Patio Reading Area

Soft grey-brown paint warms up a slatted wall.

Architect Gillian Green designed an ingenious deck with removable panels that maximizes leisure space but allows access to the stairs below leading to the basement. This existing wall was painted the same shade as the brick to the right for a cohesive look. A comfy butterfly chair surrounded by greenery offers the perfect perch to while away a summer afternoon.
