Your cottage deck is a high traffic area where you host dinners, cocktail parties and great get-togethers. Think of your deck as an extension of your interior but with a great view. The ideal deck has comfortable furniture, outdoor lighting, beautiful planters, enough seating for everyone, and pops of colour in your pillows, throws and patio wear. Your deck will be the place you want to spend all of your time.

Muskoka chairs are a relaxing way to take in the beautiful view. To tie the chairs into your colour scheme try an ombre paint technique. It’s easy, fast and offers a great design statement. These chairs were painted using the colours ‘Unforgettable’ and ‘Lime Sorbet’.

A planter bench is the perfect way to add additional seating to your patio while also incorporating your favourite plants or flowers. It’s a great place to sit back, relax and enjoy the summer weather.

When choosing products for your patio you want them to be designed for the outdoors. Fabrics should be UV protected and waterproof, but if they’re not you can protect them with products such as NeverWet Fabric Protector, and UV and Water Fabric Protector.

Without doing much you can turn a plain boring patio into an extraordinary new space for entertaining. When decorating outdoors have a plan or a goal in mind and be sure to always think in colour.
