Today’s the big day for my Home Depot Style Challenge patio reveal! When I started dreaming up my patio makeover, I wanted to create a new outdoor room in a space that was a rather bleak concrete pad. I imagined defining the floor with a DIY gravel area and the walls with palms to make an inviting space that felt intimate but accommodating and inviting. Using these elements and our new Beverly sectional, the patio transformed into an outdoor living room with lush plant life and a splash of color. Ready to tackle your own patio makeover? Consider these tips: add gravel for a chic foundation, use potted palms for lushness and intimacy, stick with dark colored furniture for durability, add ambient lighting with string lights and lanterns, and tie together your space with a consistent color palette.
