A place where design, fun finds and family collide

Outdoor lounge area {creating another room}

We live in a 1000 sq. ft condo with four of us.  I feel like we have enough space so I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but I feel like I can create some extra space with what we have.  Yes, I’d love another bathroom because we all know sharing just one can be a pain, but for now it is what we’ve got and I don’t have the budget for any type of construction.  What we can do as summer is quickly approaching is use some of our outdoor space as an extra “room.”  Currently, right outside our back slider is a space that is covered and stays pretty protected from the weather all year round.  My husband and I have agreed that this is the perfect area to create a loungey, sitting area.  Here are a few photos of what we are working with…

The space right now feels like a total catch all and I just can’t stand it anymore.  I have a few items already that we will be using, but there will be a ton of DIY going on over the next few weeks.  Here is my design concept for the space.

Now…I’m sure I’ll be tweaking and changing this plan as we go because that is how I usually work when doing spaces for myself.  The plan is to stick with a similar direction as the above using bright pinks, deep blues, wood and gold.  I can’t wait to see how it all ends up.
