Modern Outdoor Kitchen Reveal

Happy Friday!  Since my son is out for the summer I have been getting the dates and days a little messed up, but I still know when the weekends are here. I’m glad you came back today to check out the final reveal of my modern outdoor kitchen. If you missed the first part of the outdoor reveal you can check that out here. I hope you enjoy this one.  You can definitely use it for some inspiration if you are redoing your yard or you’re just looking for a couple updates.  You’d be amazed what a couple pillows, some flowers and an umbrella can do to a yard.

Those of you who have been on my blog a long time know my signature colors are black, white and blush pink.  That is what I chose to decorate the outside with this year.  However, last year I used black and a lime green color.  To check out last year’s colors you can catch that here.

These chaise lounges and cushions were purchases from Frontgate and have held up nicely.  They are so comfortable that I often fall asleep outside.

All the outdoor appliances came from East Coast Leisure.  The grill is a Bull Barbecue Angus Grill with a 30″ door and drawer combo.  We also have a fridge and sink.  The stain on the pergola is Special Walnut.  we went with a medium shade to go with our furniture and roof color on our house.

The black and white throw blankets and lumbar pillows are from Target.   They are the perfect accessories for those chilly nights when the sun goes down.

These pink salad dishes are the new ones from Target’s Opal House collection.  The white dinner plates are my favorite from the Emma set at Pottery Barn.  They are classic and I use them as a base for all my tablescapes.

This gorgeous flower arrangement is from Grandin Road, the pillows are from West Elm,  and the lanterns are from Pier 1.

I love how these baskets from Target give this console table a finished look. In the winter I use these in my mudroom for gloves and hats.

This square fire pit was built for backyard entertaining.

The marble on top of the fire pit and outdoor kitchen was purchased from Rock Solid in VA Beach, Virginia.  I don’t remember the exact slab we used, but my consultant was Courtney and she is amazing.  If you’re in the Hampton Roads area and want her contact information just let me know.

The inside glass pieces were purchased from American fire Glass and are 1/4″ black.  We love making s’mores and hanging out by the fire when we swim at night. The fire pit really does help extend the season well into the fall.

I love that the outdoor area also has a fan and lights on the 4 columns for using at night.  The lights were bought from Ferguson.  Then of course we have flood lights on the house and up lighting in the mulch beds.

Adding landscaping around your entertaining area can give it that detail to finish the look. If you want to go the extra mile and take on this job you may want to hire a landscaper who knows what plants, shrubs and trees grow best in your area. We did this and it was the right decision.  We love the finished product.

I had a great time styling this outdoor space for you. Even though my pillows are for the outdoors, I do bring them on my covered porch after using them just to keep them in the best condition as possible.  You don’t have to, but I feel that sun, rain, and other damage destroys them quite quickly.  I do leave my cushions out there unless there is a huge storm where I think they are going to blow away.

Yours Truly,

Jenn
