Our friends don’t really mind, they know that I went through a rough patch the last few years, but it’s time to take the bull by the horns and redecorate the terraza!
This is the space at it’s worst. If we’re going to do before and after shots, I’m taking a page from the professionals and providing you with the worse possible before photos. Here it is from the other side.
Just for fun, another couple of angles.
Part of me thinks that I should make off white neutral slip covers and provide pops of color with throw pillows. That would be the most versatile. However, since this is an outdoor space that gets a lot of sun, I’m drawn to using more color. The talavera pots on the chest behind the love seat, seemed like the perfect place to draw inspiration for colors to use.
Talavera pottery is quintessentially Mexican. I love it, in moderation. Too much talavera is overwhelming. I’ve seen kitchens that look like a showroom for a tile distributor. The talavera sampler look.
I spent hours wandering around the various fabric stores downtown, looking for inspiration. Finally, I found this fabric. I’m thinking of using it on the tub chair, and maybe for a couple of accent pillows on the love seats. What do you think? Now the question is, do I do the love seats in orange, blue, or ivory? Patterned or plain?
