Bring the Indoors <em>Out</em>

While it's important to make sure your outdoor room is protected from potentially harsh weather conditions, it should ultimately feel like an extension of your home's interior. In her Spanish-inspired outdoor living room, Carole Meyer brought all the coziness of an interior living space onto her patio by incorporating rich wood furnishings, artwork, plush fabrics and accessories. A wood-beamed ceiling and breezy white draperies keep everything protected, while still offering all the comfort and luxury of a living room. She didn't skimp on a single detail either — there's a daybed, fireplace and dining table perfect for intimate gatherings.
