This is my second collaboration with Outdoor Dreams, the hardscape and landscape architects with which I have recently started working.
In this project, they designed and built this no-maintenance deck that is truly a comfortable and spacious extension of the interior space.
Outdoor Dreams is truly full-service in that they help homeowners fully realize their vision by not only designing and building, but also furnishing the spaces. In this case, the homeowners chose the beautiful Trento collection from Castelle to outfit this exterior room.
I brought in accessories to complement the navy and white palette. A cozy throw, pillows and a pouf to rest your feet and some hot tea and pastries might be all you need on a lazy morning. I love this classic color combination. It's timeless and so pleasing to the eye.
To highlight the fantastic gas grill, we got a little creative. As this shoot was staged to give a casual breakfast vibe, we decided to include a grilled breakfast dish. Shown below are scrumptious grilled French Toast skewers and bacon..both prepared on the grill. Here's the recipe from The Food Network if you would like to try this at home. For optimal richness, Greg recommends soaking the bread in heavy cream instead of buttermilk. Indulgent, but so worth it!
The homeowners also asked Outdoor Dreams to update their existing screened porch and it's gorgeous! This room is such a relaxing retreat and serves many purposes for this family. The furniture was theirs, so I went with their existing color palette and prepared the room for a quiet morning breakfast with friends.
Again, these stunning photos are the work of Becky Rees Creative. She's a master at bringing these spaces to life.
Thanks for visiting!
