When thinking through and designing your outdoor space, one thing to consider is creating consistency with the inside of your home. Much like how I love to bring outdoor elements in (for example, plants and greenery), I also love to bring indoor elements out. Typical interior furnishings like rugs, upholstered fabrics, and light fixtures can be a great way to create consistency between your interior and exterior spaces.
Even more importantly, when thinking through your outdoor space you always need to prioritize functionality. How are you going to use your space? Would you enjoy watching TV outside? Are you looking for a place to kick your feet up and relax? Would you only use your outdoor space for entertaining? Would you need some sort of shade covering? Answering these type of questions will help guide you to making the best decisions for dream outdoor space!
