One of the things I’ll miss most about this home is the outdoor living space. The view is what originally sold me on this home, and the back deck has seen many memorable days and nights.
Apart from adding furniture, a grill and TV over two years ago—nothing else has really changed out here aside from the occasional pillow swap. So when Wayfair asked me to demonstrate how to mix and match patterns, I decided to show the deck a little love for one last hurrah. Click to watch (and thumbs up and comment if you can!) below:
A fun patterned rug was brought in (I’m all about the rug layering lately) along with a few new pillows and blankets. Bringing new life to the space was as simple as that!
The look could have gone in many different directions, but I used the rug as my jumping off point for color scheme and style.
With navy blue as my primary color, I brought in greens, browns and khaki for some variation without overdoing it.
The patterns play off of each other nicely and there’s a good mix of them to create interest.
Solid cushions tie it all together, and a wide range of textures complete the look.
Small details (including greenery, real or faux—a must for every space!) add the finishing touches.
While shooting these images I realized that the colors I used were all exact matches to the landscape in the background. I don’t think I could have planned that better.
It’s sad to think I’ll be giving up this space soon, but I have a feeling the new owners will love it just as much as I did. At least I still have the memories 🙂
Next week is my last Wayfair video! The timing works out well as now I have more time to focus on getting a plan together for moving out (still don’t have an exact date yet though, unfortunately). Anyone have any good moving tips? I’m relocating almost everything to a storage unit so I need to be as organized as possible to reduce future headaches. Any suggestions are welcome!
Vlog Episode 21 is coming up next. Enjoy your last official week of Spring!
