The latest trend in home decor is bringing the comfort of indoors to your backyard, porch, or patio with natural elements, pretty finishes, and warm colors classically seen in interior design. Outdoor living utilizes your outdoor space and makes it as cozy as your living room or family room. Here’s how to incorporate the trend into your outdoor space.
Warm Outdoor Accents
Add pops of color to accent pieces like decorative lighting, outdoor rugs, and furniture in warmer shades of yellow, pink, green, and orange.
Technically you’re already enjoying nature if you’re lounging outside, but this design element is the purposeful inclusion of nature. It uses decks and trellis fences made from natural wood, wood-looking finishes, communal green areas, and living walls.
Instead of focusing on patio furniture, people are using their outdoor space for experiences like outdoor bars, cooking for the family, firepits, yoga studios, meditative spaces, and reading nooks.
Railings really catch your eye, especially when they’re done well. Aluminum railings in black finishes are a popular choice and they’re low-maintenance and classic.
Mixing Indoors With Outdoors
String lights and pendant lights create the illusion of a ceiling, while you can still see the stars. Folding glass doors and windows can make you feel like you’re indoors while you still enjoy being outside.
