Bring the Outdoors inside in 10 steps
Follow these 10 steps and you will have a Coastal space that blurs the line to the outdoors.1.Entryways
One way to get the most for your money: Focus on the area where inside meets outdoors, whether it's a sun room, porch, patio, entryway or just a room with a great view. Carry an item that is outside in. This could be a door mat, potted plant or a table and chairs just inside the house in view of where the outdoors meets the indoors. This will create the effect of the outdoor space continuing inside.
2. Indoor- outdoor fabrics.
Another trick that blurs the line: Use indoor-outdoor fabrics in your living areas inside as well as outside. Fabrics are available in many colors and patterns, use the same fabric on your deck, terrace or patio and the adjoining room. Go one step further and have upholstered furniture outside as well as in.Then if you have your door open, the design flows from one to the other.
