Summer Retreat: Outdoor Spaces by RAC

Our infatuation with outdoor decor and spaces has been growing lately... Especially if the space invites fun, bright colors mixed with natural elements.

We incorporated these oversized pebbles from EIS Studio into a recent project. They offer extra seating and look really cool too!

As Shanna Shryne Design sits a block away from the gorgeous California ocean, it's easy to be influenced by beach styles and colors.  However, whether you are seaside or mountain side, these interior design trends can be incorporated into any home.

The primary method to creating a beach inspired look is starting with the color palette.  Sandy neutrals and aqua blues are the obvious colors, but at Shanna Shryne Design we love to boost these hues with indigo, turquoise, yellow bronze.  Especially with a neutral palette, it’s eye-catching to incorporate a color pop!
