Add screening to your deck when you want to create a more enclosed space. Creating an enclosed space allows you to have a deck that is still outdoors and offers the beauty of the great outdoors but still has that indoors aspect. Bring a twist of modern with a bold ceiling. 

Screen doors have come a long way, so if you want to enclose your deck, adding a screen door could be exactly what you need. Have fun with your screening doors to make an almost invisible shield between your indoor and outdoor area.

Contrasting Furniture

Contrasting furniture is the perfect way to have a deck space that brings in the casual aspect while still having that classic deck aesthetics.

Pastel hues

Pastel hues are beautiful in the outdoor area due to their softness yet punchy feel. Pair with wooden furniture to bring it all together, especially when you want your pastel features to be the standout element every time. Use blankets or cushions to bring color but still have the versatility to swop them whenever you want to. 

When it comes to the colors used in your deck area pastels is the way to go. Pastel hues are super on trend and they are perfect as an additional touch. Keep it in the same color family, but allow the space to feel as authentic to you as possible.
