As seen on HGTV's Good Bones, Mina and Karen created a functional, inviting outdoor space by building a deck onto the back of this newly residinged home. The team added stylish, modern furniture with pops of red to complement the gray of the siding and the furniture, making this new space warm and inviting.
Beautiful concrete hardscaping adds dimension to this outdoor space. Wood decking looks beautiful against the harder concrete finishes. Light wicker furniture and a light wood coffee table create a cozy outdoor living area, and plants bring natural color to the space.
The curvy lines of a contemporary rug are mimicked in fun outdoor furniture, creating a chic spot for lounging on this rooftop terrace. Ottomans offer versatile extra seating, and a trio of side tables means guests don't have to reach far for their drinks. Planters of varying heights add bursts of color to the space's neutral palette.
“To create this peaceful retreat above bustling Center City Philadelphia, we selected natural materials and finishes to bring softness and comfort to what had been a barren rooftop,” says designer Barbara Eberlein. “Teak furniture does not need to be stored indoors during the winter,” she notes, and “direct sunlight is mitigated with enormous cantilever umbrellas.” Get the same effect in your own city sanctuary with a single umbrella and a cushy all-weather armchair.
As seen on Beach Flip, contestants Melissa and Mahdi repainted the street side office balcony from the outdated, faded green to a fresh coastal green and added new deck furniture at the renovated Coastal Calm condo. (after 197)
To keep the backyard consistent with the interior of the home, the designers outfitted the raised deck with furniture in similar colors, like blues and corals. Here, cushioned lounge chairs offer space for sunbathing, while synthetic turf below gives the clients' children room to tumble.
