Wow! I want to lounge on this deck! In just 5 days she changed the look from ordinary to amazing. A lot was done with fabric and paint, some of the more affordable ways to make a big change in a space.
The outdoor fabrics are not cheap, but you can make simple pillows from regular fabrics for that pop of color & just bring them indoors when you’re not outside. You could make the pillow covers easy to remove to put different colored pillow covers on at different seasons–like orange for fall, etc. The covers could be stored flat & would take up little space in a drawer.
The table runner is another inexpensive, easy sewing project that adds a lot of style. Just bring it in when not using it. It stores in very little space in your linen closet. You can even make it from several different fabrics if you want more of an Anthropologie look.
