February 2021: Staff Picks
Designing the perfect outdoor living area is tricky. What furniture works? Neutrals or bolds? How should you light it? Do you want a full bells-and-whistles kitchen or a simple grill? At Creative Living, we love to dream up stunning, functional outdoor spaces that reflect your style, and we take pride in working with you to create, tailor, and execute a vision. By way of inspiration, we asked our staff to point out their most coveted items in the store.
The Hot List:
Custom Art Panels
“Whether it’s for a pop of color, to block the wind, or to hide from the neighbors, our custom outdoor art panels add just the right pizazz to your space. They look good all year long and add a unique touch to your yard. Custom-made in a variety of styles and finishes, these panels can help bring your style to life!”
Les Jardins Solar Lighting
“The table is set for a romantic dinner for two in the garden, and the candles blow out. This won’t happen when you use this solar lantern to provide the desired amount of light, from bright to subdued.”
—Kathleen, Design & Sales
“The bold shape, sexy silhouette and eye-popping colors of the Maui Chair (as well as its corresponding ottoman) help make an enormous statement in your outdoor area. Whether used singly as a reading getaway or used with other Maui Chairs around a pool or fire pit, the visual appeal is only outmatched by its ergonomic design and comfort.”
—Sandy, Design & Sales
Alfresco Grills & Appliances
“I love the versatility and options available in this line of appliances. You can customize your space to suit your cooking needs without sacrificing style! The sleek lines and stainless steel finish complement any color outdoor kitchen and hold up well in the elements.”
—Ashley, Outdoor Kitchen Designs
