Outdoor Decorating Inspiration

Creating a comfortable, charming outdoor space is like adding an extra room to your home. Plus, you can experiment with bold ideas without the commitment. Here’s some inspiration for putting together your own oasis:

Functional, yet stylish. Don’t forget about lighting. The Moroccan inspired pendant lights mean the space can be used to enjoy summer nights. They also accentuate the bohemian feel.

Nature (and the stunning fireplace) take center stage with neutral decor. Multiple conversation areas are ideal for backyard entertaining.

This may not be a home, but the wine country retreat is too incredible to leave out. An outdoor living room and fire pit look fresh with yellow upholstery and pillows. Can you imagine lounging by that pool or sipping a glass of wine while enjoying scenery?

Throw pillows in a mix of colors and patterns instantly perk up tropical outdoor furniture. Love the blue hammocks.

Chandeliers aren’t just for formal, indoor spaces. The vintage lighting looks quirky hanging from a pergola. If wiring is not an option, try battery operated candles.

Potted flowers and shrubs are an inexpensive addition to a patio.

The porch at Ralph Lauren’s ranch in Colorado utilizes a table crafted from salvaged wood and Mexican sabino-wood pieces from the 19th century. The colorful table and throw pillows offset the rustic design.

You don’t need a backyard to take advantage of outdoor living. A rooftop can be transformed into a garden with plants, outdoor furniture and colorful accessories.

Open air dining is elegant and romantic. The French industrial chairs look chic when paired with a large farm table.

Even a tiny balcony can be transformed into a place to relax with seating, throw pillows and a rug. Two wooden crates form a unique bench to enjoy the beautiful view.

      Thanks for reading! I would love that dining space too. I’m a huge fan of bringing indoor design elements outdoors, like the chandeliers, pillows and dining table.
