  1. What is the source of your sectional sofa? Is it comfortable?

    1. It was from Ballard Designs and was called the Sutton Sectional Sofa. It is comfortable, but is no longer available, which is why I linked a couple of similar options.

  2. I love your new rug. I am changing my décor also to a neutral pallet. I have a few pops of color but for the most part sticking with the neutral and natural look.

    1. Thank you! I love the neutral too, because I can change the color direction every year with either the plants I choose or adding a pillow or two… 🙂

  3. Your patio is beautiful. I’m sure it is a great place to have tea in the morning before starting your day.

    How comfortable and beautiful! I think having some upscale furniture mixed with the rustic old world pieces is very chic! You have done a wonderful job!

  5. I loved the blue and white, also love the chances you made looks very relaxing.
    Thanks for sharing, always look forward to your blog….

    Beautiful setting! I have a deck just like yours & have gone from navy blue to neutral colors also. The hanging basket softens the scape. Where do you store all the pillows & cushions when it rains?

    1. Thanks, Sharon! The cushions are Sunbrella, so we keep them outside all summer. Sometimes hubby will bring the pillows in if it will be a big rain, and in that case, they usually just sit on the kitchen floor behind the table… lol! For the winter, though, we bring all the cushions in and store them in a closet in the basement.

  7. The African Violets on the table seem to be ailing. I hope they are not in full sun, the leaves are scorched- they prefer bright filtered light and like to dry out between waterings. I love the changes to the patio but its funny how so many bloggers have transitioned to a blue and white color palette this year and you are embracing neutrals. I love how relaxing and unassuming neutrals make a home. Keep up the great inspiration- and please take care of those violets! LOL!

  8. With a few patio accessories changed,
    you have a POP of SNUG!
    I am crushing the comfortable, cozy,
    relaxed feel. Have a good weekend.

  9. I’m looking to switch out my blue and white as well. I like the calmer feel of the taupe with white plus how it looks against the planters.
    I’m off to search for a nicer plant hanging hook. The only thing I’ve seen is plain black iron.

  10. Love your deck. It looks so nice, relaxing soft and spring like. The throw is perfect and the flowers. Jean
