Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: Privacy! We have created the space for total privacy from prying eyes. When we want an all-over tan, we can now get one without any worries! The second thing we love is the mosaic tile wall that covered up a whole lot of sins left from the previous owner.
Biggest Design Challenge With This Space: The Airstream has been a challenge. We had no idea how hard it was going to be to polish it up! As you can see, it is a work in progress (that will have to wait until it cools down in the fall to be completed).
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: Get creative... you don't have to let your space be limited by store bought items/furniture. We like to recycle and upcycle whenever possible. Alleys, dumpsters and construction sites are great places to get furniture and accessories for your outdoor space.
Thanks, Kris, and good luck!
