The Bueno Oasis
Good Morning! I'm so stoked to finally share what I've been working on over the past two months. Since moving out to the country last year, I've felt like The Home Depot has been my home away from home, so teaming up with them to create an outdoor living space was perfect.

To create my own slice of paradise to enjoy and share with the awesome folks in my life.

Life in a city can be so fast and noisy. I want my home to be an oasis for me and anyone that makes the drive out. I don't want to take the stress and noise of the day home with me. When I'm home alone or entertaining friends and family, I want us all to feel relaxed, inspired, and loved. I'm a firm believer in calling things into existence (thank you Mom + Pops), so from the start, I decided to call this place, The Bueno Oasis. (you can see all our Bueno Oasis adventures using the hashtag #TheBuenoOasis on IG)

Things that make me happy. I love the way colors pop against the bleached out sand on the beach. With that in mind, I went to the Home Depot paint department and pulled 5 main colors and 3 sub colors that I committed to throughout the project. While pulling colors I was thinking about all the brightly colored chalky Tex-Mex walls I've come across on road trips, the saturated colors of my serapes, and bleached out colors in old beach towels & umbrellas.

WHAT I ADDED (words are linked below)///
2 Cinderblock Benches
Fresh paint jobs on planters, cinderblocks, stepping stones, picnic table, and porch table

This project is far from over, but I’ve reached a nice point where I can share it with you and enjoy it for myself. Stay tuned for more updates on these areas – fire pit, front porch and the GARDEN before the end of the summer. I can’t wait!!

BUENO BUENO X HOME DEPOT /// Brandi's Backyard



The project goal ///
To create a space that we could entertain family/ friends or have quiet times in the morning. My goal is for everyone to feel like they are on vacation in my backyard.

My color inspiration was my Endless Summer poster that is hanging in my dining room and various mexican prints. I wanted lots of pink along with other bright happy colors.

I decided I wanted to make more seating and I saw THIS BENCH on Pinterest. I also wanted to make this cinder block plant wall that I saw in Costa Rica. I ended up combining the two ideas and I am super happy about it.

During this project I realized how much I love working on the yard. The brainstorming, the trips to home depot, getting dirty and sweaty and seeing your backyard transform. I don't think I will ever be completely finished with my backyard because I can already think of the next project and I am excited to get working again!
