2018-2019 Designer of the Year: Outdoor Spaces

Winner: Kara Karpenske, Karmarron Designs, Minnesota

By completely removing all of the existing exterior pool stone and adding a striking new modern pattern to the furnishings, this outdoor space is completely transformed both functionally and aesthetically. This modern palette of black and white is not only classic, but stunning.

The renovations for the flooring proved to be the most challenging part of the process with the thick cement underlay that needed to be removed. However with keen oversight and by partnering with excellent craftsman this was achievable. Redesigning the surrounding landscaping to enhance the lakefront view was successfully delivered with a design to maximize the lakefront view by removing the boxwood hedge and installed low ground cover.
