Client Project - Patio Design Board


Hey guys, wow it's cold outside, and all this snow we're having in November is just crazy!   So today I thought I'd warm things up with a patio or screened porch Design Board  I made for a client about a month ago.

This wonderful client moved into her home and immediately realized her huge screened porch needed more furnishings and accessories.  She did have a patio furniture set with green cushions.  However that was all and the set was looking very small in this big space that clearly needed pillows, poufs and other outdoor furnishings and accessories to complete the room.  Oh and one more thing, she wanted color!  Ahhh, the words every decorator wants to hear.  But this is also a space where her husband hangs out a lot watching football.  So I knew the design couldn't be too femanine.  So I made two design boards from which they could choose...

So which design do you like better?  I think it really depends on your personality.  The first board is more neutral with a soft blue/green color scheme.  And the second board is straight up colorful with this vibrant orange.  Both are fun and will really bring this awesome screened porch to life!  My client actually chose the second.

Here are the sources...

Happy Snowvember ;)
