Details like a sectional with comfy cushions and accent pillows in bright colors give an outdoor space flair and personality. This one, as seen on HGTV’s House Hunters Renovation, features a new Mia Dark Brown Novelty 18-inch Decorative Pillow provided by Overstock.com.
Colorful indoor outdoor pillows bring tropical colors into this relaxing space. Moroccan lanterns and breezy curtains carry on in tropical style, while woven patio furniture invites guests to linger under the ceiling fan. Window screens keep out the bugs, making this a true oasis.
This deck has an outdoor kitchen complete with a bar and living room with furniture that will survive the elements. Use durable materials like redwood, stone furniture and outdoor pillows to ensure your outdoor entertaining space holds up to the weather.
There's nothing sour about this well-styled patio sofa. In a small space, all you may need are a couple of pillows and accessories. It could be as simple as looking in your fridge. Here, designers Gabriela Eisenhart and Holly Conlan with WAKE + LOOM Design placed lemons in a metal bowl for a burst of color. You can sew a simple outdoor pillow as well.
Oversized pillows do the obvious work of cushioning metal outdoor dining chairs, but they also can disguise wear and tear. Designer Monica Stewart, who owns The Misfit House in Athens, Ga., positioned these strategically to cover up scuff marks on chairs. If you’re on a covered porch, you can even grab indoor pillows to spruce up a space for an evening of entertaining and then bring them back inside.
The chairs in this outdoor living room are durable and comfortable. They are made from materials that can easily withstand the weather, such as canvas cushions and a natural wood frame. Those cushions are accented with outdoor throw pillows and a woven rug to add color, but maintain the durability every outdoor living space needs.
Every outdoor retreat needs a few amenities, like a simple DIY bar. A bar like this is easy to stock whether you’re hosting yourself, family or a crowd, and it can also pull double duty as a privacy wall if you place it strategically. To decide other items you might want to include in your retreat, think about how you’ll use it. A meditation retreat calls for cushy pillows and zen-inspired stones, while a spot for an evening sip of wine needs only a comfy seat with wide arms.
Furnishing an outdoor room can quickly add up, but using creativity and some elbow grease will save your budget. "Visit flea markets and find inexpensive furniture to paint or otherwise repurpose," designer Lourdes Dumke says. Colorful spray paints are great for plastic furniture and don't require priming. Dress up other pieces with slipcovers and outdoor fabric pillows.
All natural venner and wall stone form an outdoor living room under a cedar roof structure and LED lighting. Wicker arm chairs and a matching sofa surround a wooden coffee table facing the arched fireplace and mounted television. Neutral cushions are accented with green throw pillows.
