Summer is here, and since we want to spend most of our time socializing outdoors in the warm air and sunshine, it’s important to create an outdoor living room where you can do just that! Whether it’s for a patio or inside a screened porch, outdoor furniture is the best way to make your home as livable outside as it is inside. Back in May, the 2016 St. Jude’s Colorado Springs Dream Home was revealed with an awesome outdoor patio fully furnished by Furniture Row in this article, so here are some of the ways you can match the laid-back, breezy style our designers chose!
Outdoor Living Room Furniture
Just like your indoor living room, your outdoor living room should include comfortable furniture! Just because patio furniture is meant to withstand the elements, it doesn’t mean you should sacrifice plush seat cushions and good quality construction. The Brookstone collection used in the 2016 St. Jude’s Colorado Springs Dream Home features versatile cream-colored olefin seat and back cushions that resist fading, mildew, and staining. The open-cell foam cushions are quick drying and provide comfortable support atop virgin resin woven wicker, powder-coated for all kinds of weather. Similar to indoor furniture, when creating your outdoor living room, choose a matching set that features a sofa, chairs, and a loveseat that provide an endless amount of seating for your guests as they lounge. Tables like the Brookstone Coffee Table and the Brookstone End Table can also be incorporated into the mix and are perfect for holding drinks, reading materials, and other outdoor living essentials. The casual Brookstone collection is a great example of breezy furniture you will enjoy having when you need a breath of fresh air!
Outdoor Living Room Foliage
Even if trees don’t surround your home, you can still bring nature to your patio or porch by adding potted plants or flowers that will help create your own personalized Garden of Eden. Incorporate vases and pots on outdoor tables adjacent to a sofa or chair so that you get a little more greenery as you relax in your new outdoor living room.
Outdoor Living Room Accents
You can choose any color you like to accent versatile outdoor furniture such as the pieces found in the Brookstone, so decorate with a colorful hue that shines in the sun to make your own unique style and personality pop. The 2016 St. Jude’s Colorado Springs Dream Home uses various shades of blue for a bold complement against the clean-cut cream. A unique indigo Riviera Ogee Rug is funky on the ground, while the beige Solid Outdoor Pillow matches the Brookstone Sofa to complement the blue Textured Outdoor Pillow.
Next to the sofa, imitate the one-of-a-kind tasteful accessories that adorn the Brookstone Coffee Table in a tray just like Furniture Row’s Profile Tray. A tray is perfect for holding vases and other decorative items to help incorporate your own unique style and balance out the color scheme you have chosen.
