Wednesday Wall2Wall ☆ Grandma’s Country Patio

July 19, 2011

I’m a big fan of my husband’s grandma’s home. I find her home absolutely breathtaking even though I tend to be attracted to a modern simplistic style. As my last Wednesday Wall2Wall post, I wrote about her country style kitchen. This time I would like to show you her gorgeous patio and how she decorated it using colors. We have a balcony in our residence in Jakarta, but we don’t have a patio. Still it gives me ideas how I should design my balcony to make it look better just by observing how my grandma decorates.

夫の祖母の自宅は、私がとても憧れる家です。私はシンプルでモダンなスタイルに惹かれる傾向がありますが、夫の祖母の家はとても素敵だと思います。前回の水曜日の記事には、彼女のカントリースタイルのキッチンを紹介させていただきました。今回は、彼女の素敵なパティオ(お庭)を紹介し、夫の祖母がどのように色を使って飾られているかお見せしたいと思います。私たちのジャカルタの自宅にはベランダがありますが、パティオはありません。それでも、彼女の飾り方を見ていると、自宅のバルコニーをどうやって飾ったら良いかの参考になります。

Our girls loved playing with their daddy in their great-grandma’s swimming pool when we visited her. Once they had enough time in the water, they enjoyed basking in the sun surrounded by beautiful flowers of which their great-grandmother takes a good care. It was a perfect way to spend a day during our summer vacation.

私たちの娘2人は、私たちがテキサス滞在中に遊びに行ったひいおばあちゃんの家のプールでパパと一緒に遊ぶのが、とても楽しかった様です。十分プールの水で遊んだ後、ひいおばあちゃんが手入れをしてくれている奇麗な花に囲まれて、暖かい太陽の下でひなたぼっこを楽しんでいました。のんびりとした時間は、私たちの夏休みには申し分の無い日となりました。

    I enjoyed reading about your family’s stay in Texas! The pictures of kitchen, patio, and other cute little stuff around the house are very impressive and I dream of being in that kind of house someday in my life! Enjoy the vacation:-)

    Her place is breathtaking indeed. And I too am not a fan of country, but when other people do it right, it is so pretty and so cozy!! Your pictures really show the beauty of her home!
