Taking the Inside Outdoors

I could live outside in the summer! Seriously. I could spend my mornings and evenings totally outside. There is nothing better than enjoying pleasant weather while eating your favorite meal or relaxing on comfortable furniture. That is why the outdoor living space is such a cool concept. You are creating a space completely outdoors that have the qualities that you need from the interior. For instance, if you love eating as a family, create an outdoor dining room. I personally love lounging at night so an outdoor living space is perfect for me.

If you really want to take the outdoor living space to the next level, add an outdoor fireplace/pit. You will never want to leave your yard!

If you live near any sort of water, you will of course need to create a sitting area outside. This deck has the capacity to entertain, and allows your guests to relax and watch the water for hours. It also has great lighting details. The lanterns, candles and fire pit give off a summery glow.

This dining space is exactly what a summer's night needs! The pendant lights are an industrial touch, while the table is big enough to host a crowd. It’s clean. It’s modern. It’s awesome.

Whatever you choose to do with your outdoor living space, remember to create a space that’s enjoyable and comfortable. To keep your outdoor spaces feeling clean, use materials that are outdoor friendly and easy to keep clean.
