Now this backyard is a place where Erika and Joe can cook, entertain or just hang out. A new deep brown stain on each deck carries out the color of the hardwood floors inside. It also makes the room inside seem larger because the matching colors create the illusion of one large room rather than two separate areas. Lots of new greenery, both potted and planted, breathes life into the space and provides lush texture. The earthy terra-cotta concrete stain makes the transition between the cement and plants more subtle.
