Transform Your Patio Into A Second Living Room

outdoor interiors

There is nothing more inviting than having friends over in a comfortable outdoor setting. When Lonny ask me to dream up a look that anyone could do to create an outdoor living room – I jumped at the chance to design this outdoor oasis.

I grouped a variety of my favorite pillows and put them together with an incredible Moroccan throw. In addition, I added baskets – old and new – that I have been collecting for years. The rug and the wicker chair just make the space scream for someone to settle in and read your favorite book.

    Wow. Amazing work, Lonny! I think I know what to do with our patio now. I was thinking of incorporating somehting like this after I apply a stamped overlay on the concrete surface.
