We always encourage bringing the outdoors inside your home with plants and succulents, but have you ever thought about bringing the indoors outside? When you are designing your backyard and patio, try incorporating designs that translate into the style of your home’s interior. You may think: how do I do that? We have three tips for creating a continual flow from the inside of your house to the outside of your house.
Tips for Bringing The Indoors Outside:
Understand Your Style.
Before you begin designing your backyard, you need a better understanding of your home’s interior style. Take some time to evaluate your home’s design, patterns, flow and stylistic choices. What are your favorite features of the home? After you have a better understanding, you can begin to plan your exterior’s design. You want to create a continual flow from the home’s interior design to the exterior design without being obvious.
Determine Your Color Scheme.
Your exterior color scheme does not need to be the typical colors found outdoors. You can use a color that you have subtly used throughout your home as your primary color outdoors. If you are having trouble choosing a color, pick a decorative piece to put outside and build a design off of it. For example, if you have a beautiful aqua vase that you want in your exterior design, start with it and begin shaping your designs around it.
Add in Interior Pieces.
There are several features in your home’s interior that will work perfectly in your backyard’s design. Focus on adding items like:
Lighting. String lighting can create a romantic outdoor escape for you and your loved one. Try hanging them from trees in your backyard and connecting them to your house to create an intricate design.
Furniture. A lot of your indoor furniture can translate into your outdoor design. Make sure to choose furniture that can handle your area’s weather like glass or iron.
Decor. Your interior decorative pieces can be used to design your outdoors. Try pulling some items from inside your home to decorate your backyard. Always finish off with fresh flowers to add a nice fragrance.
