In A Small Space & On A Budget

{The inspiration - NYC canvas - hung on the wall to really create the room vibe.}

{These chairs were extra comfy by adding a few accent pillows.}
{This outdoor rug is actually reversible.}
{These super affordable tables will now go into our office.}
{The palms in the terra cotta pots were only $12 at Costco! What a deal!}

When we moved into our new space we picked up a cement backyard that - until a few days ago - had nothing in it! Preparing for our housewarming BBQ inspired me to create a hip little "outdoor room" for our guests. My inspiration came from our large b/w canvas that hangs in our office and by the time I was done, I had created a Hollywood Regency-esque room that was relaxing and comfy!

With a small budget and big ideas, I created our outdoor room by using existing furniture and decor + picking up a few extra pieces. The space was small and we could only have some many chairs. One thing I did was throw done a few floor cushions to encourage guests to lounge and enjoy the homecooked food.

I love your outdoor room! I saw the rug at Target and thought, "isn't that from Rebecca's patio?" I have pillows from Smith & Hawken with a very similar print so I may just have to get your rug too.

Have a lovely weekend.
