Outdoor decor: One space, two designs
Two dynamic outdoor spaces with completely different looks: Clean contemporary and rustic charm.
With the bucolic beauty of Mother Nature as your backdrop, it’s easy to create a dynamic outdoor living space that entices and intrigues. Here, we’ve created two different looks, both totally unique but equally stylish. Better hurry: You’re just in time to enjoy the final moments of warm-weather bliss.
Design #1: Clean contemporary
Washed in a sea of pale greys, crisp whites and stony blues, this serene scene has the feel of a modern seaside sanctuary. The linear profiles of the sofa, ottoman and coffee table have a hard, contemporary edge, but subtle details like layers of plush toss cushions and delicately woven sidechairs feel laid-back and uncontrived.
1 Outdoor furniture has come a long way. With its slim, angular shape and sophisticated stony grey colour, the Madison resin wicker sofa by Andrew Richard Designs looks good enough to be indoors – and is just as comfy, too!
2 A cool mix of grey and white toss cushions in solid hues and graphic patterns adds interest and appeal to the clean lines of the modern sofa.
3 The sculptural white sidechairs, with their pretty webbing detail and delicate frames, lend an ethereal quality to the space.
4 The minimalist look of the long coffee table echoes the sofa. Its sturdy, durable design means it can withstand the elements (and spilled drinks).
Clean contemporary: Modern aesthetic
The smooth concrete finish and contemporary silhouette of this firepit suits the surrounding modern aesthetic. Its subtle gas-powered flame reads as smart and sophisticated in this outdoor design.
Design #2: Rustic charm
Comfort is on the menu in this cozy and stylish outdoor abode. Cheery fall colours and organic textures come together here to create an intimate and inviting setting. The collection of casual furniture feels like it’s been curated over time, and rustic touches like the natural wooden stools and weathered firepit give a nod to the pastoral surroundings.
1 This sofa livens up the whole scene, with fire-engine red upholstery that adds a welcome hit of colour to the darker tones in the space. Its traditional shape complements a more relaxed look.
2 On the toss cushions, bold patterns in rich autumnal shades of orange, gold and brown imbue the overall aesthetic with warmth and invite cozying up by the fire late into the evening.
3 These black sidechairs go way beyond basic patio furniture. Their handsome form and tall, sturdy backs make them standout pieces, even against all the bright colours and textures in this outdoor setting.
4 With quiet curves and intricate weaving, the coffee table feels like a piece of vintage furniture. Its casual vibe lends itself well to the mix of materials, such as wood, wicker and steel.
Rustic charm: Create a cozy space
With earthy appeal and a rustic patina, the wood-burning steel bowl firepit adds the perfect touch of coziness to the space.
