TEAK wood, slim lines and a unique color
palette are on point in this stylish outdoor
space in Wilmington’s Forest Hills. Liz Carroll
Interiors was given the task of creating an
outdoor area that would accommodate many guests
in a chic way.
“The homeowners have three children and are
incredible hosts, so we have multiple seating areas
both covered and uncovered, a dining area, a fire-place
and pizza oven. If you want to put a game up on
the wall you can do that. There’s a lot of function,”
The outdoor furniture is a mix of lounge and
dining. Teak and woven-rope detail on couches pair
well with accent chairs of powder cast aluminum.
Pink is making a splash in design for 2022 and makes
an elegant statement in this outdoor arrangement.
“We didn’t want to do the expected coastal blues.
We used a coral pink, a coral red and dusty pink.
These colors are happy and fresh,” says Carroll.
The patio extends off the living room in an effort-less
transition into outdoor living.
Located in Forest Hills, this outdoor space becomes an extension of the home. It’s chic yet functional
design by Liz Carroll Interiors uses teak wood, woven-rope and coral accents. It has an outdoor
fireplace, pizza oven and plenty of seating for entertaining. Outdoor entertainment areas, especially
those featuring outdoor kitchens, can add significant value to a home.
