Our latest terrace transformation, located in Hoboken, features a fabulous flooring solution. To cover the concrete pavers commonly found in new construction, we added synthetic lawn which provides a lush green feel. Since three rooms of the apartment have windows and doors facing the space, the lawn added a punch of color that the space needed. As filtered sunlight graces the terrace throughout the day, the lawn has a luminous and calming feel.
Custom planters are now home to Spiraea shrubs and some of my favorite shade-loving perennials. Oakleaf Hydrangeas add texture to this small space. Since our palette is very neutral, the owners have a blank slate to play with when they add accessories to the garden. Any bright pop of color will find a home in this space because it won’t ‘fight’ with anything else. The colors create a very classic and elegant feel. The furniture has a modern edge and provides flexibility for entertaining. Instead of one large dining table, we opted for two smaller cafe tables which can easily be reconfigured for terrace cocktails or summer barbeques.
