Outdoor, UncategorizedColorful Outdoor Deck E-Design July 28, 2012 By classiccasualhome 31 Comments The thing about e-design is that is saves you money but you have to do all the running around. Dana wanted to wait to show her deck until after four of the sconces below were installed… But lots of times, e-clients (you know who you are) never send me the completed photos. AND, I wanted to show you this while it’s still summer. Dana’s family likes color, especially red. Here is the before photo. She said the teak set could go but I said “I love to use what you already have… when it’s GOOD.” And after…imagine this with the new cool lights and red seat cushions on the teak chairs. Dana wanted to use the green garden stools (nice) and they were on sale at Ballard. It’s a good time to take advantage of summer sales on outdoor furniture. Here it is with the rug going the opposite way…which I might like better. If Dana was not an eight hour drive away, I would go over in the evening, have a glass of wine and play with putting a garden stool in the middle of the teak chairs and one at the end of the sofa on the right. I would also bring over the lanterns and tray from the mood board. Or perhaps we’d just relax, like Lucy above, and enjoy the view of the flowers and pool… So, that’s the downside of e-design for me… I don’t get to see the space or new friends, like Dana, in person…but it is still fun.
