What an unbelievably gloomy day here in the Big Smoke, my Hunter boots are getting a real workout! On the sunny side, there’s been some progress with the backyard reno, so I thought I’d share a few quick tidbits to get you up to speed.
Starting with the juiciest nugget first, we bought a fire pit! A legit, marvellously modern, glorious bowl o’ flames to stare endlessly at whilst listening to the heartbreaking sounds of the baby racoons squeal and the constant rumble of the streetcar passing by, aaaahhhh city life.
She glows like a bride on her wedding day and I have to admit it’s kinda starting to feel like a hip boutique hotel back there.
We've also settled on the stone for the patio, a little less exciting I know, but we’re going with an ivory limestone, called Banas Stone, large format 24”x36”, fewer lines, more sleek. They didn't have a pic on their website of the ivory, it's a new colour so we lucked out, but it looks similar to this.
We purchased 2 of these side chairs for the patio; I think we need a third now that I see the massive scale of the fire pit. Sometimes Ikea rocks my world; these are a direct nod to the mid-century mod butterfly chairs designed by one Jorge Ferrari-Hardoy .
