A seamless transition will extend your indoor environment.

Creating an outdoor living area that feels like an extension of your indoor space makes for a seamless and unified transition. It’s a synthesis of style that blends outdoor and indoor living.

If you focus on your outdoor living space as much as your indoor design style, you’ll gain a welcoming look that makes it easy to glide effortlessly from indoors to outdoors and back. You’ll find that you use your outdoor space more, whether it’s a deck, terrace, garden or large backyard.

So many materials work well both for indoors and out, including teak, stainless steel, rattan, wicker, easy-care fabrics, glass and more.  Focus on beauty, as well as function, for your outdoor living elements, so they don’t look like an afterthought, but rather a design style that’s coordinated with your interior decorating plan.

Some design ideas to link your adjacent indoor and outdoor spaces include:

  • Use similar colors, materials and styles inside and out.

  • Introduce a few soft surfaces outdoors, such as rugs, throw pillows and soft upholstery.

  • Hang soft, translucent window fashions that make the outdoors look closer.

  • Add matching accent pieces indoors and out, including table linens, lanterns, candles and flower arrangements.

  • Plan adequate sun covering outdoors, using umbrellas, awnings or a built shading structure, so you’re willing to keep the windows and window treatments open without sun damage to furniture and floors.

  • Use ceramic stools, durable tables and easy-clean dining chairs that you can move in and out as the need arises.

Bring your outdoor and indoor living spaces together for summer relaxation with family and friends.
