Looking for some fresh colour inspiration for your patio or deck?
Both my patio and my sister’s patio makeover are featured in the Spring edition of Canadian Home Trends Magazine! So, I thought it would be fun to revisit them on the blog.
Here’s a look at the photos and some of the advice I shared for decorating your patio.
You can see the full article in the digital edition here.
So the last area rugs I had related to my taupe siding but they looked dirty with my freshly painted patio (I kept it orange from the last homeowner so it wouldn’t show when it scratched, plus it’s the colour of cedar).
Anyway they were dirty and needed to be replaced, since I already had two fixed colours on the deck (with the siding and the deck colour), I chose black and white striped rugs since brown and white stripes were no where to be found and black and white in this case is close enough (below).
Remember what the sales rep said 9 years ago when I was looking for a black fixture for my entry?
Wayfair is having their biggest sale of the year right now, my rugs are on sale here.

Are you working on your patio this season? We still can’t go anywhere in Canada so my patio furniture was up the first week of April this year!
My eDesign packages are still sold out (my eDesign Director has a daughter in critical condition in the hospital) but if you are working on an exterior, you can learn how to choose your own colours in my Exterior Colour Selection Masterclass here.
PS. Those of you who are eligible (because you bought a set before February 2021) to buy the set of 20 new colour boards I’ve recently added to the VIP Collection, get your link here. Please note they will only be available for a limited time and the first order sold out immediately. The next order will be shipped AT THE END OF MAY.
Otherwise if you don’t have any previous boards from the VIP Collection you can buy the entire set with the new colours here.
My large colour samples are well-priced (you won’t be able to make them yourself for less) and only go on sale once a year on Black Friday.
