This week I am featuring another Design Deconstruction highlighting some rustic Patio Charm (Just in time for the May Long Weekend. Who’s ready for a cold one?). This design comes from the stunning home of Canadian designer Jillian Harris. You may have caught this look in a previous issue of Style At Home where Harris’ home was showcased, but if not here is a peak at the beautiful patio space she has created for her backyard (Seriously. When can I move in?).


Harris’ home is quite soft with lots of white, cream and grey, as well as beautiful feminine touches of blush pink. There is also quite a lot of vintage inspired finds that make her home a fantastic blend of modern, nautical and traditional. What I loved so much about this home was that when you stepped outside to the patio you were transported to an entirely different space. The heavy use of stone and high contrast with the black and white stripe makes this space feel more masculine and rustic. You still get a blend of styles with the country lanterns, modern bar cart and rustic stool but it all comes together for an entirely different design feel. 


The design of this patio makes you feel as though you are on a retreat away from home while still capturing a cozy backyard oasis (Can we just look at that fireplace for a second? Ah-Mazing!). Jillian has created an inviting space for friends and family to gather and settle in (That I am sure many don’t want to leave!). Hosting a backyard get together would be easy in a space like this which is why I have chosen to feature it in this edition of Design Deconstruction.

Wishing everyone a lovely long weekend (hopefully full of beautiful weather) and enjoy some patio living!
