#dwellondesign 2013: outdoors, gardens and patios (oh my)

Today may be my favorite post. I love garden and patio stuff. When we redo our kitchen, I plan to upgrade an interior courtyard immediately adjacent to the kitchen including roofing it, and making it an outdoor living space. So I am actively hunting down ideas.

The entire middle of the #DwellonDesign convention center space was called Dwell Outdoor. On with the show.

These large Pebbles from EIS Studio are sculptural and provide excellent seating. Duly noted.

I am a huge fan of Terra Trellis and plan to purchase one of these clever, art-like trellises.

I have just the spot in our newly landscaped strip of garden. The trellises come in a huge variety of colors.

Terra Trellis' latest creation is a sculpture for the garden.  Check out all their products here. You'll be amazed.

Next up, a clever idea. These giant over-sized pots are painted in such brilliant colors. Awesome. But how in the world would you get them home?

They look like a massive Asian ceramic jars. Surprise! They are entirely plastic and super light (although huge). By Tournesol Siteworks -- Aquarian Collection Pots.

Here is kind of an interesting idea. It's a casual outdoor table.

No! It's a fire pit.

 But wait, it's the lid to the fire pit. This product is by Spark and is called The Cube.

This company, Planters Unlimited, makes all types of outdoor furniture and planters. And fake greenery walls.

The furniture looks pretty solid, and not fakey.

Outdoor furniture by Half13, Damian Velasquez. The furniture is stainless steel powder-coated. I think it would be okay outdoors, under a patio cover?

Shades of Green has some outdoor furniture pieces that I found stunning. Very playful, but super durable, practical, and colorful. Yum!

Last up, my mom had to strongly resist this garden piece. It is called the Nourishmat.

It comes pre-planted with perfectly spaced vegetables. And it has its own irrigation system. A box garden to go. Good idea, right?

I do so love landscaping and garden. The #DwellOnDesign show ends up being an excellent two-fer. An indoors and outdoors show-in-one.

Tomorrow, we will wrap up with the fifth DwellonDesign post, entitled simply "Odds and Ends." But still most excellent.

    1. Even though I want an endless supply of cash, there is some joy in the way we pine away for stuff, fantasy shop online & at shows like this, save our pennies and then the thrill on the day we buy that thing we really want, and have the perfect place for. It is a process, to be savored and appreciated. :)

    1. Thanks so much!!! I had a lot of fun walking the show and then re-living it. When I go through the pictures, it gives me time to appreciate and consider everything I have seen as well.
