As spring approaches in St. Louis, we already have plans to spend as much time as we can outside in the warm sun. The Terra Nova team can’t wait for the snow to melt and the temperatures to rise so our clients can enjoy their exciting outdoor spaces. Our designers are proud of these completed outdoor projects, and we want to share some inspiration for your own outdoor oasis this spring.
Firing up the grill on a nice evening is an ideal spring and summer activity, so why not make the space around your grill more inviting? You can make your family’s cookouts even better with a new outdoor living space. We love working with our clients to figure out exactly how they like to live and entertain outdoors. Whether you’re looking for a nice veranda with a full entertainment system where you can gather to watch the game, a fire pit setup where the kids can make s’mores, or a luxurious outdoor dining area to show off your new grill, an outdoor living space is the perfect extension to your home this spring.
For something you can enjoy year-round, consider adding a sunroom to your home. Even in the cold months, you can enjoy a day when the sun’s out. When it’s warm you can open the windows or your screen doors and enjoy the summer as you lounge with a good book or good company.
Adding a dining area to your sunroom also offers a great space for guests to dine in the summer warmth while still keeping food safely indoors by including a screen to keep away insects. The possibilities for a sunroom are endless: it can serve as a lively home office, a greenhouse for your plant collection, a bright play area for children, a relaxing space for you to hang out in -- or all of the above!
Building a pool or spa is the ultimate backyard goal for so many of us. We love working with our clients to incorporate their dream pool and/or spa into the vision of their outdoor living space. Taking the plunge to build a pool can transform your home into your own vacation paradise right in your own backyard! A pool can be the perfect place to relax in the hot sun, entertain kids, host great summer parties, or get in your daily exercise. Add a jacuzzi to the mix and enjoy the water year-round.
Whether it's a project large or small, thinking of the outdoors as an extension of your house can help transform it to an enjoyable space for the whole family. Our design team is ready to give your yard a fresh look as we turn the corner into spring!
