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!


  1. Good evening, Ron! The back patio is really shaping up! Love your choice of the furniture--it should "weather-well!" Have a great evening! Cheers! xoxo

  2. Beautiful!...Love your French inspired courtyard and must say I love the fountain too!...What a beautiful and lush area to entertain and relax in!

  3. It’s nice to have a green space to relax in. I think it lifts the spirits and keeps you in touch with nature. Your new furniture is classic! We ditched the cushion padded furniture too and went with a woven seat design. It is tiring trying to keep the cushions dry. Looking good my friend!!


Thanks for reading and commenting @ The Uptown Acorn! I love hearing from you. Cheers, y'all!
