WOW me Wednesday! Sunny and Sophisticated Outdoor Space

Meet MaxiMeet Maxi, our client’s gorgeous ragdoll. We love our pets like children around here, so we had to share this photo of Maxi enjoying the comfort of this newly upholstered outdoor sofa. We used long lasting and high quality outdoor fabrics from Sunbrella and Schumacher to bring this outdoor space to life. For today’s Wow Me Wednesday we’re sharing before and after photos of a backyard that is perfect for our client who lives and loves to entertain.

The YardI love including fire and water features in my outdoor designs. We added a contemporary glazed ceramic fountain to the landscaping to bring serenity and a touch of bold color. The fountain also adds interest along the stairway to the upper level of the backyard where we placed a wrought iron table and chairs, creating the perfect setting for wine for two! Container gardening works well for our client because she can bring her potted plants indoors to keep them alive through winter on the East Coast. We also replaced terracotta planters throughout the space with modern ceramic pots in yellow and espresso colors.

Seating for 7

We accessorized the main seating area of this sunny and sophisticated outdoor space with recycled plastic side tables, a wrought iron coffee table and three over-sized candle holders. The space is defined by an 8′ x 10′-6″ all-weather area rug. We were able to find a sofa to add seating for three with the exact same elegant scroll as the accent chairs. The two chairs and new outdoor sofa were custom covered in Ralph Lauren Home Sunbrella fabric in a fun, bright yellow and complemented by accent pillows in a dramatic medallion print from the Trina Turk collection for Schumacher. I love mixing bold colors and patterns, so I’m thrilled when a client is on board!

Bench Fabric by Trina Turk

We created fully custom cushion and accent pillows for the bench. The seat cushion is covered it in funky chevron outdoor fabric also from Trina’s collection with Schumacher.

We shared more on this project in our May Newsletter of Wine|Dine|Design. Click here to sign up to receive our next newsletter September 1st. Just as this stunning space was made possible by clothing designer Trina Turk’s fabric collection for Schumacher, we’ll be talking about how fashion trends crossover into interior design. We’ll kick off “From the Runway to Robin Bond Interiors” with our next newsletter September 1st and share crossover trends with you every Friday in September and October.
