We know most of our clients want a dreamy outdoor space and we know most of you do too. Here are our top tips for creating the perfect outdoor living room:
- Make sure you have plenty of light: There are a lot of chandeliers and pendants made for outdoor use now, overhead lighting provides ambiance and intimacy to any space especially our outdoor ones. Select a chandelier or pendant for your outdoor space that is fun and not as formal as what you would put inside.
- Purchase outdoor furniture that looks like indoor furniture: Outdoor furniture has come a long way in the past few years. Upholstery is now made with proper ventilation for outdoor use, and outdoor fabrics are now just as soft and cozy as indoor ones. Select a comfy sofa or sectional that makes you want to lounge and stay outside forever.
- Have fun with toss pillows, floor pillows, and poufs: Our outdoor spaces are all about lounging, company, and enjoying the moment, make sure you have plenty of fun oversized floor pillows and poufs that allow your family and friends to get comfortable and encourages them to stay a while.
- Accessorize Wisely: Outdoor spaces are subject to the elements, so not all indoor accessories work outside. We suggest popping hints of color in your outdoor tableware, your beach blankets, and in your planters. These are things that are meant for outside, so have fun with them.
We hope this encourages you to start your outdoor living project and to have fun with it! We at Tuvalu, Laguna Beach are always here to help, we love our clients and love seeing their spaces transform into something dreamy.
