake House Deck
I was going to split this up into two blog posts. However, I’m too excited to share, so I’ll just show you both spaces that I gave a little upgrade.
Well, maybe Charlie will show you around the first space since he insisted on being in every single shot on our master deck. I don’t blame him, this is my favorite spot in our whole house.
He actually has figured out how to open the screen slider doors and routinely lets himself out here to sunbathe – no joke. What a life he has! ;)
Also, I should point out that I flipped a chair around in a few of these photos to show the lake view. This is one of those cases where I wish I had a mission impossible flying suit/pulley system situation because it’s impossible to photograph this deck well. Rest assured these chairs face the lake in real life to take advantage of the view.
The rug I had here last summer was too small, so I was happy to upgrade to this 7×10 which really fits the space so much better. You know I love blue and white stripes, so this was the perfect rug to lighten up all our dark outdoor furniture.
The new throw pillows go perfect with the subtle blue color. Charlie wants you to see his profile in this photo apparently…appreciate all the angles people!
I went with bigger planters out on our deck, and I love the little added privacy and pop of color out here. The white flowers are Mandevilla, the pink ones are Spider Flower, and the purple, Catmint.
Adding the umbrella up here has been the best thing ever for the 90 degree days we have been having. This is now the perfect little oasis to drink my coffee and answer emails before my kids rise and shine for the day.
Lake House Patio
Let’s head down to the patio now, possibly my 2nd favorite hang out spot!
We were using our old rug down here from the last house, but this patio was so much larger. So again, I upgraded to the larger size. The patio feels so much brighter with the new rug not to mention cooler on our feet.
I went with this diamond pattern here, and it’s such a fun pattern play with our striped pillows.
I’m really happy with the quality of these rugs from the Jill Zarin Outdoor Collection™. They dry super fast so I don’t have to deal with any mildew issues, and they feel great underfoot. I always get care questions on outdoor rugs. The only thing I do is use my little handheld leaf blower to keep it clean, and powerwash before I put it away for the year. Just be sure to let it dry completely, then roll it up and store inside for the winter.
Again white and blue, I know, I know, but it goes so well with our whole house so I don’t think I’ll ever give it up!
I’ve had a few questions about having this fire pit table on a rug but we haven’t had any issues with it at all. It doesn’t have a very powerful flame and doesn’t give off a ton of heat. Just enough to roast our marshmallows.
I’m so impressed with these new throw pillows. I’ve left them out in the rain on accident a few times, and they have dried right up. I love the reversible pattern because a girl needs options. Although now that I say that I realize I completely forgot to actually snap a photo of the other side, ha!
I painted our old brown planters white which I have been wanting to do forever.
I wasn’t sure it was going to work, so I threw a handful of leftover tile grout into the paint to add some texture.
They have held up well so far! I went with more Mandevilla for some height and a mixture of Verbena and White Petunias.
We have been so enjoying our time out here as a family, so much so that I haven’t been on the blog much! I do have a fun pool house update coming soon, so stay tuned for that next week!
