Decorating isn’t limited to the four walls of your home. A successfully designed outdoor space can act as a brand new room, increasing your square footage and creating a place to enjoy the great outdoors. Thanks to recent design improvements, we now have entire lines of furniture and fabrics that are both weather resistant and stylish. We’re always blown away by all of the new outdoor fabrics that are being produced (more on the best outdoor fabrics next week!) Porches and patios now look more like cozy living rooms and are the perfect place to host an al fresco dinner or enjoy cocktails with friends.
Below, left and right: Sometimes it’s nice to mix it up a little bit. You don’t have to buy the matching set of sofa, lounge chairs, coffee table, and dining table. It’s much more charming (and interesting) to choose pieces that compliment each other but aren’t necessarily all from the same place. We love this cheerful set up, below. Doesn’t the red of the upholstery pop beautifully against the green?
Who’s ready for an outdoor party?!
