Create a luxe outdoor space perfect for curling up with a good book, relaxing, watch the stars, family time or a little al fresco dining.
Now more than ever, having an outdoor space (whether it’s a back deck, roof top, patio or balcony) is a hot commodity. With vacation plans and excursions cancelled due to Covid, I decided to make the most of our outdoor space and escape the monotony of staying home every day, by creating an outdoor oasis in my own backyard. What better time than now to create a retreat space at home! With a little ingenuity and some help from Frog Tape, the space turned out perfectly! The focal point and foundation of the fabulously dreamy getaway space is the turf rug I customized using Frog Tape.
Bringing the Indoors Out
Designers often talk about bringing the “outdoors in,” meaning incorporating outdoor elements in your home’s design and décor. With this project, I did the reverse by bringing some of the comfort and drama of design elements traditionally used indoors outside to the deck. Incorporating texture and pattern with the custom turf rug, cushioned seating with layered comfy pillows, mixed metals, elegant drapery, contrasting black and white patterns with vibrant yellow accents created an outdoor room that’s inviting while also evoking a sense of luxury, glamour and a bit of edge… the perfect escape without leaving home. I’m really excited the dramatic transformation of the space and can’t wait to start using it!
CUSTOM TURF RUG TUTORIAL:
*COOL FACTOR… The adhesion of the Frog Tape is absolutely AMAZING. With all the texture of the turf, I still was able to achieve straight lines and no paint seeped through! Stellar product performance!
FrogTape® is the only painter's tape treated with PaintBlock Technology. PaintBlock is a super-absorbent polymer which reacts with latex paint and instantly gels to form a micro-barrier that seals the edges of the tape, preventing paint bleed.
