Before & After: Classic Outdoor Patio
August 04, 2017 in Before & After | 8 comments

One of our longtime client’s brought in our team to help bring our signature classic style to her outdoor patio. We had already designed several spaces in her ‘Spanish Revival’ home, including her front porch. Her outdoor patio, which looks out on to her lush backyard landscape and the family pool, needed to have a cohesive look and feel as inviting as the rest of her home. The outdoor space also had to be kid-friendly and durable as the pool is a popular summer hangout for all the neighborhood kids.

With some help from durable and fun fabrics, her outdoor space was transformed into a chic and livable outdoor retreat!


Our client wanted to keep all of her existing outdoor furniture, but wanted to bring in new accents. She also wanted plenty of seating for entertaining so we moved some pieces around to make the most of her outdoor living space.


A chic black and white outdoor retreat! With the help of an outdoor rug, pillows and poufs, the outdoor patio feels so much more polished and put together. A color palette (or lack thereof) of blacks, grays, and white is always an effortless and classic mix. It also complements her existing furniture and outdoor kitchen finishes.

We added white ceramic garden stools as side tables next to the sofa. They can also be used as extra seating if needed.

Pillows with classic and tailored patterns keep the space stylish. All of the pillows are outdoor safe and are even made with rust proof zipper enclosure. The pillow covers are removable and can be spot treated as needed.

Large striped gray poufs make the space flow and make it feel more open. They provide ample and versatile seating, which was a priority for our client. The material on the poufs is outdoor safe and washable. We can’t help but love the classic stripes!

(We moved the chaise lounges by the pool with a black and white umbrella of course!)

The black and white rug with a geometric diamond pattern ties the room together. It really makes a difference in the space. The rug is easy to clean and it is fade-resistant (a great feature for our hot and sunny Texas summers)!

The new outdoor patio is now a space that the whole family can enjoy. Archie definitely approves of his cool new patio!
