Red Barrinuevo, the Principal Designer at Redesign4More, adds an outdoor living space to a condo terrace. The result is a stunning terrace with a Manhattan-inspired vibe. So, let’s check out Red Barrinuevo’s expert tips on designing a fabulous outdoor living space.
Tips to Creating a Stunning Terrace with a Manhattan-Inspired Vibe
This condo boasted a huge terrace. So, we created zones to organize and maximize its function. The end result is a functional and beautiful addition to the condo. Further, it offers a Manhattan-inspired, clean and contemporary feel that can be enjoyed by the whole family for years to come.
I love everything that went into this space. Though, my favorite design element is the black metal screen in a chevron pattern. It provides a great backdrop and hides the old brick walls.
Create a Plan for your outdoor living space
Plan! Firstly, think of how you will use the space before you lay it out. Though, if you don’t have the vision, work with a professional designer to avoid costly mistakes.
Pick the right finishes
Secondly, every element in your outdoor design should gravitate towards the design direction you want to achieve. For instance, stone colour, landscape, softscape, and planters. Moreover, everything has to work together aesthetically – then, it will feel right. So, decide on a colour palette and the overall feel you want to achieve, and then choose the design elements accordingly.
