Patio ready for Spring! (Patio reveal x 2)

Good morning y’all! Happy Monday!

This patio reveal is brought to you with a little twist - read until the end to see what it is ;)

Just a little background info:

Client’s design wants & needs:

  • lots of seating for guests and hosting

  • functional design (for toddler + cute pup)

  • fun and fresh color pallet

  • to not spend a fortune on a space that’s out under the elements

  • coziness

    How we accomplished this:

  • selected a custom pillow combination to bring in lots of color

  • a fun outdoor rug to ground the (large) deck space

  • brought in lots of plants and greenery

  • poufs for additional seating/kid friendly

  • garden stools for drinks and added surface space

  • a classic colored umbrella for practical reasons to also for added layers

  • STRING LIGHTS ..because, come on.. you can’t have an outdoor space with no lights

    Here’s the design concept we put created for this sweet family:

This is what the process looks like before the furniture gets ordered and arrives! (measuring out the selections and the space and TAPING EVERYTHING OFF ;))

Okay, are you ready to the see the beautiful transformation!? Now, this sweet family can enjoy cocktails and charcuterie and everything in between ..

This drink looks so refreshing right?! A little perk of the job; getting to have a cold cocktail after all was said and done! Go check out A Barley Life Blog to see the full recipe and other amazing recipes! She has the best party hosting tips too for Spring!

The furniture set was super affordable for this type of space and was the perfect fit for an active family and for the deck area to not be covered — it will be able to withstand most all of the elements that we experience here at the coast (except for maybe a hurricane, of course)

A little plot twist is: Kevin and I loved their furniture and rug so much that we decided we would try out the same patio set for our back deck + a different color way in the rug! (but it truly one of my favorite things!

Here’s a peak into our patio reveal, though we are still waiting on our umbrella and a few more accessories (full and final reveal will come soon!)

These two beauties come in various sizes and can be ordered through Sarah Scott Designs! (just shoot us an email if you’d like to add this statement piece to your deck or patio!)

Other than the rug, my absolute favorite part of our little patio refresh are the Laura Park Designs pillows! (a Charlotte based artist that I love and have used for other clients’ artwork in their homes!)

They add so much brightness and uniqueness to the space! When they arrived, I literally did a happy dance.

I think all in all, when creating an outdoor space, make sure to have comfy seating, lots of plants and greenery, pillows and patterns that speak to you and (in most cases) a rug for grounding.

Happy Spring you guys, get outside!

Airlie Road Refresh / Dining Space & Kitchen

Whew! Happy Wednesday! I am so excited to share this reveal with you all! It was so fun working with these clients on this dining space and kitchen area! I know I say this a lot, but having super trusting clients makes such a huge difference in the overall design and the process of bringing everything to life!

Client’s design wants:

  • fresh new feel

  • coastal/traditional style

  • Keep dining chairs and table

  • Create a fun but sophisticated vibe

We Brought in/created:

  • a fresh new lighting plan

  • incorporated existing art from another room to use as our color pallet

  • selected new barstools to add some character

  • added (2) WOW pendants & beaded chandelier!

  • brought in sconces to showcase the art piece!

  • New, bold rug for contrast (and runner)

  • Fun, new brass hardware

  • a delightful table scape to top it all off

Attention to detail for each of these spaces was key! We were able to make HUGE changes without starting completely from scratch! These sweet clients can now enjoy their new entertaining area just in time for spring and summer nights!

Above was our ‘final selections’ board & here is how we brought it all to life:

I loved adding even more customization to this design by monogramming the linen napkins for table settings!

We also found the perfect floral pieces from Trader Joes (of course) .. because can you ever go wrong with their floral selections?!

The NAVY LANTERN pendants for the island were one of my favorite things about these the kitchen area! To see what a huge impact they made on the space, absolutely blew my mind! Y'all, lighting is so important! The scale of it, the quantity, the quality, and the overall vibe of the lighting can make or break a room!

This is one of my favorite angles of the space because you can see the navy area rug we chose for the dining space to add lots of contrast, the beautiful art on show case, & the big statement our new chandelier makes in the dining area!

(An added bonus was being able to select these pillows for the adjoining living space to tie in the rest of the spaces we worked on! I loved seeing the light, neutral antelope print against the linen color of the chairs! It’s the perfect combo for coastal and traditional!)

How can you go wrong with brass and bold colors?! This art was amazing and so easy to work with! I love that the sconces made the new home for this pieces even more special!
