This covered contemporary outdoor living room was designed with rustic elegance. Natural stone surrounds a wood burning fireplace and extends up the chimney meeting the cedar roof. The brown wicker furniture is padded with light, neutral cushions and green accent pillows.
The long white sectional is filled with white throw pillows for a padded finish to the sitting space. A white cabana cover shades the lounge area while keeping with the sunny and bright feel. A low Asian coffee table features sharp lines and a calm, neutral color. Wood cabinets built into the stone retaining wall provide easily accessible storage.
A white fence serves as a back wall to this outdoor living space. An area rug, plants and lots of pillows accessorize the space while dark wood outdoor furniture and a built-in white storage bench provide ample seating.
Natural linen adds a relaxed, organic feel to this seating area while mixing patterns on the navy pillows brings texture and style to the space. A variety of potted plants on the porch brings elements of the outdoors onto the covered porch and helps transform this corner into an outdoor living room.
Skip the orange and brown this fall, and choose a color scheme that's rustic and classic. The outdoor spaces of this house are decorated in shades of pine green and cranberry, a seasonally appropriate but less expected palette for autumn.
To maximize durability in your shed, Sherrod recommends the following: "make sure to keep climate in mind when picking out interior decor—especially humidity. While picking out your furniture and pillows make sure to look for items that are made with durable and strong materials," she says. "I recommend incorporating outdoor furniture because it's durable and can withstand any climate. Also be sure to have adequate windows or vents for air flow—this will keep you cool and comfortable."
Create a romantic look with two-toned outdoor furniture. Here, black and brown seating combine for a pleasing contrast. Medallion throw pillows add Mediterranean flair to the contemporary seating area.
