Helping you DESIGN the Life of Your Dreams DeAnnaRadaj...Helping You Design the Life of Your Dreams From the Outside In
...Look to your OUTDOOR space for increasing your living and/or entertaining space! I just got back from Spring Fling at the Merchandise Mart-Chicago & tips, colors & new furniture trends for the outside were front & center! Here's what I saw:
John Gidding on Outdoor Architecture & Furniture:
John showed some of his Before/After projects from his HGTV show, Curb Appeal & Curb Appeal: the Block, as well as some of his custom furniture he's incorporated into his designs. Some VERY cool benches for porches & patios & yes, I'd love to implement MY spin on this. His main tip: Stay true to the architecture of the home, have fun, & don't be afraid of color!
***I had the pleasure of interviewing John at the Milwaukee NARI Fall Home & Garden Show! Here's the radio interview from the CasaVerde radio show & the corresponding article. He's gracious, engaging & incredibly talented as you'll see & hear from the interviews. ***
I had the pleasure of interviewing showroom manager, Stephanie Fishel for a series of minis for the Bante Design youtube channel. Check out Outdoor Fabrics & Outdoor Furniture Trends by clicking on the links. Trends I saw here included:
mixing of materials (rattan, wood & metal, rattan & metal, wood & metal), double chaises are HOT & outdoor furniture imitating its indoor counterparts so that it can be used indoors as well as for outdoor use.
Finally, here are some tips I incorporate for my design clients:
