It took some time for Summer to emerge from behind the curtains of clouds and wet weather, but now she is in full sweltering glow. Like a Diva who shows up late but never disappoints, Summer is finally ready for her close up and along with it, my dramatic & colourful terrace!
I decorate outside no different from the way I would inside. I like to borrow design cues from my interiors, like bold colour, scale, proportion, and interesting texture combinations and apply them out under the sun. Let me invite you to enjoy a private look at my very photogenic patio featuring confident colour, exuberant flair and a little DIY attitude!
Adventurous Colour CombinationsFor 2013 (every year I switch things up) I wanted to reinvent our terrace and incorporate hot juicy colour . Striking Hot Pink custom cushions on the love seat are the visual anchor and I accessorized the rest of the patio around that colour.
Pink, is fresh, flirty and paired with an array of chartreuse and orange pillows looks exotic. Everyone looks pretty sitting on pink! Be adventurous and play with colour combinations - choose one hue that will dominate more than the rest and let other tropical hues add to the heat.
