    Julie you look radiant! This was the most perfect video for me along with how to shop using Pinterest. I was trying to buy a seating set for our patio but was getting so frustrated looking on-line. I’m an in person shopper but couldn’t’t find anything since I live in a rural community. I live amongst farming land so need something made of metal that can easily be hosed down. After 3 weeks of looking, I was going to give up. Now, I have a new method to try! 😊. Does the directions for the iPhone work as well on a iPad? Thanks for sharing your knowledge.

  2. Stella Louca on September 28, 2022 at 7:05 pm

    Love all your videos! Amazing photos and great pictures. The tips are awesome!

    I love your statement “it’s a swinging good time!” Lol

  11. youbetcha108 on September 28, 2022 at 7:18 pm

    Hi Julie
    You look great. I love your suggestions and I did purchase a water feature from Amazon on prime day. But you will be filling up your outdoor space with lots of fun things for the girls. Playhouse, swings, inflatable swimming pool, Elmo sprinkler thingie, child sized table and chairs, small raised beds to let the girls garden. I remember all that. Luckily you will not be keeping any of it for very long. Except I kept the sturdy swing set which is still used. You only need a small fire feature for the family to have a s’more night!! Fun times ahead for you! Funny I brought orange in my home. Paint, pillows blankets. My floors are reddish orange so I just went with it to blend. I’m so glad warm colors came back! Stay pretty! 🤗🤗🥰

  12. MaryLut on September 28, 2022 at 7:19 pm

    Hi, Julie, would you consider a video explaining how to put together a mood board, especially how to know if the items work together or not?

  13. Julie Khuu on September 28, 2022 at 7:20 pm

    I have so many backyard projects on the board: 1) Garden path
    2) New tree swing
    3) Conversation area … the list goes on and on because design is never done! 😅 Which items from this video top your list of to-do’s?

  14. annie mayne on September 28, 2022 at 7:22 pm

    Hardly backyards on a "budget".

  15. Kendra Langdon on September 28, 2022 at 7:23 pm

    Very beautiful outdoor spaces…not budget friendly.

  16. marian frances on September 28, 2022 at 7:24 pm

    Hi Julie! You look great! Congratulations on the baby! Can you make a video on a Tropical backyard please. A tropical Hawaiian backyard. It that redundant?😂

  20. Demacwell Heen on September 28, 2022 at 7:27 pm

    Its not at all on a budget …. not at all

  21. Susanna Potter on September 28, 2022 at 7:29 pm

    Julie thx for all the great ideas🖒

  22. Almeda Maruje Palo y Sali on September 28, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    We would like to see your diy backyard renovation pls.

  23. Tam Rossini on September 28, 2022 at 7:30 pm

    Great ideas– looking forward to your gravel path reveal! I was recently on the hunt for an outdoor dining set on a budget in anticipation of a backyard shindig for my husband’s bday. I scored a teak table and chairs dining set for 6 (expandable to 8) on FB Marketplace for only $100!!! Arranging for delivery (60 miles) cost 3x that, but the set was still an incredible bargain for only $400!! I then went to work and added 2 coats of teak oil and the set is good as new! We must be on the same wavelength because I added thick B&W cabana striped tufted seat cushions and a B&W striped umbrella with built in solar lights. The bday party was a huge success. 🖤🤍🖤

  24. Nadine Christie on September 28, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Oh my! I am late, congratulations on your newest addition to your family! I see this video and notice baby bump is gone. Go to Instagram and see that baby came in May! She is a sweet bundle of cuteness. 💖

  25. Dry Rain on September 28, 2022 at 7:33 pm

    Always get the smokeless fire pit! You’re welcome!

  26. Styled by W.W. on September 28, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Beautiful.

  27. Franklin North on September 28, 2022 at 7:37 pm

    Great Video Julie, We use a small propane firepit on the Boat, the aft cockpit is the perfect conversation area, 1/20th the size of a backyard but still works. At home we have a pond with a recirculating pump for the water feature sounds.

  28. Rejwan Shamsul Kabir on September 28, 2022 at 7:38 pm

    Yeah…. on a "budget".

  29. shoshana bloom on September 28, 2022 at 7:39 pm

    When did you have a baby 🥰. Boy girl? Pictures please. Wonderful news

  30. aqua fina on September 28, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Where’s the budget ideas?

  31. Myra S Green on September 28, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Great ideas to implement ,thanks

  32. Loes on September 28, 2022 at 7:40 pm

    Thanks for this video! Makes it really clear what to think about. Currently planning out our backyard and I love that I now have a simple list of what to keep in mind.

  33. Maria Welling on September 28, 2022 at 7:42 pm

    Hi Julie 👋I’m a new subscriber, I was curious about whether you have ever design a mix of Japanese/ Wabi Sabi/ contemporary designs? ❤️

  34. Maria Olivia Morales on September 28, 2022 at 7:43 pm

    Hi Julie, thank you for the great ideas.
    I will decorate my balcony and your tips are fabulous!!!🫶🏽

  35. elizabeth solano on September 28, 2022 at 7:45 pm

    Thank you 🙏

  36. Maurice Tibble on September 28, 2022 at 7:46 pm

    Thanks Julie for your styling ideas. Does Feng Shui also apply in a outdoor space? Also my bed in my room is in the coffin position and at the foot of the bed is a tall old fashioned wardrobe with a mirror door that faces the door. So will this reflect the negative energy out of the room.

  37. Ekure Edafe Daniel on September 28, 2022 at 7:50 pm

    Cool and amazing

  38. Joy Daniel on September 28, 2022 at 7:51 pm

    I’m trying to renovate my deck so this is perfect timing!

  39. Eddie Alva on September 28, 2022 at 7:54 pm

    Hello from Lima, the largest city on a desert after Cairo. I painted my garden walls sky blue and It gives me the feeling I just travelled to the caribbean.

  40. Kusum Lakshmipathy on September 28, 2022 at 7:56 pm

    Your outdoor spaces were stunning and inviting. Thanks 💐

  41. Estrella Perez on September 28, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    What a lovely video! So many good ideas! Thank you!

  42. MamaJP Petree on September 28, 2022 at 7:57 pm

    I’m pretty much in an opposite situation than you. My yard is 3.3 acres, house tops a hill, long driveway curves around into garages on back/lower side of house..the only flat area is where cars park.🙄
    However the area in front is large & more wide & level. 1 lg oak tree out front us where I hope to place a simple seating bench & shad loving plants around gravel/flagstone(?) area. Challenging to have privacy from street. Plan seating on house side (E) of tree. But first must rebuild wrap around deck…doing it in order is frustrating but necessary. 😉

    Great video Julie! I have a small yard myself. The outdoor spaces is something I have been working on for several years… Baby steps. After saving money for it… We added a raised deck with a cover. We have an outdoor electrical outlet we installed next to the deck so I asked for a string of outdoor light last Christmas… I hung them and it really looks nice! I searched far and wide for thick cushioned comfortable chairs with a high back. I finally found some through Lowes’s and I swear they are so comfortable and even work for short people like me(and the cushions don’t seem to fade much).. I got four of them(they come in sets of two and deliver right to your house) and 3 end tables and got a water fountain to put in the corner with flowers around it. Then. I placed several planters with flowers around it and a couple on the tables. I picked up a gas grill with folding sides that tucks neatly in the corner of the deck(ready to pull out and use) and tada! I have an outdoor oasis and conversation area. It is on the west side of the house so you can watch the sunsets… I also have a back patio that we put a hot tub on that has two tables with some seating around it. This is on the side of the house that gets the afternoon shade and is very private. An outdoor light is there that lights up the area at night. The people that originally built this 1965 rancher put outdoor electrical outlets and lamp posts with lights all around the house. We still added a couple ourselves. We also added a backyard lamp post out in the yard near the deck. It helps light up the deck at night too… We also use solar lights for pathways… They are inexpensive and you can place them around stairs, walkways, etc. In the front we are working on another seating area that is buffered from the street by a large Princeton gold maple for shade. It has an electrical outlet next to it so I think I will add another water fountain. This one I am trying to design for… The ideas you gave me I think will work. I am just stuck on using metal benches and chairs or plastic? Cushions or no cushions? We get harsh weather so I am trying to find something that will hold up to the weather… I am putting down screening and either using pebble stones or 3/4 inch crushed rock with pavers (natural rock or concrete pavers)… Still not sure… With the hot tub patio I used folding chairs that I can pick up and put away when the weather gets bad… And I throw covers on the two tables. I purchased canvas outdoor covers for my furniture on the deck for the Winter weather we get here…

  45. Cynthia Pittard on September 28, 2022 at 7:58 pm

    Wonderful suggestions

  46. Elizabeth Trihub on September 28, 2022 at 7:59 pm

    TY for the tips!!!
    I will implement the orange and the pathway to my garden. Also I’m adding striped curtains to my pergola yay!

  47. Harmony on September 28, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Wonderful ideas Julie. I wish we had more dry days in the uk when I see this. Does your water feature attract more birds and more rodents?

  48. Carrie Karon on September 28, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    Hi Julie, I’m so glad I found your channel.

  49. Krishan Trotman on September 28, 2022 at 8:00 pm

    So helpful!

  50. plasticine1999 on September 28, 2022 at 8:03 pm

    Burnt orange is actually the only non-neutral pop of color my HOA will allow. I think accent pillows like that would look great on beige or gray cushions.

    Of steel, wicker or wood framed lounge seating, which would be easiest to maintain? I sat in a West Elm Porto chair and it’s very comfortable, but the care instructions scare me a bit.
