Shay Mitchell knows a thing or two about home decor. But when it came time to transform her empty outdoor space into a modern-meets-Moroccan oasis, the Pretty Little Liars star decided to join forces with AllModern designer Donna Garlough. With four, yes four, separate yard areas, Mitchell had a LOT of space to decorate to turn her drab yard into the ultimate entertaining zone. Scroll down for a few glimpses of the Insta-worthy setup, then head over to AllModern to see the full transformation.
To start, Garlough based her design on what Mitchell planned to use the space for. “Mainly, she wanted a long table with an organic yet modern feel, and to be able to create an exotic, Moroccan vibe with accents,” the designer said. “She loves to entertain, so it was important for her to be able to create a relaxing vibe for her guests in her outdoor area.”
According to Garlough, her #1 tip for making an outdoor space feel comfy and stylish is to not forget the outdoor textiles like pillows and throws. “They add character and color, and make a patio or deck feel so much more inviting,” she explains. Since Mitchell wanted a Moroccan-meets-Mediterranean vibe, they brought in lots of ornate lanterns, patterned throw pillows, and rustic furniture to tie the look together.
Most of Mitchell’s home decor is inspired by her travels and the decor pieces she loves bringing back from her adventures. Her favorite part about the backyard makeover? “The teardrop chairs around the fire pit. It’s such a great little nook now for reading or hanging out around the fire,” says Mitchell.
