A View for Vols

Positioning patio furniture in a way that allows the homeowners to take in views of White Oak Mountain helped create the vision for this outdoor deck and screened-in porch. Rich browns and bright pops of orange set the tone for this UT Vols themed area and can be found in everything from the furniture cushions and rug down to small details like placemats and napkins. As UT season ticket holders for the past four decades, this space was created with alumni gatherings in mind. “Choosing colors was a breeze. There was never any question. It was going to be orange,” the homeowner explains. Built last October, the screened-in porch and adjoining deck area feature furniture from the Patio Shop with fun accents like mosaic side tables and a chevron rug that add a variety of textures and a punch of cheer to what is a comfortable, spirited outdoor escape.
