Project Scope

Best of Two Worlds

My clients call me their organizational guru. I’ve had a lot of practice designing closets that provide a My goal for this project was to take my clients’ New Traditional interior style outdoors while selecting eco-friendly design options wherever possible. When I’m planning an outdoor space, I always think of backyards as a collection of rooms with “green” walls created by your landscaping. 

Do you want a kitchen? A dining room? Do you want a conversation area around a fire pit? Once I have a wish list, I can assemble the backyard of your dreams.

After moving from the city to the suburbs, these clients were looking forward to enjoying their spacious, fenced backyard and covered porch with their young children, extended family and friends. I designed a space that is luxurious AND has eco-friendly elements. Next up: we plan to screen in the porch and add more lighting.

To warm up the cool color palette, I anchored the conversation area with a wicker cocktail table in cozy brown.
