Whether you’re looking to update a few key areas or planning a full-scale renovation, the teams at Design First Builders are at your service. 

Indoor Oasis:

Biophilic Design:

Bring the outdoors in! This design concept prioritizes nature, incorporating elements like plants, natural textures (think wood and stone) and calming colors (greens, blues) to create a sense of tranquility. Surround yourself with lush greenery, woven furniture and calming water features for a spa – like experience.

Playful Patterns:

Liven up your space with bold and playful patterns. Think tropical prints, geometric shapes and pops of color on throw pillows, rugs or accent walls. These playful elements add a touch of whimsy and summer fun.

Quiet Luxury:

 Indulge in a touch of luxury. Invest in high quality, natural fabrics like linen and cotton for throws and furniture. Opt for muted metallic accents and sleek, minimalist furniture for a touch of understated elegance.

Outdoor Escape:

Indoor – Outdoor Living:

Create a seamless transition between your indoor and outdoor spaces. Use large patio doors, extend furniture arrangements onto balconies or patios, and incorporate similar color palettes and design elements inside and out. This creates a cohesive and expansive feel.

Brighter & Bolder:

Embrace the sunshine! Use saturated colors like turquoise, coral and sunny yellow in your outdoor furniture and decor. These vibrant hues instantly elevate your space and create a cheerful summer vibe.

Raw Materials:

Bring in the natural beauty, think woven rattan chairs, unfinished wooden tables, and natural stone accents. These elements create a connection to nature and add a touch of rustic charm to your outdoor haven.

Bonus Trend: Game on!

Make your outdoor space the ultimate entertainment zone. Invest in a stylish game table for entertaining friends and family. Cornhole, ping pong, or even a classic board game setup adds a fun element and encourages summer gatherings.
