The days are long and bright and now, more than ever we went to spend as much time as we can enjoying the great outdoors! Whether you have a small patio or large deck, dock, gazebo or garden extending your outdoor living area to feel like an extension of your home is a good idea.
We’ve come up with a few ideas to get you started on creating your dream outdoor space.
Small Space Bistro Set
If you are furnishing a smaller outdoor space – such as a balcony, garden, small patio or terrace –a bistro inspired chat set is a great space saving idea. Consider a table that can be used indoors and outdoors to get more use from the piece. Handwoven resin wicker over rust-proof aluminum merges beauty and brawn. Round table with tempered glass top is pretty and practical. Rest assured, the comfy seat cushions and colorful support pillows are wrapped in low-maintenance Nuvella® fabric, made for easy-breezy outdoor living $499.
This patio season, we’re seeing flexible outdoor spaces that function as an extension of your indoor living space. Achieve a cozy, outdoor living room feeling with a sectional sofa, in a neutral colour palette and opt for cushions in vibrant colours to brighten up your space. Sectional sofas are available in a variety of sizes and configurations and allow for a cozy feeling when you add an outdoor rug, plants and side tables.
Area Rugs & Accessories
A great way to create that indoor feeling for your outdoor space is with an outdoor area rug. Experiment with bold patterns and colours, or go monochromatic and add visual interest and depth through the use of different textures and materials.
Accessorize your space and make it your own, with unique pieces such as, lanterns, trays, throws and cushions. Create comfortable shady spaces with planters. Try including vegetables, herbs or your favourite summer blossoms to create an even more refreshing and calming atmosphere.
