Located at the Preserve in Hoover, the 2014 Birmingham Home and Garden Inspiration House is a two-story painted brick home featuring a porch and second story balcony. In keeping with the traditional feel of the community, the home exhibited traditional Southern style, but with modern amenities.
The backyard of the home boasted a beautiful outdoor living space complete with dining area, fireplace, grill and pool overlooking the valley below. This is where Summer Classics came in!
Summer Classics Outdoor Design Specialist, James Allen Westbrook, said, “When I first went into the Birmingham Inspiration Home I fell in love with its beautiful outdoor space. I knew that the pairing of the home with beautifully crafted Summer Classics furniture would look spectacular. “ And he couldn’t have been more correct!
This year, the home featured the styles and designs from some of Birmingham’s top retailers and manufacturers including Summer Classics. Westbrook was responsible for designing the home’s gorgeous outdoor spaces including the seating around the expansive pool, the outdoor dining area and the upstairs balcony.
Westbrook took great care in selecting the perfect pieces for each space. “After several trips to measure and take in the space I came up with the perfect match,” Westbrook said. “In front of the fireplace, I used our Rustic deep-seating sectional made of our patented N-dura resin wicker and luxurious Sunbrella outdoor fabrics.”
“Surrounding the pool deck area I used very clean-lined stackable Skye chaise lounges as well as a Euro chat group from our Charleston collection. With a few potted plants, some outdoor accessories and lamps the space was complete,” Westbrook said.
“A beautiful, yet functional outdoor living space for life’s best outdoor moments. It was a great honor to be a part of the Inspiration Home.” Congratulations to a job well done Westbrook, and congratulations to the entire Summer Classics team. The outdoor spaces certainly were inspiring!
