we’re finally posting the photos from our patio makeover project. sarah sherman samuel designed the space and did a phenomenal job. i couldn’t love hanging out there more! the space already came with the hanging lights and that rad tile, but other than that it was a blank canvas for sarah to design with. you can shop from all the resources below…

and thanks tessa for the pretty photos!
