Acorn Cottage Uptown {Backyard Furniture}

We have long term plans for the backyard which includes a lap pool as well as an arbor, but as we save funds we have slowly been replacing the backyard furniture which we have had since 2005. It moved with us from our Atlanta home to our Perrier home in 2010, and it was just sold to two families who will hopefully use it for a long time too. 

I imagine a French-style garden, pool, and furniture. 
Step #1 Chase's Landscapers added the vintage style cafe' lights. Check!



The addition of French-style bistro furniture including loveseats and chairs will add a touch of France to the garden. We chose these because of the exposed back yard. I hate having to bring cushions in and out. The bamboo frame is also outdoor friendly. Black and white cabana-striped pillows compliment the gray and white furniture. We also added an acrylic waterfall coffee table. One has to sit drinks, right?








The garden looks like this today. I'll update changes as they are made. We'd like to pull up some of the pavers and install dwarf mondo grass.

Personally, I like the look of an algaed patio. I love the greenish patina. I know it's not for everyone, but I like it.







French-inspired Furniture, y'all!

Vintage Cafe' String Lights

Last week, Chase's Landscape gurus installed strings of vintage-style cafe' lights in the backyard. I cannot tell you how great these look at night. Connected to a dusk-dawn timer, these lights are easy to use and light up the area perfectly.





I'll share more of the backyard soon as our new furniture is being delivered soon.



Cafe' lights, y'all!

Louisiana Creole Cottage

If I could have any home, I would love a raised Creole Cottage. I came across this beauty from the River Parishes while reading The New Orleans Advocate. 





You can read about this beauty and see more pictures HERE.

Creole cottage is a term loosely used to refer to a type of vernacular architecture indigenous to the Gulf Coast of the United States. Within this building type comes a series of variations.



Creole Cottage, y'all!
