Celine from Aquahaus participated in this past One Room Challenge, and tackled two outdoor outdoor decks on the roof of her Austin home. Here is one of the two, which she calls "Deck A." As you can see, the original space is reminiscent of an army bunker with tons of grey concrete (and even an American flag). After six weeks, it had an entirely new vibe....

Tada! Celine turned that underwhelming grey space into an outdoor oasis. She nailed the relaxed Palm Spring/Marfa feeling she was going for — and it's perfectly at home in Austin. BTW, I want to make out with the boxwood coverings she layered over the concrete walls, which lend texture and an organic element to the deck.
