The surprising thing about fancy rooftop bars and glamorous resort pool decks is that their special ambiance comes from elements you probably have already in your own outdoor space: a summer breeze, good company, and fresh air. (Though, yes, a bar tab you can charge back to the room also helps.) What makes these areas feel so ritzy is a simple consideration for design. For all the time spent futzing over our interiors, it’s easy to leave our outdoor spaces an afterthought.

This can present a bit of a problem for decorators on a budget, because a new sofa—especially a really good-looking one—is a pretty spendy proposition.
