Last month, I was incredibly proud to share our home outdoor makeover collaboration with Pottery Barn, featured in the first issue of their new publication, The Collected Home. The Collected Home is a celebration of how Australians love to live and the first edition featured Sibella Court, myself and Jono Fleming as “Style Captains”. We were each given free reign to style and curate a range of Pottery Barn products, to create a look that reflects how we live. Below is the look I have created; our new outdoor area!
This was all done and photographed by me last spring. I am truly so proud to be able to share not just this collaboration with Pottery Barn, but also our outdoor living space and makeover.
Those who follow me on instagram may have seen the transformation of our home from a 70’s yellow brick ugly ducking, to the white modern farmhouse it is today. It took me 3 long years to convince my husband to do the board and batten cladding. We now both agree it was the final piece of the renovation puzzle.
We’ve since sold this lovely little modern farmhouse, and have found a lovely cottage to rent for the time being. We will look for another home at some point, but are in no rush just yet. We need a break from renovating!!
Anyway, I absolutely LOVE this Indio outdoor setting. It looks just as gorgeous at our new rental home, as it does here in our former home. It’s solid, elegant, versatile and truly outdoor ready. It’s also an absolute breeze to maintain.
My other favourite pieces are the large woven wall basket and metal drum side table. Both are pieces I also use inside and out and easily interchangeable in other areas of the home. The indoor/outdoor rug, coffee table, ceramic stool, cushions, basket, glassware, plates and napkins are all from Pottery Barn as well.
Our barn lights are from Barn Light Australia and our roofing is Colorbond in colour Wallaby.
I hope you’ve loved this makeover as much as we loved doing it! It was so nice to have a beautiful outdoor area to utilise during the summer. It’s also been so nice to have a finished space to entertain our family and friends.
