With the transition from summer to fall quickly upon us it's time to start thinking about quick and easy backyard room improvements! One of the more popular backyard room trends of 2016 is bringing indoor living outdoors.
3 important elements to consider when bringing indoor living outdoors this fall:
Cohesive indoor to outdoor styles
Variety of seating options
Warm & cozy surroundings
Cohesive Indoor to Outdoor Styles
Maintaining a flow from your indoor space to your outdoor space is a very important aspect of successfully bringing your indoor living outdoors. A great way to accomplish this is to maintain a similar theme or color pallet cohesively from inside to out.
If your home has a more eclectic style or feel it would be a good idea to continue with that flow outdoors. The decor can have a huge impact on the feel of your space so adding similar colored rugs or keeping the same materials consistent from inside to outside will do just the trick!

If you have a more modern flow throughout your house stick with that concept and include sharp, hard lines in your backyard room furniture. You can't go wrong incorporating grays and blacks into your backyard color scheme as well!

Variety of Seating Options
Another important aspect of bringing indoor living outdoors, is adding a variety of seating options into your backyard room. Incorporating multiple seating options allows you to host both small and large gatherings. A few different types of seating that are good to have around are benches, chairs, lounges, and ottomans. If the furniture is light weight and easy to move around even better!
Warm & Cozy Surroundings
Depending on where you live some will experience more of a fall than others (I live in Phoenix, Arizona). The hardest part of bringing indoor living outdoors is making sure it's comfortable even when it starts to get chilly. Here are some easy tips for making your surroundings warm & cozy this fall season:
• String Lights • Firepits • Warm Color Schemes •
