Live beautifully with Vanessa Deleon Glamilistic “Summer Outdoor Designs.” Making outdoor design look like your ideal space begins with the right combination of material, form, and function.
I simply adore outdoor wicker patio daybeds for a mod approach to comfort! If you’re tired of the old white plastic chairs and tables from grandma’s backyard and the sun umbrella unsteadily tilted in the insert of the picnic table, which during high-winds would catapult-like a rocket in mid-air taking a dive into the neighbor’s pool, you can bet this was the outdoor furniture of the past.
Here are some of my suggestions for you to create your outdoor staycation! If you need my assistance just reach out to me.
In an ERA of Modernism Ernst Hemingway, and old Cuban rattan or Rotan material primary used in wicker furniture was also furniture of the past. Still, there is no need to get rid of the classic outdoor originals if you’re lucky enough to find old wicker made of Oriental Seagrass or Bamboo.
Old pieces can make an eclectic statement in any outdoor scheme or setting. The colors of these old pieces are lighter but can be mixed in with a stunning contemporary design making a bold connection of the past meets the future in outdoor furniture. Many of the Rattan-looking furniture today are weather-repellant polyethylene strands that are handwoven over premium quality aluminum or steel frames. They are highly resistant to fading, cracking, and mildew, holding up to unexpected elements.
Today outdoor furniture is made with the indoor lifestyle in mind. An extensive range of premium quality and highly weather-resistant fabrics that appeal both indoors and out are available (high-quality bench cushions, next chair cushions, and pillows).
There are appliances that you can incorporate into the outdoor design, such as kitchen appliances; fantastic grills, refrigerators, and outdoor sinks to wine and beer dispensers. We have come a long way in outdoor design and technology.
Within the last forty years, improvements have been made incorporating proper wirings, such as GFCI, or Ground Fault Circuit Interrupter installed for safety purposes, especially when using electrical components outdoors.
Super easy DIY fun with the family by revamping the old picnic table, using a fun pop of color you can make any picnic table look new again. Just choose from a wide variety of options in the Sherwin-Williams palette.
