A Playful Patio: reveal!

To my way of thinking, outdoor rooms are an extension of the spaces that connect with them and should visually relate. With the abundance of amazing furniture, fabrics and accessories on the market these days, it's fun to pull together a patio, deck or loggia. 

My client's patio opened off of the cheery sunroom we created making it important to continue the bold color palette.

From the sunroom to the patio and back, the spaces needed to work together.



A colorful stripe fabric made into seat cushions and pillows helps do the job.
 
 
My client and I explored several options for creating shade on this very sunny patio (i blogged about one here) and ultimately the decision was made to go with two large umbrellas, one for the dining area and another, with a flexible, cantilevered design, for the seating area. We also opted for a neutral color instead of the bold orange in my original design.

What a difference the perfect fabric and a few well placed accessories can make in the outcome of a room's design....taking it from this....

to this!
An 80's karioke party with a group of girlfriends served as the official unveiling of this Playful Patio, how fun!

What tricks do you have for knitting together your outdoor and indoor spaces?

Does your room need a “prescription” for a change of decor, function or design? If so please contact me, I would love to help your room feel better with a Room Rx.

Love those cushions on the dining table chairs (and the chairs too) - it really does flow nicely from indoor to outdoors. And what a great idea for a kick-off party - no doubt they had a wonderful fun time doing karaoke. Great work Cathy - and nice photos!
