This space was designed for the 2012 Hampton Designer Showhouse, presented by Traditional Home. The outdoor area started as a dirt yard with a massive hole in the ground behind a large new-construction house. With little to inspire us, we received help from Liebhaber Construction, who generously donated a pergola, and the beautiful outdoor furniture provided by Barlow Tyrie. The design was then created with a fictional family in mind; young, active and happy; similar to the many clients we typically work for. Our goal was to create a space that felt like an outdoor living room and focused on comfort and fun.
