Outdoor Room Series: Patios + Balconies The best outdoor rooms mimic what we love about indoor spaces – they include comfortable seating and practical and pretty accessories, but they have the added benefit of being situated out in the sun and surrounded by foliage. What could be better? So I rounded up five favorite elements for creating your own blissful outdoor room!
I, for one, love a good patio umbrella. You get to be outdoors, while basking in the shade or being sheltered from the rain — brilliant!. My deck is covered, so I don't need an umbrella, but that doesn't stop me from singing their praises. Apparently there are some creative folks out there who feel the same, and who have gone to great lengths to incorporate umbrellas into the outdoor experience in some innovative ways.
