Home Depot Patio Style Challenge 2015 Reveal

You may remember earlier this year when I listed out some goals that I had for 2015. Well working with brands that aligned with the mission behind this blog was definitely on the list. And would you know it, not even a week after publishing that post, I was contacted by Home Depot to participate in their 2015 Patio Style Challenge!! What?? Me?? I don't have a million followers and don't consider myself a pro. My husband said I was crazy for questioning myself so of course I was totally all in.

Fast forward a month or so after I agreed to participate, I was sent the Hampton Bay Pembrey 7-piece Patio Dining Set. This set is beautiful, yall. I must admit that I was stumped as to my design approach because I never thought about designing an outdoor space, and definitely never considered a dining set. Mainly, I was stumped because if you remember, this was the space I had to work with.

I put together a mock designed space based on the elements I felt was important.

A few posts back, I talked to you guys about the elements I wanted to incorporate. Any who, without further ado, here is our new patio space.

I hope you guys enjoyed taking a look at the space. Now, if it will stop raining in Atlanta,  I can actually enjoy it. You can check out my post and tutorials on the cooler and succulent shelf on the Home Depot Apron Blog. Check it out here! I will be back soon to show you how we went about staining our deck on our own.

Until next time!


  1. Luvn the floral pillows, they compliment the tableware without being matchy matchy. And the ferns, I was just looking at some on Friday, I'm worried if they make here up North, I really want to add some to my front, they just add so much flare. You did such a good job for your first collabo, I see many more in your future :)

  2. Erin your patio looks amazing! The furniture, pretty pillows, dishes and that shelf with the succulents... I love it all. You did a fabulous job... :)
