How do I chose what I need for my outdoor living space?

Thursday, September 26th, 2013
How do I chose what I need for my outdoor living space? I go about designing an 
outdoor room from a very playful perspective. Imagine myself in the finished space. If you need to set up placeholders such as marking paint, masking tape or box’s to help your imagination, do so. Taking the time to slow down and imagine the space in use is crucial to helping you find what you will need. Think through how people will move through your space, easily communicate in deep thought with one another, enjoy a fire or cook from the grill. Doing this will help you think of where people will want to sit, where you would need to set down a cocktail, where plantings or containers need to be to screen or accent an area, etc. Help your spouse or client re-imagine themselves experiencing a good time in the space. This, in my opinion, is the only way to get outdoor living to fit you or your clients specific needs and desires
