    • Outdoor Living Defined

      Outdoor decor no longer consists of rickety lawn furniture in mismatched patterns. People are transforming their spaces into outdoor living rooms. The closer your outdoor space is to an indoor room with a similar use, the more likely you are to use it. From funky to classic, today's all-weather furniture is all about style.

    • Colorful Textures

      Mixing patterns on outdoor cushions is easy when you stick with a simple color scheme and rely on a neutral background for large furnishings.

    • Sturdy Accessories

      One of the quickest ways to bring a homey feel outdoors is to include all-weather lamps like this chic pineapple lamp beside seating.

    • Durable Rugs

      Rugs suitable for outdoors help to define intimate spaces.

    • Kitchen Strategies

      This open-air kitchen has it all-- freestanding bar, angled counters, ample work surfaces, and good proximity to outdoor dining furniture.

    • Touch of Ambience

      Candles are an inexpensive way to continue a color scheme. Varying shapes and heights adds visual interest.

    • Beautiful Storage

      A baker's rack filled with collectibles dresses up a blank wall. Grouping related objects creates a mini theme.

    • Wall Art

      Don't neglect outdoor walls. A candle sculpture like this becomes artwork against the brick.

    • Patio Lights

      Outdoor lights help keep decks and patios illuminated during evening gatherings.
