Hanover Avenue Designs an All Year Outdoor Room

A jaw-dropping terrace, we know! But it's sooo easy to recreate this look using these things even if you only have a small deck!

Who says an outdoor room has to only be for spring and summer?! There are so many climates where outdoor spaces are fab for all seasons, but even in regions with “true four seasons”, an outdoor space can work for at least nine months of the year, AKA a year-round outdoor room. Here’s how!

We teamed up with Williams & Sherrill to create an outdoor room that would not only stand the test of time (and the “wear of the elements”!) but would also be as stylish as any room in your house. So often outdoor furniture is sold in a set and we say, “Forget that!” An outdoor room should look as if it came together effortlessly – as if the pieces naturally evolved over time. We can’t stand “paint by number” interior design, so we brought different profiles and pieces together while uniting them with white. We approached this room almost exactly as we would an interior space.

Like walls indoors, we carefully considered the color and finish of the brick as well as the trim color – after all, we “made this house from scratch” so we could really have fun with it! We love the effect of white washed brick so here’s the skinny on doing that like the true experts. We painted the trim Farrow and Ball’s “Studio Green” No.93. Flawless!

Just move the arrow to watch the terrace go from day to night! Oooohweee, are we ever over the moon for this outdoor room!

I sat down with Jamie Coffey, co-owner of Williams and Sherrill/lead buyer for the store/brilliant designer/hilarious human/visionary businessman as we chat about all the hidden secrets behind designing this room together. Oh, if only every day could be as fun as one spent with Jamie!
