Deluxe Designs of Arizona
Oro Valley, Ariz.
Deluxe Designs of Arizona transformed this dull, existing courtyard into the lively outdoor living area the clients were yearning for. They integrated artificial turf between the pavers to add color and pattern and faux living walls to offer year-round color without maintenance. The contrast of the faux wood cladding warmed up the industrial gray tones and brought attention to architectural features, like the high windows, that went previously unnoticed. To help break up the artificial finishes, they introduced three organically textured pots with low-water cacti. Lastly, they accessorized with string lighting, throw pillows, blankets, tables and additional faux foliage to complete the indoor/outdoor look.

Take one global pandemic, 18 months of virtual schooling, toss in some elementary-school aged kids and a cat, all in a tight family room area, and you’ve got all the ingredients for the perfect point of pain: The clients needed more space for everyone. The solution? Add a three-season screened porch that is spacious and inviting, along with a fun treehouse.
