Our PNW Beach House Patio Makeover Plan

Coastal Interiors, Edesign, Home Blog Posts, Home Decor, Our Home, Our Beach HouseAnneke McConnell

Our beach house is relatively tiny and living in the Pacific Northwest Seattle area means that when it's warm and sunny outside, you want to make the most of it!  Updating our patio space for the Summer has been "on deck" for awhile now, and I'm so excited to share more of the transformation on Instagram as this plan comes to life! Here are a few things to keep in mind:

 

1. The patio is an extension of our home and where we spend A LOT of our time during the Summer months June-September. The weather is typically between 70s and 80s and perfect for playing outside, beach activities, walks, kayaking, boating, outside dining, etc.

 

2. We LOVE to have people over to hang out, eat good food, let the kids play, etc.  Updating our patio dining area has been HUGE on my wishlist for the past couple of years, so I'm pretty excited about this new outdoor dining set to welcome family and friends alike. With the added space, we can host larger groups than other times of the year when it's gray and rainy outside.

 

3. We're a "down to earth" kind of family and things can get messy, so whatever we planned for the patio had to accommodate fishing activities (the fire pit area is also where we'll need a spot for bait boxes, coolers, etc. as we come and go during launching).  Our kiddos and their friends are also often running across the deck from one house to the next or from the beach side of the house to the street/back lot side. Sand is flying, rock treasures abound, etc. and so I've been brainstorming design ideas to make this patio a happy balance between a "beautiful and calm oasis" to "family-friendly fun zone". :-)

 

Some of the items in today's design we already own (like the outdoor sectional) and others are on order slowly arriving one by one.  This will definitely be completed in a few phases.  

Let's dive into the design plan for the three different sections of the patio: the lounge area, the dining area, and the fire pit area (also right off the boat ramp and multipurpose utility area).

Foldable adirondack chairs were a MUST for this space since we need to be able to move everything out of the way for fishing gear at different times. 

 

There can definitely be more components when it comes to an outdoor space since they may be multiple "zones" you're working with.  This kind of feels like three rooms in one. :-)  We're excited to share the process and how it all comes together, and hopefully it inspires you and gives you ideas for your own patio or porch space!

I'll share updates as we move along (hopefully writing more too)! It's crazy town here at the end of the school year!! xoxo

Mix and Match Coastal Boy's Bedroom Design Ideas

Bedroom, Coastal Interiors, Home Blog Posts, Home Decor, Interiors, Kid's Bedroom, Boys RoomAnneke McConnell

Hi friends! Thanks for the love on my last post!  I know first hand how much time it can take to find all the home decor options out there, so I'm glad to hear these are saving you a ton of time! :-)

Today's design is all about a fun, coastal boy's bedroom. We currently have an eight year old son and whether I'm brainstorming designs for boys or girls I ALWAYS like to ask my kid's opinions. These are potentially their bedroom, and I'm sometimes surprised at their likes and dislikes, so it's quite helpful. Ha!

As for my son, he says he'd prefer this Star Wars flannel sheet set, and really, who am I to blame him? That's every Star Wars lovers dream right? #nopunintended ;-) Lol

Also, as much fun as it is to add trendy pieces to a room, I love incorporating pieces that will last a lifetime too, like this rustic (and very cool looking) storage trunk.  Throughout the years, it would also be well used as a coffee table.
