As we somehow have suddenly jumped into summer, the warmth of it invites, pulls and gravitates us to the outdoors. Interior design certainly does not have to stop with the interior of your home. The surrounding gardens and outdoor living spaces can be designed to compliment the interior spaces. Creating a comfortable extension of usable living space outdoors which is enticing enough so you will want to spend more time outside enjoying the simple pleasures in life. Perhaps with some reading, or entertaining a few friends, sipping home made
ice tea wine, and watching kids play.
I have the opportunity to work with wonderful clients who desire just that type of space. The challenge is to create their odd sized outdoor deck that has an amazing view where they can do all those things in life we wish we found the time to do more often.

The process of finding all the perfect elements for this concept were a bit of a daunting. The options for tasteful, durable, attractive, functional outdoor pieces were hard to find. But with much perseverance, I do believe the end result will turn out to be a stunning, pleasant place to enjoy. But for that…….you will have to wait till it is all done. Stay tuned :)
What makes an outdoor space livable for you?
