Indoor-Outdoor Decorating Ideas from Ferrufino Interiors in Culver City, CA
Coordinated styles help blend indoor and outdoor design. Shown with Nantucket™ window shadings.

Blending your interior and outdoor living spaces enhances summer enjoyment.


Creating an outdoor living area that feels like an extension of your indoor space makes for a seamless and unified transition.

If you focus on your outdoor living space as much as your indoor design style, you’ll gain a welcoming look that makes it easy to glide effortlessly from indoors to outdoors and back. You’ll find that you use your outdoor space more, whether it’s a deck, terrace, garden or large backyard.

So many materials work well both for indoors and out, including teak, stainless steel, rattan, wicker, easy-care fabrics, glass and more. Focus on beauty, as well as function, for your outdoor living elements, so they don’t look like an afterthought, but rather a design style that’s coordinated with your interior décor.

Some design ideas to link your adjacent indoor and outdoor spaces include:

– Use similar colors, materials and styles inside and out.

– Introduce a few soft surfaces outdoors, such as rugs, throw pillows and soft upholstery.
 

More ideas are:

– Hang soft, translucent window fashions that make the outdoors look closer.

– Add matching accent pieces indoors and out, including table linens, lanterns, candles and flower arrangements.

– Plan adequate sun covering outdoors, using umbrellas, awnings or a built shading structure, so you’re willing to keep the windows and window treatments open without sun damage to furniture and floors.

– Use ceramic stools, durable tables and easy-clean dining chairs that you can move in and out as the need arises.

Bring your outdoor and indoor living spaces together for summer relaxation with family and friends. For more ideas or help with your next design project, contact the team at Ferrufino Interiors.
