How to Style Your Back Deck

There’s a lot you can do to take your deck to the next level, whether you’re using it for entertaining or just relaxing outdoors. From selecting the right colors to grounding your space to adding balance and dimension, there’s a lot more that goes into overall design than the furniture you select.

We turned to interior designers Alexis and Danielle at Simplicity Home Staging and Design for some expert insights into achieving the much sought-after look of a professionally styled deck.

Color Coordinate

Start with a neutral color palette as your base, then add seasonal pops of color or a specific event you might be hosting.

Ground Your Space

Style your deck literally from the ground up, starting with an exterior rug that you can coordinate around.

The Power of Three

Layer Your Space

Mixing and matching different colors, patterns and textures adds beautiful depth and dimension to your deck space.
