Look for Less: Fabulous Outdoor Space

patio

Hello, Young Sophisticates readers! It's Marche' from #eyecandy with another Look for Less column! Now that many of us have been experiencing unseasonably warm weather, I thought an outdoor space would be the perfect inspiration for this post! I love lounging outside during the Spring and Summer. How gorgeous is this patio I found on decorpad? It's hard not to mistake this beauty with an indoor space. With the plush furniture, contemporary lighting, and outdoor rug, this is a comfortable place to hang out.

My favorite part of the room has to be the glass pendant lanterns. They are the perfect choice for an outside room and bring a modern feel to the space. Horchow's Faceted Glass Pendant Light is a great option. I even love the chrome finish. If you aren't able to install pendant lighting, try Zgallerie's Decan Lantern. It's much easier to move around and it's a steal at under $40!

An outdoor rug brings instant warmth to a patio. The one pictured not only protects the wood floors, but it also helps designate the patio's sitting area. A jute rug is an affordable option that will give you the same effect. Pottery Barn's Border Indoor/Outdoor Rug and West Elm's Braid Jute Rug are both perfect rugs for outdoor rooms. Both are available in a variety of sizes. You will no doubt find the perfect size!

After purchasing the perfect rug and lighting, add some bright pillows and potted flowers and you'll have the chicest outdoor space on the block!
