Indoor Style for Your Outdoor Space
With the temperatures heating up and the days starting to get longer, it’s no wonder that many of us have spring fever. So as the buds start popping out from the trees and the spring flowers begin to bloom, why not begin moving the indoors to the outdoors?
Creating a place to relax or dine outside has always been popular in warm climates where outdoor living is second nature. Now, the trend is also popular in the northern climates where enjoying the warm weather is a special treat.
No matter where you might live, any outdoor porch, deck, patio, or lawn can become your outdoor living room. All you need is a little creativity, inexpensive furniture and a few cans of spray paint, and you can easily transform your backyard into a beautiful living area.
Designing and creating your second living room is easy with Krylon Outdoor Spaces spray paint. When designing your outdoor space, let your imagination run wild! Do you want rich-looking metallics coupled with animal prints for a back-yard safari look? Metallic Finish works well for this trendy retreat. How about the feeling of a villa on the coast of the Mediterranean Sea? Textured Finish can add a subtle, sophisticated texture to planters and furniture. If old Roman architecture is not the look for you, Hammered Finish can create a contemporary and clean look to your modern backyard. For any design style, try Satin Finish in natural, calming colors like Fern, Boulder, and Earth.
Outdoor Spaces makes it easy because the spray paint comes in coordinated colors to suit most any design style. If you need additional inspiration, why not try one of the following ideas?
For a fun, colorful look, use Watermelon, Grape, and Lemon in Satin Finish. These fresh colors can update any chair, table or even a backyard fence. Paint with patterns like polka dots or stripes and don’t forget to accessorize with bright flowerpots and cushions.
Instead of traveling abroad, try creating an exotic setting right in your own backyard. Begin with neutral colors like Brick, Earth, and Moss in Satin Finish, then add colors and accessories from your favorite vacation spot. Create some unexpected elements to your design such a table made from stacked suitcases painted to match. Design your own “flooring” using ordinary canvas stenciled with Satin Finish in Brick. Add a bamboo shade for privacy and paint a design using a leaf stencil and Satin Finish Lime and Moss. Use the same leaf pattern and colors on matching accent pillows. Remember, wicker can always be spray painted to match your decor. Here, the wicker chair is painted using Satin Finish in Brick.
If you like something a little more lavish, create the look of luxury even on a budget by combining rich metallic colors. Paint statues, pillars, and planters using Gold, Silver and Copper in Metallic Finish and Antique Bronze and Platinum in Textured Finish. Use a room screen painted in Gold Metallic Finish and Onyx Satin Finish for an elegant backdrop to your luxurious setting.
Regardless of the outdoor style you select, try using basic furniture pieces that you can easily repaint later if your style changes. Spray paint and a few well-chosen accessories can help you renew your outdoor space as often as you choose for just a little time and just a little money.
