Today’s modern interior design and outdoor furniture can blur the lines between indoor and outdoor living spaces. With California’s year-round pleasant weather and beautiful views, creating an indoor-outdoor living space is not only on trend but also functional.
With new options in outdoor furniture, you can transfer all the comforts of your indoor sofa to your outdoor living space. Bring the same attractive upholstered look of a Chesterfield-style sofa outside with innovative, durable marine-grade vinyl from my Christopher Kennedy outdoor furniture collection.
Indulge in the bright pops of color and rich patterns you normally reserve for your interiors in your outdoor fabrics, too. Outdoor fabrics from F. Schumacher offer the looks of linen, hand-printed fabrics, exotic woven prints, and other richly textured upholstery but in solution-dyed acrylic yarns that can sit both poolside and indoors. Sunbrella also wraps outdoor living spaces in bold, stylish colors and patterns (all in their sturdy Sunbrella acrylic) for a seamless transition from the living room to the veranda.
Along with fireplaces and complete outdoor kitchens, you can also incorporate decor commonly found inside like chandeliers and statement lighting for unexpected glamour. Floor-to-ceiling windows and movable, retractable walls of glass can also make the line between indoors and outdoors almost nonexistent and let that sunny, California ambiance trickle through to your interiors.
Indoor-outdoor living spaces may be on trend, but they also maximize your outdoor living space by creating an entertaining and living area you’ll want to be in all year long. Plus, by knocking down the living space boundaries, you can extend your interior design to the pool and landscape for even more color and continuity.
