Is Your Outdoor Space Ready for Summer?

Last year saw a lot of businesses scrambling to reimagine their services. One trend we hope will stick around for a while is the rise of outdoor dining. Here in California, from Marin to Oakland to San Francisco to Los Angeles, outdoor dining is certainly a privilege we get to enjoy year-round. And so, it has us thinking about our own outdoor spaces – we’ve all been spending more time in our homes this past year, but what about our patios, decks, and lawns? Is your outdoor space ready for summer (just two months away), or are you still staring at an empty cement pad with a lonely grill in the corner?

Well, if your answer is the latter, here’s your reminder to order your outdoor furniture now if you want a functional, comfortable space by June.

Take a look at some of the outdoor spaces we’ve designed for a little bit of inspiration, and contact us for help putting together an outdoor space your whole family can enjoy year-round.

Napa Retreat

Create your own wine-tasting experience at home by embracing the California-casual style. Here we used beautiful light sandstone to clad an outdoor fireplace, and we brought in oversized lanterns and a breezy blue and taupe color scheme to create a serene space to watch the sunset against the vineyard.

Nantucket Paradise

Our clients brought the California-cool aesthetic all the way to Nantucket with cozy fireplace seating on an oversized deck overlooking the billowing grasslands of this Northeast island. We brought in natural tans and rust oranges to smoothly coordinate with the surrounding landscape.

San Francisco Backyard Haven

Our San Francisco Style project extended to the outdoors where our clients wanted easy indoor/outdoor living for their young family. On those foggy, brisk summer days that San Francisco is known for, they can still enjoy the outdoors with their heated patio furniture from Galanter and Jones while enjoying the view into their comfortably glam home.

Oakland Hills Rooftop Bar

A balcony set atop the garage of this Oakland Hills home became the perfect spot to enjoy an evening happy hour. We mixed stylish mid-century pieces, pops of bright color, and a functional outdoor bar to create the perfect pandemic night in.
