 Recently we collaborated with one of the Sarasota Collection’s regular designers…

…to create an outdoor gathering space at his home on Siesta Key.

It’s always fun to work on a more intimate level with our designers because we are able to truly see how their personal tastes might differ or even influence those of their clients.

Together we chose a bright, fresh color palette for this outdoor room inspired by a variety of elements, including the home’s setting – since the house is situated on a beautiful canal framed by beautiful trees.  Turquoise complements the vivid blue water and the yellow adds a sunny pop, but both colors are accented by the lush greenery of the surrounding trees.  Also, we loved that the homeowner wished to integrate their fabulous garden stool collection.
Garden stools are such a fun and functional way to accent any outdoor room.  Typically in bold, cheery colors, garden stools are also the perfect height to serve in the place of a side table. These can be easily moved to accommodate large or small groups, and make outdoor entertaining a breeze. You can easily rest a glass of wine or small snack on the “tabletop,” without the bulkiness of an actual table.

The furniture selected is by Kannoa, a company based in Miami, Florida.  According to the company, they specialize in outdoor furniture inspired by four pillars: design, functionality, durability, and harmony. Kannoa’s collections are amazing – elegant, but comfortable, and extremely well designed.
