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
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!
