It's officially patio season and I couldn't be happier. It's so so nice to be outside with the kiddos basking in this glorious sunshine - especially after being cooped up for so long in quarantine. Since most of your are in the process of setting up your own patio, I thought this would be the perfect time to share an outdoor cabana design I completed last summer and hopefully give you a little inspiration for your own outdoor space. I'm going to take you through the whole process below from the before, to the design plan, installation and then the end result. Enjoy!


Lucky for me, this is the exact point where I was brought onto this project. A complete blank slate for me to play with, yes! Nothing had been selected at this point except for the wood accent wall and ceiling. I was left to my own devises to come up with a fun, modern, and functional design plan.


This was exactly what I proposed to my clients and they were immediately on-board, which rarely ever happens. Normally, there is a bit of tweaking and back and forth until we finalize a design but, luckily I've worked with this couple before and we are at a point where they 100% trust my vision. Big shout out to Kathleen and Anthony, you guys really are the best!

So, a bit about the design - I kept a fairly neutral colour palette but created a lot of interest with this bold black and white rug. We added a little texture with the mohair throws (meant to add softness to each of the rattan chairs) and some textural outdoor cushions, adding a touch of green for a splash of colour. I love how the wood elements really warm things up, balancing out the concrete walls and overall modern design. Almost all of the furniture is from Article.com, if you are in the market for new patio furniture, make sure to check out their stylish outdoor selection, very affordable. When I was selecting the light fixture I wanted something really unique that would look cool but also give off the ambiance of outdoor string lights. I think I achieved that here, I've experienced this cabana at night time and it really gives off that modern soho, boho vibe. Mission accomplished!
