Design Collaboration Challenge: Teal & Orange

Jane picked out the inspiration palette for this month’s design collaboration – a vibrant combo of teal and orange. Every month, we take the same inspiration photo and each put together a mood board. It’s so fun seeing everyone’s different take on it. This month, apparently there was something in the air, because three of us all decided to create either a patio mood board or an outdoor deck!

My Mood Board: An Urban Patio

I immediately thought Autumn, but not wanting to wish the summer away, I went for a warm-weather space instead – a sheltered urban patio, with quite a few indoor elements to make it comfy and cosy. I am in love with that rattan hanging chair!

A Coastal Outdoor Space Mood Board

Jane says:

The inspiration photo I chose has warm colors that I love in teal, orange, brown and cream – and I immediately thought these colors would be fun on a hip outdoor patio or deck. This overall design makes me think of Summer in Southern California! It’s chic, comfortable and just the perfect place to relax on cool and breezy Summer evenings with family and friends.

I had so much fun doing a bath refresh with my friend Kassi! For about $300 you can do it too! Tutorials on the plank wall, chunky shelves, and of course, all the sources, are on my blog. Come read all about it.

This month I had a bit of fun dreaming up a relaxing patio. Our backyard needs a lot of TLC before we’ll be ready to decorate out there, but a girl can dream right? Stop by to see my sources!
