RNDD Designers Prep Your Terrace for Al Fresco Dining

With spring finally making an appearance and summer on the horizon we can now celebrate Al fresco dining. RNDD designers Gray & Walter, Katie Charlotte Design, and Mitchell Channon Design are sharing their favorite trends and products to prep your terrace for Al fresco dining.

Katie Bridgman of Katie Charlotte Design embraces sound when it comes to preparing your terrace for Al fresco dining. The calming sound of water is a great way to escape the noise of the city, giving your dinner guests a sense of serenity. Katie’s go to product is Stone Forest Ribbed Waterwall Fountain from Studio 41.

Mitchell Channon, principal of Mitchell Channon Design indulges in color when it comes to making his client’s terraces summertime ready! “The hot summer design trend is all about making outdoor space feel like expansive rooms. That’s why I love the Wind Outdoor Pendant fixture by Vibia. Its bright and playful glow creates the perfect ambiance for a warm summer evening with friends. Available at Lightology.” Say Mitchell. For dining he also recommends the Melamine Artisan Plate from Material Possessions. “For a festive flair at the outdoor dinner table, I love this Artisan Plate for its colorful Moroccan feel. In melamine, it’s dishwasher safe and totally practical.”

Kenneth Walter of Gray & Walter  has us covered when it comes to choosing practical and stylish outdoor furniture for Al fresco dining. A round table featuring a Lazy Susan is a must. Walter also urges you to consider no maintenance materials. Head to his blog to see 5 gorgeous ways to select outdoor furniture.
