FOR THE HOME: our outdoor living room
Our rooftop deck is without a doubt my favorite “room” of the apartment. It is like a second living room outside. During the colder months of the year, I often feel like we’ve outgrown the place, but once summer comes around we gain an extra room and all of a sudden I am madly in love our home again. Over the years, the deck has developed into a place where we spend most of our free time with lots of friends. Spontaneous BBQs are an essential part of summer and long nights spent outside under the stars with a good glass of wine make me the happiest. Over the years, I have been adding to the deck, making occasional changes and slowly turning it into my personal perfect outdoor space for summer. Even though I loved the way the space came together last year, the one thing that was always missing in my opinion was a big dining table for all of us to sit down together for the meals instead of trying to balance plates on our knees in the lounge area. Thanks to WestwingNow and their amazing outdoor selection, I was able to fulfill my dream this summer with the most perfect outdoor dining table ever (and matching lounge table)! It spaciously seats 6 but also has plenty of room for 8 people, which we tested last night with a big BBQ and 7 friends until 2am. Aside from the table I also wanted to update the plants a tiny bit and had this certain image stuck in my head ever since our trip to Barcelona. Big, dark green leaves in beautiful white pots. Finally found the right plants yesterday and now I am officially done with the outdoor living room – just in time for the weekend ♥
