Summer Patio Inspo to Win the Backyard
May 06, 2021 | Summer
Colour Republic teamed up with Sam's Club to showcase the best in outdoor patio and backyard flower design.
The team, led by Senior Creative Director Jonathan Stiers to create a little outdoor patio and backyard flower inspiration—all in support of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art. The challenge: #winthebackyard.
Jonathan joined designers Nate Berkus, Becki Owens, and Jennifer Houghton to create popup outdoor escapes from New York to Los Angeles.
Jonathan shares his tips for creating a floral wall for this chic outdoor space:
"We began with the water source, using a combination of water tubes, moss, and small vases with fresh water and created this installation using 100% reusable resources. It is free of all single-use plastics and floral foam, which is harmful to the environment. Once the eco-friendly water sources were in place, we moved onto creating a large grid with chicken wire and floral pillows. This layer of mechanics helped ensure that once the blooms were placed in one of the water sources, they would not shift.
