back patio help!

last month

Need help designing and decorating this back patio. Tv stays and can sit flush against wall- but open to change anything and everything else!

We like greens- would love to add plants, trees, etc

    Consider swivel chairs. We also put a TV on our patio but wanted to be able to look at the yard as well. They are also good for conversation.

    I will also be adding some planters under the window and around the patio for some color.

    I would put a large custom wrought sign (maybe saying your last name patio inc 2024 - you can find them on Etsy) or design print on that back wall right behind the sofa. Maybe change out the rug to the green color you like for a little pop of color. Move the 2 chairs to face couch. A white/off white coffee table. Then maybe a couple large planters to flank the TV and add whatever medium to large plants you like in them that do well in shade. Then I would add some decorative outdoor throw pillows and maybe a blanket on the sofa.

    In order to watch tv in the daytime …pull down shades around the whole perimeter …will be helpful to avoid glare …as well as for an element of privacy…in the evenings…..placing the furniture and shades …on the outer border …will make it possible to place the furniture back far enough to view the huge tv more comfortably…a much larger more colorful…plush …rug…will be more inviting..another way to bring life and color to the space would be to paint the ceiling a pale color from the rug…and use that as your accent color for accessories……lastly ..since your furniture seating is very upright I would add lumbar pillows for more relaxed tv viewing…

    If you choose to have live trees/plants…be sure to choose shade lovers..that will survive well with the average amount of natural light and temperature in your space..

    Generally speaking furniture that reclines is favored in these situations…if you want to spoil yourself…but the moveable ottomans are more flexible for arranging when having more guests

    The brick wall that projects out a little ..is an obvious place for a focal point of art or a big decorative metal piece..if that appeals to you..after you have finished the rest

    Even a a metal screen for planting greenery there…
