Do you ever just want to escape?
Freshen your point of view?
Seasonal changes seem to inspire these types of things.
As much as I would love to live on vacation 24/7, I know that is merely a dream.
What is a reality is being able to transform your back patio, or front porch, into the serene relaxing space it beckons to be.
As you know, I thoroughly enjoy incorporating my own style into the season. Since fall is here, I felt it would be nice to illustrate how the decor of the season would feel right at home in the outdoors.
Welcome to my back patio…..
While enjoying the outdoor space, I personally want to feel the season that is upon us. After I climb out of bed and fix myself a hot tea, I venture outside to our back patio. Here, I can curl up with at least one pup and take in the crisp, cool fall air and gather my thoughts for the day.
It’s also a perfect evening spot for a glass of wine or for dinner as you may have read about in my recent Tips for Hosting a Perfect Dinner Party.
The cable knit throw softens the space while adding texture simultaneously. Plus, it keeps me warm (and I’m always cold, so this is a good thing).
My patio is covered, so I am able to use some of the same throws and pillows out here when the weather is mild.

A few subtle pops of floral color provide depth against the more demure palate of whites and creams.
Lanterns are so versatile that I use them all over our home. They work fixed atop a table as well as on the floor here. I love to light the candles in the evening.

Tabletop accessories complete the look.

Where did you buy the standards, holding the small candles, on the left of your foto?
They are so cute:)
Thank you! I wish I could help you, but it’s a very old piece that I bought from a friend when she was moving.

Jen! Your patio is fantastic! And those lanterns! I am super jealous because mine looks more like a desert wasteland right now… topped with faded pillows from summer :/
Thank you and you are too funny! Mine was looking a little rough a week ago….too hot to enjoy until fall!
Jen, this is such an beautiful, inviting space! Love all of your fall decor and I pray we are fortunate enough to end up with so much greenery in our back yard in Houston. Right now mine kind of looks just like what Kelley said, literally;)
Love your patio i am stumped when it comes to planting flowers in pots which greens did you plant here?
Hi Lisa! Thank you. I planted mandevilla, mums, bougainvillea and the cone shaped trees are ligustrum topiaries. All do well in pots in Houston.
Lol! Is Houston a sure thing yet? The north side is all forest land, so your odds are good! It’s my favorite thing about this area for sure!
Thank you for your kind words!
Looks like a great place for girlfriends to hang out, chat about the day and drink wine at the same time.. Just lovely.
Thank you Mae! Yes to all of the above!
What do you have on your table? A blanket or table cloth? Which one and what color is it?
It is a white linen table cloth. Hope this helps!
