It is all about Inside Out in Elle Decoration this month.  How to work smart indoor style outside.

The Outdoor Room - Use Interior Design know-how to transform your outside space into the ideal summer lounging spot.

Whether you have a luscious, expansive garden, a small urban courtyard or something in between, the approach to creating an outdoor room should be just the same as when you're decorating inside.  Think about how furniture will work together and the level people will be sat at - choose pieces with similar proportions and keep handy side tables close by.  Comfort is key, so add plenty of squidgy cushions in weatherproof fabrics.  As for lighting, many brands now sell outdoor versions of their best-selling interior models.  Finally, add colour with one of this season's new outdoor rugs, which have been specifically designed for outdoor use.  Click the image below to browse all our indoor/outdoor rugs.
