a little outdoor slice of heaven

If there’s anything I love more than a beautifully weathered, shingle-style chic cottage, it’s an equally beautiful porch or patio in which to enjoy said cottage.  I’m sure by now you’ve all seen Chris Burch’s Southampton home tour that was featured in Architectural Digest a while back, but Mackenzie Horan’s personal photos of the exterior of his house on a recent trip to the Hamptons had me drooling all over my laptop!  The shot below is deceiving – the house is actually huge, but this side view makes it look quaint and so, so charming – cedar shakes, crisp white trim, that second floor balcony overlooking the pool, climbing roses and boxwoods, boxwoods and more boxwoods.  Just perfection:

Following Friday’s post, I think a Lutyens bench would look fabulous in this outdoor space so I went with it and added some navy blue, stripes, string lights, a metal garden orb and, of course, topiary for table tops!  Here is how I would bring an outdoor space together if this were my home:

bench / chippendale planter / monogram pillow / garden orb / stripe pillow

knot mat / topiary / string lights

Happy Tuesday!  Hope you’re having a great week!
