From Drab to Fab: A Pool Deck Transformation

Transforming an old pool deck into a stunning oasis can seem daunting, but with a bit of creativity and inspiration, anything is possible. Brisbane stylist Liz Amaya did just that, creating a tropical paradise inspired by the idyllic island of Bora Bora.

Liz shared her tips for would-be renovators and said it's all about researching and creating a budget. She also had a mood board that was referred to often for inspiration.

Liz's first step in the transformation was to choose white paint for the deck, which provided a fresh and bright base for her coastal-inspired design. The white deck perfectly complements the crystal-clear blue waters of the pool, creating an oasis that's both tranquil and inviting.

Liz and her family then had fun sourcing and styling the furniture and plants to complete the look. The coastal-inspired design features plenty of natural materials, including wood and jute, all of which work together to create a relaxed and casual vibe. The addition of potted plants brings the tropical theme to life, making the space feel like a true oasis.

Liz loved the shape of the Lucy pots; we think they look very much at home in her gorgeous new space.

This proves that a tired old pool deck can be transformed into a stunning outdoor space with minimal effort. With the right design elements and a clear vision, you can create a beautiful and functional outdoor retreat. Whether you're inspired by Bora Bora or another tropical paradise, let your imagination run wild and see where it takes you. Check out Liz's Instagram here.
