Whether you have a patio, deck, backyard, ocean views, or acres of land, outdoor living has become an integral part of the home. The “California Room” is key, not only for home entertaining, but for relaxation after a long day.
Purchase your outdoor pieces as soon as possible. Don’t wait until the end of summer, as items will be back ordered or worse, out of stock!
With so many outdoor fabrics and furnishings to choose from, creating a space unique to you can be daunting. We recommend choosing a style that speaks to you as a jumping off point. Take a look at our curated collections below for inspiration!

An Eclectic Hideaway
A bohemian inspired style is the perfect space to entertain guests and spark conversation. Eclectic design is all about mixing your favorite products together to create a cohesive and curated whole. Using a fringe trim on outdoor pillows and throw blankets adds texture. Try mixing a modern settee and layered Moroccan rugs for balanced contrast. Add stylish yet functional pieces, like a gold-finished bar cart to get the party started!
Create a contemporary outdoor space, using smooth textures, and an achromatic color scheme. The benefit of a modern patio, is that it can be used year round. Introduce the elements by incorporating a minimalist water fountain or fireplace. Use lots of natural materials like cement, and rough stone. Complete your stylish space with a touch of luxury by adding a few stainless-steel pieces.

If you can’t make it to the Hamptons this summer, you can still bring Cape Cod aesthetic into your space. This sophisticated style is inspired by the rich ocean blues and white sands of the North-East coast. Use tailored outdoor cushions with a striped or nautical motif. Keep your patio furniture light and bright with beach woods and wicker. For a relaxing night on the deck, add industrial lanterns with white pillar candles. Finish your outdoor space with sea shell decor, and mother of pearl finishes.

Unwind in the outdoor retreat of your dreams. For ultimate relaxation stick to the new neutrals: white, beige, tan, taupe, blush, light gray, and charcoal. Center your furniture around a coffee table with curves to create radial symmetry and intimacy. Think outside the box by accessorizing your patio with a large mirror or wall art. Liven up the neutral color scheme with some fresh flowers in a glittering vase.

It’s a Jungle Out There
Let the natural light shine through the palms and falling vines. To create a unique backyard, introduce all the elements you would find deep in the jungle. For patterns, try using leopard, zebra, and leaves. Create your own safari by adding playful animal decor. Use dark, natural woods and bamboo in your furnishings. Contrast the woods with a crisp linen on your upholstered pieces. Go ahead and get lost in your own, private jungalow.
