Summer Style: Move the Indoors Out!

by Kim

It’s summertime and just about every home décor retailer and magazine is featuring our growing fascination with outdoor rooms. It’s time to move the great room outside and do it in style! Whether you have a porch, patio, deck or balcony the days of a simple table and chair set are over.  Bring on fabric drenched swinging beds, cabanas, throw pillows and outdoor drapery. Enclose a gazebo or pergola with rich fabric to add drama, color and privacy.  Layer in bright colored ceramic stools and planters and pull it all together with a graphic print outdoor area rug. Don’t forget some soft evening lighting –  Candles, lanterns and even lamps can offer nighttime ambience.

Look for fabrics that are made for the outdoors such as Sunbrella fabrics that are made to endure the sun, heat and wind; easy to clean and less fading than fabrics made for indoor use.  I personally love Dwell Studio’s Modern Bungalow collection offered through Robert Allen fabrics. Bold geometrics and natural motifs are crafted using Sunbrella high performance yarns.

Have you seen any great outdoor designs lately? We’d love to see them! You can share them with us on Pinterest, our Facebook page, or in the comments below!
