Space We Love: The Style Scribe’s Patio Paradise


If there’s one thing our friend Merritt Beck of the fashion and lifestyle blog The Style Scribe knows, it’s how to elevate. Whether it’s fashion, beauty, home decor or travel, her blog provides daily tips and tricks for women who want to live at the intersection of luxury and approachability. When it came to decorating her backyard space in Dallas, Texas, Merritt wanted something classic, light and elegant. Our Cassara seating and dining collection fit the bill. And true to form, she put together an elevated outdoor space like only she can.

“I wanted pieces that would complement the soft colors inside and outside of home and that would look great for years to come. The pieces I chose are timeless and neutral — ones I can guarantee I’ll still love in 10 years time.”

Merritt loves the comfort and ease the Cassara Collection brings, and mixing the serene teak with the Bistro Chairs tied the whole look together. She loves how they lighten up the space and bring a chic French touch (and a pop of color too!). Merritt added the Capri Burnished Lanterns to top things off with texture and a glamorous touch. “They also help play with height in the space, which definitely helps balance it all out,” she says.

What is she most excited to do in her new patio paradise? “I love having friends over for drinks or dinner, so I can’t wait to use this space for entertaining,” she says. “It’s so calming and comfortable. It will be a great spot for getting lost in a good book too!”
