outdoor living… 5 elements to create your perfect outdoor space
If you’re anything like me, with summer upon us I want to be living outdoors. So why not make the most of the glorious long daylight hours and balmy evenings by creating an outdoor living space. Even if you have a small patio or terrace, there is still so much you can do.
5 elements to create your perfect outdoor room
1. comfortable seating
2. theme in style and/or colour
3. lighting to create ambiance
4. space (balance with proportions leaving plenty of room to move around)
5. great company, great food and let the conversation flow …
I hope these images inspire you to create an outdoor room just perfect for you!
Enjoying outdoor living, making every day feel like you’re on holidays and creating a sense of occasion out of every meal.
All images from House to Home.
Watching the Chelsea Flower Show coverage on TV this year, it seems that there’s a continuing trend for using the garden as additional living space, rather than something pretty to look at out of the window.
I think the example you showed with all the red and white prints is my favourite.
It’s creating a room without having to build. The image with red and white prints is lovely. I think my favourite is where the indoor furniture is simply dragged out onto the patio, instantly creating a room to the sky!
Using indoor furniture in an outdoor settings is interesting but I guess it’s just troublesome to bring them out everytime 🙂
I agree with you that it ends up being a bit of a hassle, but one well worth it to be outdoors in nature don’t you think 😉
