Tips For Seamless Indoor-Outdoor Living Space
Who couldn’t use more living space? In Southern California, you can enjoy outdoor living any month of the year. If you are looking for ways to create indoor-outdoor living spaces for you and your guests to enjoy, here are some tips from Grayson Living to get you started.
Pick the right furniture for your Indoor-Outdoor Living Space
If your home offers a covered indoor-outdoor living room, it might be easier to furnish the space. You don't need to buy special, weatherproof furniture. This way you can be as creative as you want. But if you need high-end outdoor furniture, don't worry! We have you covered. Our Summer Classics Collection will meet the needs of even the hardest to please clients.

Choose furnishings that create a sense of flow and spaciousness. When you are choosing chairs or a sofa for an outdoor room, make sure the seat feels comfortable. The purpose of outdoor furniture is lounging.
Add some light
Lighting is crucial to add character and coziness to a living space. Invest in good quality lights that will last longer and be waterproof.
String lights are extremely versatile. You can string them around your deck, an umbrella, on a pergola above your dining area, or through trees and around tall shrubs or topiaries. Check out our selection of outdoor lights.
Candlelight is also a perfect way to add warmth to the outdoor space, literally and figuratively. Place smaller candles on a table, and bigger ones in hurricane lanterns on the ground as path lights. Hurricane lanterns are glass cases that will keep your tabletop lit no matter how windy it is. Introduce two or three in varying heights and stagger them to create a more sophisticated look.

Don't forget to decorate
Make your outdoor-indoor living space feel as inviting as the rest of your house with some beautiful pieces.
Rugs are helpful tools for visually grounding a seating area and giving furnishings greater context. They provide a soft place for bare feet to rest and add some coziness. Depending on the space, you can choose a regular rug or special outdoor rug that is designed to withstand the weather and is easy to keep clean.
Plants can visually fill a space and create a sense of flow in indoor-outdoor areas. Use big potted plants in corners and doorways, and place smaller succulents on the table. Succulents with bright colors don’t do well indoors. They require some direct sunlight, typically more than is available indoors, so they are a better choice for an outdoor area.
Indoor-outdoor dining area
There’s something about being outside that turns an ordinary dining experience into a special occasion. Food tastes better when you’re outdoors so it's good to splurge on dining furniture and enjoy meals in the fresh air.
