Taking Quiet Luxury Outdoors

As Memorial Day nears, you may be looking forward to making memories with family and friends outdoors or just enjoying some quiet time surrounded by nature on your deck. From al fresco dining to a refreshing space to hang out with friends, a patio can act as a second dining and living room area if designed properly. Your outdoor living space, whether on your front porch or back patio, is a reflection of you and of the inside of your home. Continue the “quiet luxury” vibe of your home’s interior to your outdoor spaces.

Here are some best practices for building your picture-perfect outdoor oasis:

1) Coordinate dining and seating that flows from the interior of your home to the exterior spaces

This porch was designed to enable the homeowners to dine and relax while enjoying the gorgeous view. Black wrought iron furniture with teal striped cushions coordinates with the style and color scheme of this ocean side home.

2) Unify space with a classic color scheme

The classic black and white palette is carried out from the cozy loveseat to outdoor area rug of this refreshing balcony.

3) Add an outdoor kitchen

This is the ultimate feature to extend the use of living area. Woven wood shades were added to diffuse the light on sunny days and insulate the space in early spring and fall.

3) Gather around a fire pit

4) Add a sense of luxury with accessories

Outdoor spaces should be kept fairly simple to not distract from the beauty of the world around you.

Simple hand hammered wall decor, contrasting pillows and a potted plant elevate the aesthetic of this sunny spot.

5) Enclose a sunroom for year ’round enjoyment

Since this morning room is safe from the elements, we could dare to add elegant touches such as the swivel chairs with gold bases, cafe leather and lacquer framed barstools and a luxurious area rug.

Airy embroidered drapery soften the angles and diffuses the light when needed.

What a perfect example of  a “quiet luxury” style decor!
