Decorating Your Porch and Outdoor Living Spaces

"Never underestimate the power of a rug. Indoor/outdoor rugs in vibrant colors and patterns can make even the simplest of porches look magazine ready."  ~ KariAnne Wood of Thistlewood Farm

Whether you have a porch, pool, or patio, take advantage of the warm weather by giving it a decor boost with a colorful indoor outdoor area rug. Here is a selection our Jantzen Beach Design Consultant, Memet Ertas, picked as favorites.

Go with a gardening theme or a bold floral. "You can never go wrong with stripes," says Memet. He adds, "There are so many wonderful color combinations and variations - And remember that stripes can widen or elongate a small space like a porch, so it's a great option."

Just like they do indoors, a rug helps to unify a space. You can pull your entire color scheme from the rug or pull all the colors you already have together with the rug - "It's a win-win either way!"

The options are endless. Imagine how welcomed guests will feel as they step up onto your porch. Not to mention how happy the family will be to hang out together in an outdoor living room.

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
