Inspired by interior design ideas at a recent homes tour, I realized several could work just as well outdoors:
Black furnishings and accents add drama outdoors.
Lattice print fabrics for poufs, cushions and pillows fit perfectly in a garden setting.
Industrial castoffs and architectural salvage become even more charmingly aged outdoors. Here, industrial containers for flowers, a milestone as a fountain and ceiling tiles as wall art.
Decorators are inspired by many shades of gray. Give a deck, patio furniture or shutters a fresh look with gray paint.
Indoors or out, metallic finishes can be paired beautifully with organic elements.
