Outdoor is the New Indoor: Patio Inspiration

This month we’re dreaming of warmer days and helping you get your vacation home spring break ready. As part of our series on building the “coastal living” look, we’re highlighting some of our favorite pieces.  Following up on our recent post about some of the choices in outdoor furniture, we’re going to help you bring the comfort of the indoors to your deck or patio.

It’s been said that outdoor is the new indoor. These days there’s no need to skimp on style and comfort when putting together outdoor lounge spaces.  As a matter of fact, we’d argue that your deck needs more than just comfortable seating. To really deliver the coastal style, you need to incorporate occasional tables, fantastic throws, accessories and even rugs.

No time to take advantage of our special promotion for a design consultation to plan your own deck?  Here’s an idea for an outdoor room that could work with your space. (And yes, the special discounted pricing still applies. Lucky you!)
