Looking to update your outdoor space this season? Instead of taking in a vacation this year, consider a staycation and invest in a luxury resort in your own backyard. Here’s how my friend finalized her makeover.

Shopping has always been one of her favorite pastimes, so naturally she personally furnished and decorated her new outdoor space. After she went into every detail of her renovation and the unforeseen challenges with various vendors, she finally started to talk about her new luxurious patio furniture.

Lloyd Flander’s Contempo collection was exactly the look she was going for and had multiple pieces to chose from. The dark outdoor wicker furniture collection features designs that are modern yet classic. The Contempo dining set was the perfect size for her immediate family. But she loves to entertain and knew she would need more room for family and friends coming over, so she went big on the sitting area. The matching Contempo Curved Sectional is a beautiful, curved sectional sofa with matching wedge end tables that makes for a sizable gathering area. The dark wicker frame and plush outdoor cushions provide luxury seating for up to eight people. Plus, the matching round fire pit with eco-friendly fire glass gives off such a clean burn that you don’t mind being around it for long periods of time. No soot, just stunning. The champagne colored reflective glass was absolutely mesmerizing at night.

Moving onto the side deck, she lined up four of the Contempo pool chaise loungers and added custom fabric umbrellas and matching Contempo square end tables. Simply fantastic. With all the furniture in, the vision of her luxurious backyard resort was finally complete.

All that was needed was a few outdoor accessories . She put on the final touches with patterned outdoor pillows, hanging fans and elegant planters filled with vibrant flowers. They also surrounded the deck with aluminum garden torches to keep bugs away, add light, and create a cool ambiance.

Her backyard had transformed into a luxury resort that they can enjoy everyday of the year. I left her house determined to create the same escape for my home… Stay-cation, here I come!
