Whether you have a conservatory, orangery, or a balcony, taking advantage of outdoor spaces has never felt more important than now, as the pandemic has cancelled all travel plans. There’s little that’s more inviting than a well designed outdoor space that has all the comforts of the indoors.
It doesn’t matter if it’s to be your private retreat, or so you can host a (socially distanced) lavish garden party, the key is adding the creature comforts of the indoors to the outdoor environment, bringing some of the outdoors in, and blending style and functionality to extend your living space from the house to the garden.
Biophilia is still one of the hottest trends in interior design, and it’s all about the indoor/outdoor connection in your living spaces. Make sure there is as much green as you can manage by introducing plants and natural materials for a calming space.
Achieving an outdoor space that blends nature with the comforts of indoor living, focus on natural elements that feature on furnishings, and natural materials such as bamboo, rattan and others.
Sustainability is also a major consideration for both indoor and outdoor decor. Many recycled and repurposed materials and sustainable natural materials, such as bamboo and cotton, are on-trend as consumers continue to take more responsibility as to their environmental impact.
However, the features and styles that reflect the outdoors that we all desire are not complete unless they have a measure of convenience and functionality that mirrors their indoor counterparts as well.
Today’s outdoor furniture and decor offerings include performance fabrics that are water, stain and sunlight resistant in beautiful patterns and vibrant colours. These fabrics and rugs for outdoor patios can even stand up to bleach in some cases or can be hosed off to keep spaces fresh.
