Our outdoor areas have always been bold, bright spaces that were pretty different from our interiors. In our new space, we see more similarity between our indoor and outdoor styles and the bold colors we’ve been incorporating in both. Could someone guess your home’s indoor style by glimpsing one of your outdoor areas?
If we were to use Apartment Therapy house tours as evidence, it would seem that many folks carry their interior style into their outdoor spaces—that their natural style shows up everywhere they decorate. But maybe others, like us, feel more comfortable to get bolder with color and style when the canvas is an outdoor space. Still others might not have the time/energy/space/budget to create an outdoor space that fits their personality.
Which category do you fall into? Do your outdoor spaces look similar in style to your home’s indoor spaces? Or do you feel more inspired or more comfortable being bolder in your outdoor areas? Let us know!
