This lovely outdoor seating area is classy, comfortable and well put together. The outdoor lounge furniture, throw pillows, outdoor rug and drapery are from Pottery Barn.
The best outdoor spaces have some type of structure associated with them. Bring everyone together under a canopy, pergola or roof. To keep things cozy and intimate, be sure to add some of the same components that make a great interior living room space, such as pattern and texture.
Outdoor rugs are a great way to add texture and color. There are so many choices available, from natural sisal (as shown above) to Moroccan-inspired tile and trellis designs, simple stripes and classic kilim patterns. Two-toned outdoor rugs keep things fresh and modern. If you like bright pops of color, there’s plenty of options to choose from. There’s also a wide variety of outdoor rugs in neutral shades such as beige, cream and gray.
The palette starts with a neutral base and effortlessly layers on pale shades of browns, blues, and yellows. The result is an elegant and refined space that isn’t too busy or cluttered.
