Design Tips: Living Big In Small Outdoor Spaces

5 Coastal chic design tips for big impact in small spaces.

Coastal Chic Slipcover Outdoor Living Room

1. Indoor/ Outdoor. Use pieces that look like they belong inside. This tends to blur the line of defined outdoor space. A great outdoor slipcover sofa paired with a boathouse striped area rug that can withstand the elements will create the perfect outdoor space with big coastal style.

2. Statement Piece. Don't be afraid to go big and bold with one great design piece. One big element can create a focal point for a garden area, drawing attention and prompting people to gather there. A super example of this would be fire bowl in the center of your coastal outdoor living room. 

Hanging Day Bed On Balcony

3. Utilize Every Little Inch. Don't forget to utilize balconies! Fill that space with a coastal hanging day bed or swing to make the best use of the space.  This will add a great place to lounge or get lost in a book.

Salvaged Shutter Vertical Garden

4. Go Vertical. Add a garden even if you don't think you have the space to spare for a little green. Vertical gardens can fit in small spaces with ease, when you can't expand out go up.

Coastal Outdoor Living With Drifwood Mirror

5. Mirrored Space. Create the illusion of more by hanging a large mirror outdoor to reflect light and make the space feel like it continues. A large driftwood mirror is the prefect addition to any outdoor coastal space.
