Define an Outdoor Space
The key to creating a personalized outdoor space is to approach it as an aesthetic extension of your home interior, and consider style, function, mood and space. Be it a big backyard, tiny balcony, deck or patio, every space has a design style best defined by what happens in the space. Is the outdoor space for family dining, do you cook, do you want it for privacy, entertaining, reading, or multi-purposes, and what are its dimensions? The space must be functional, but engaging and inviting with the great outdoors as a backdrop.
Bring on the Green
Make the most of the natural habitat in your outdoor space and create a haven by planting fast growing greenery like ficus, ferns or wall vines. Balconies and patio spaces perfect for potted plants and flowers; and potted greenery, topiaries and hedges are wonderful poolside. If tastes run toward the minimal, even a touch of nature using a potted tree or simple hanging plant softens the environment and creates an inviting balance.
Materials That Work
Deciding on the materials for your outdoor space is determined first by the ability of the materials to remain beautiful and sound when exposed to the elements. Tried and true materials such as concrete, powder coated metal, stainless steel, wicker, and water resistant wood are the way to go. Concrete is durable and is perfect for space definition because it is permanent and stationary. Sustainable teak is a beautiful hardwood resistant to the elements that adds a natural, exotic and modern simplicity to a design scheme.
Pick a Palette
Create a distinctive mood through use of color, print, patterns and neutrals designed to harmonize with flowers, plants and greenery. The palette for furniture and accessories, combined with pillows, rugs, and upholstery is what creates ambience and a personal signature. Even if the palette is in neutrals, a bright Sunbrella is a modern and playful way to add a pop of color.
Outdoor Furniture Starts With a Seat
A comfortable place to sit and engage is always at the top of the list in outdoor living. Lightweight, durable, natural, pieces that weather well and are easy to clean, are best. Viesso’s Santa Monica Outdoor Store runs the full design and material spectrum from colorful stackable metal folding chairs to comfortable cushioned chairs and sofas with sustainable teak frames. Seating combines comfort with minimalism and clean lines, with special attention to durable covers that protect furniture from weather exposure.
Lounges go without saying, and outdoor spaces were made for them. Viesso’s Sun Loungers in slatted sustainable teak, comfortable marine-grade coated aluminum-framed chaises, Sun-brellas and cozy Cabanas for two– the selection is fresh and detailed. For advanced outdoor lounging, graduate to the daybed. The Jane Daybed has a resort feel with durable wicker base and Sunbrella canopy fit for the discerning lounge expert who knows how to make the most of outdoor relaxation.
Sofas and More
Sofas and sectionals invite people to linger and relax, and their stability defines a space. Stools and chairs are mobile and can be moved around easily, which is especially important when conversation and sun dodging invite an individual to be casual and move about. Clean and frame your space by replacing some chairs with upholstered benches and banquettes. Perhaps choose a wide banquette seat that provides mixed seating and doubles as a serving surface. Choose a sofa, sectional and additional seating that do not overwhelm the space but create intimacy as well as conversation areas.
Dining al Fresco
Nothing is quite as enjoyable as dining outside when the weather is beautiful and the company inviting. Maybe it’s lunch for two or a special dinner with family and friends, it all begins with a table and chairs. A cheerful bistro table is always a good fit in a small space, especially when chairs and table can fold away. When an outdoor area has more room, what about a chic reclaimed teak table with upholstered club chairs? The look is clean and serene, designed to harmonize with the beauty of the natural setting. Colorful metal sets are festive options that add a stroke of color to an outdoor setting. Tables and chairs are durable, practical, and come in a variety of contour shapes and sizes.
Warming Things Up
What can be cozier and more intimate than an outdoor fire on a cool summer night? A fireplace is a focal point when entertaining, and it extends the life of the party or the time and season spent outdoors comfortably. The sleek and modern eco-friendly fireplace designs from the Santa Monica Outdoor Furniture Store are completely portable, have no harmful emissions, and are perfect accent pieces. Beauty, modernity and conscious living through environmentally sustainable materials is a philosophy to live by.
Home is Where Outdoors Is
A home’s outdoor space is no longer just a grassy plot for kids and pets. From luxury pool patios to sprawling gardens to barbeques, outdoor spaces have extended the current vision of home to encompass a place and time in nature with friends and family. The outdoor living space uses the beauty of nature in your own backyard. Enjoy, relax and make the most of it!
