The Second Living Room: Chic Outdoor Spaces

by Brooke Williams

Outdoor living spaces have been popular for decades, but the dressing of outdoor spaces is trending right now. From big to small, traditional to modern, outdoor spaces are beginning to merge with the interiors. Porches are being treated as another room in the house for morning coffee, dining, entertaining, or relaxing. Spaces in the yard are becoming more focal points for entertainment, with kitchens, fire pits, and additional sitting arrangements.

Furniture manufacturers are supporting this trend by supplying attractive yet durable outdoor furniture. Upholstery is covering furniture with slipcovers or cushions and accent pillows. Indoor/Outdoor fabrics have been designed to be comfortable to the touch while also growing to include bold, colorful patterns. Indoor/Outdoor rugs, along with accent furniture, and accessories, adorn the outdoors. Specialty lighting, such as unique pendants, can add an impact to your space. Below you can see various styles’ renditions of outdoor spaces to inspire your next outdoor design project!
