I am working on the charming courtyard at our new home. I just love the space and have made it my goal to get it done before we move in so we can enjoy the beautiful weather. I have been on the hunt for furniture and decor items for our new space. Let’s take a look at My New Courtyard Design and Sources.
I love the entrance to the house. When you walk in there is a little area on the left that I am working on. We have a post coming up in July. Hopefully, it will all be complete by then.
Here is the beautiful courtyard at night.
Here is the inspiration board for the new space. You know my M.O. I like to have a mix of new and old, and I don’t want everything to match. I love a collected look. I think it makes the design interesting and
The courtyard is a pretty large space, so there will be multiple areas to sit and enjoy. Let’s start with the fireplace area. We purchased some vintage Portuguese baskets and large galvanized (what will be planters) from one of our favorite local dealers Atelier de Campagne. These vintage items set the stage for the plan. The clock is from Pottery Barn.
In front of the fireplace will be the Palmetto Wicker Sofa from Pottery Barn on sale, and the Willow Wicker Chairs from Ballard Designs. FYI I have the Suzanne Kasler Harbor Collection from Ballard that I will be using in the pool area, and I am extremely impressed with the quality and price point when compared to similar options. The side table is the Fernando Accent Table is from Crate and Barrel. The sofa will be in front of the fireplace and the two sets of chairs and a side table on either side. The coffee table is from Dovetail but I was not able to find it online anywhere. The brown and white pillows are from Krinto on Etsy but are not indoor outdoor. I have not had any luck finding similar yet in an indoor-outdoor fabric. The black pillows are from California Living on Etsy and are indoor outdoor.
We will be using our current round dining room table under the eaves with our chairs that we purchased from World Market last year. You can find the pillows on Etsy here.
The former owners purchased this fountain in France and I love the potential this little area has. Pillows are from Etsy here. The vintage galvanized bathtubs are from Patine. They are filled with espaliered apples. You can see how we used them in our current garden, in the post Before and After Backyard Transformation here.
That is my basic plan to address this area. We hope to make this space comfortable and collected. This is an area we will be living in. Much of the rest we will tweak as we go. So much of the home and gardens are so good. We will just do some small tweaks to make it our own over time.
