A little bit of inspiration: patio chic pt 1

I recently had my garage demolished. It was old, falling apart and taking all the space in our backyard. Now I have a decent space to do a patio. I want a really modern urban garden. Here is some of my inspiration.

A little bit of inspiration: brick backsplash

love the industrial but old look of this kitchen but my main inspiration here is the kitchen backsplash. Love the texture it gives to the wall and the fact that it goes all the way to the ceiling.

I recently stumble on Decor8 on this great company called Squint. Their upholstery are simply amazing, true work of arts. Love their patchwork of fabric and colors. A true inspiration!
I have a antique Louis XV chaise that needs a little bit of love. The fabric has beens a little bit to much loved by my 2 cats and their claws. I think the patchwork look of Squint could be a great look for my chaise. What do you think?
