Patio reveal

The weather here in ATL has been so.stinkin'.hot. you sweat doing nothing. But determined and feeling better, I managed to get outside early one morning and wash my slate patio. I used a product called Eco-Wash from HD. With a bit of scrubbing and rinsing, it took the mildew off and didn't harm the surrounding grass or plants. 
Hooray it's finally clean!
Remember my reversible outdoor rugs? Well, I had to try out both sides with my current cushions just to see, 
so I'll ask you to vote again on your favorite side up. I can't decide!





Unfortunately, it's way too hot to enjoy sitting out there right now. Maybe September?! I hope so!

  1. It looks great out there! I like the blue side up better. I think it would stay cleaner.

  2. Looks great and love the water you sit on. I would use the white side now and maybe the darker side when it gets cooler in the fall.

  3. Ooh, I love the rug pattern. I say blue side up because I like how it's less contrast with the slate.

  4. I lurve it all! I'm with Kim. I say lighter side up for summer and later, the darker side. It just looks so lovely & peaceful...

  5. I love the white side with your cushions! It's so SUMMER! You can always use the blue side in the fall with some orange or yellow maybe ;-). And red/white/blue for July 4th. Yes, you'll have to change cushions regularly. By the way - sitting in the Atlanta airport as I type waiting on my connection back to Knoxville! Been in NYC with the kids and the GRAND new granddaughter. Heaven on earth. Hope you're feeling better every single day! XOXO

  9. So pretty! I vote for the darker of the two, but either way is nice.

  10. I'd choose the Blue side up, but you could keep it on white till it gets dirty and flip it (or visa versa). Your back patio and lake are so gorgeous!!!

  11. Whatever you design and put together always looks classy, chic and inviting. :)
