Stylish Outdoor Living

Stylish Outdoor Living

We are so accustomed to bringing the outdoors in to our homes, but the trend continues in outdoor living to bring the indoors outside! Fabric, furniture and lighting options for outdoor living are more plentiful than ever! Almost anything you would put inside your home has been made into a version for outdoors as well. Gone are the days of wicker sets and iron patio furniture as your only choice for your porch. Designers and manufacturers have created beautiful sectional sofas, curtains, drapery rods, lamps, and durable rugs that are made to sit out in the elements.

Outdoor fabrics continue to evolve as well. Soft linens and chenilles have taken the place of a basic patio stripe sunbrella fabric. To finish off a pillow or cushions, there are great looking outdoor tapes and trims. The possibilities are endless!

When arranging an outdoor seating area, mix and match different pieces instead of choosing one whole patio set. Use a fully upholstered sofa with a pair of rattan chairs and garden stools, instead of a coffee table or side tables. Don’t be afraid to mix and match, treat it as a room in your home! Bright colors still remain popular to treat the outdoors, but outdoor fabrics come in all shades. Do not be afraid of white sunbrella fabric! You can bleach it if need be!

And finally, a place for entertaining and relaxing is still where the outdoor rooms are trending. Add a fire pit or a great outdoor kitchen, whatever suits your lifestyle. Al fresco dining is always in style. Bring your finest china outside and set your table as you would in your formal dining room. Don’t be afraid to live outside and enjoy this beautiful place we live!
