Trend Two: Nature Comes Inside

Breezy architecture and nature-inspired accents bridge the indoor-outdoor divide.

This trend speaks to our desire to connect to the outdoors. It's great for the nature lover who appreciates simple design, enjoys dining and entertaining alfresco and lives for natural light. Swap out an indoor side table or chair for a good-quality piece from your patio collection. Reupholster a chair or bench cushion in rattan. Replace metal hardware with stone or wooden knobs and pulls.
