Trend Alert – Bring The Inside, Out!
May 25, 2010 by 18 Comments
You know the term, “bring the outside in” when it comes to interior decorating…large open windows, lush greenery and flowers, even garden-style furniture pieces. This trend is doing the opposite and bringing indoor pieces, outside for entertaining. I love this idea because it really helps create a cozy atmosphere when you’re in the midst of wide open space. Here are some beautiful examples:
Desk tables and decor mark the spot for writing well-wishes to the guest of honor, viewing photos, housing a welcome book, etc. Chests (oh, how I love the open moss-filled drawers) can act as the dessert table or drink station. You can even pull out some old drawers and display treats inside.
You can use shabby chic furniture styles, or sleek modern styles to incorporate this look. It’s unexpected and very cool!
