Design Board - Swanky Summer Patio

Come summertime, I love to be outdoors, especially in the evening, and even more so if there is a pool around!! Since we've moved into our home, we've done a lot of improvements to the patio (check it out here), and I really love the way it looks, but I'm still not convinced that it's "finished"! There's still so much yet to be done with the yard itself, but I'm happy with what we have!

As I was reading through my daily catalogs (thanks to the awesome app Catalog Spree - great for so many reasons) I saw these items and drifted off into design dreamland...how could I make my patio look like this!! Imagine the parties you could host! Throw in the pool, and all I can say is W-O-W!!

Number one…I want to live where ever this pool is located!! lol Number two…I love these accessories and see them incorporated into my summer porch very nicely!!
