Fishers, Indiana (Just outside of Indianapolis)
We live in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 3rd floor of our building. I love being outside and I love sitting in the sun. Our space is pretty small, so there wasn't much room to do anything crazy, but I definitely wanted our deck to be a place I wanted to sit. Because we live in Indiana, we typically can only use the space a couple of months of the year, but when the weather allows we use it as often as possible.
My inspiration started with some chairs I saw at Target — I couldn't get my mind off of them. I had to have them. Some of the items I already had, but mostly I bought new items to create my dream space for this outdoor deck. I love marigolds, and that started my color scheme of yellow, which I paired with blue, and just made sure everything fit in with that. The great thing about plants and flowers is that if you pick the right ones, they will always enhance your space. When I sit outside, I feel like I am at a resort on vacation. My perfect spot.
