Garden

Discover how to design an outdoor space like a designer. Enjoy these 20 inspiring photos of the creative garden, terrace, balcony, porch, and deck designs.

 

Sitting in the garden after a long day at work and resting your eyes and thoughts – embraced by the sights and sounds of Nature. Watching the romantic sunrise or sunset with your significant other. Going on a literary journey in the company of a good book. Relaxing on the beach. Having a delicious meal in the open air of your terrace – outdoor dining room. These are some of the outdoor scenarios that we all enjoy so much. Your garden, terrace, balcony, porch, and deck are an outdoor stage on which these enjoyable scenarios take place. Here are 20 creative ideas for setting the design and decor of these spaces in the open air.

 

 

Merging Inside and Outside of Home Design – Outdoor Furniture That Looks Like Indoor Furniture

Armchairs, loveseats, corner-sofas, and any other kind of seating furniture for the indoor living room, can be found in the outdoor version as well. The same applies to coffee tables, dining tables, and chairs, lamps. These furnishings and lighting fixtures are made of materials that are more suited for open spaces. However, their forms are very similar to the forms of the furniture for the interiors.

Lounge Area by the Pool and on the Beach

Daybeds with canopies are an essential part of poolside and beach area design. Their light colors and fabrics that dance in the wind create a refreshing space.
