I love to travel and I often daydream about living in a part of the world that has the four seasons. Yes, even snow! I was born in Jamaica and raised in South Florida and grew up in tropical environments surrounded by exotic flowers and native tropical plants. Melding my indoor design with outdoor spaces is second nature to me.
As a professional designer, I like to bring luxury resort style living to the outdoor areas of my home. As such, I encourage my clients to enjoy Florida living and create outdoor spaces for lounging every day. Go outside and have fun in the sun. After all, isn’t that why we live in Florida?
There are a couple of jaw-dropping outdoor design collections that I am in love with and want to share with you. Are you looking for an exterior couch that gives you the same comfortable feeling as your indoor couch? If so, check out the outdoor options available to you.
Ballard Design Sullivan Collection
The grey wash frame keeps this collection on trend. This collection features airy architectural frames, wide sloping arms and deep seating sofas for comfort. On the practical side, the Sunbrella fabric that encases the cushions is water repellant and easy to clean making it a win-win for outdoor use Check it out at www.ballarddesigns.com.
Another fun and playful line I’m loving is by Selamat Designs. Their outdoor products are outrageous! The colors make me feel like it is spring time all year long. One of my favorites is the Regeant 4 Season Sofa in Blue. This piece was reimagined for four-season outdoor use in powder-coated aluminum with Sunbrella fabric and loose quick dry pillows.
The Mayfair Bistro Table which I feature in grey is inspired by French wire design. The top view of this table features a daisy pattern from the Florence Broadhurst Collection and will give your patio or balcony a modern twist on a French bistro look. This table paired with the matching Bistro chair, which has a fun oval back and features a die cut design is available in white, verbena, and dove grey. These are all stylish options to show guests your refined, fashionable and fun side. www.selamatdesigns.com.
For my clients that have concerns with upholstered furniture in the outdoors…there is finally a designer who has come up with a comfortable solution for rattan furnishings, The Ballard Design Bunny Williams La Colina collection offers a comfy washable line that my germ-a- phobic friends can all embrace.
What is great about this product is that the table base and chair frames are strong, yet lightweight aluminum. The dark charcoal finish harmonizes with the natural surroundings. They are powder-coated to resist rust and moisture and the foam seats allow water to drain through. Let me translate that for you-NO MOLD! An additional benefit, you have a comfortable seating area in your outdoor space. View the Ballard Designs line at www.ballarddesigns.com.
