Hot trends in outdoor spaces
Indoor ideas work outside as well
Expanding your living space to include the outdoors has been a big trend over the past few years.
More and more homeowners are taking the decorating ideas they’ve used inside their home and are bringing them outdoors.
Retailers are helping to fuel the trend by offering items like outdoor carpets, high- end furniture and accessories.
It’s easy to create a sophisticated outdoor living space without breaking the bank with a little advice from the decorating experts at RustOleum. So, get ready to throw out conventional rules and bring the indoors out. Here’s how.
Give your patio table and chairs a new high- end look. Designer patio sets can cost thousands of dollars. But, with finishes like Rust- Oleum’s MultiColor Textured, it’s easy to give your old patio set a contemporary look that’s virtually indistinguishable from a new patio set. Choose a rich multi- hued finish like Deep Forest, Radiant Brass, or Rustic Umber. Or, try a bright, bold color like Stops Rust Fresh Blue or Painter’s Touch Watermelon.
Don’t forget your accent pieces. Accent pieces make a house a home and it’s important to accent your outdoor spaces too.
Transform an ordinary lantern into a shimmering light fixture with Stops Rust Metallic spray paint in Champagne, Charcoal, Sage, Pale Gold or Rich Carmel.
To add a splash of color to your outdoor space, consider finishing your mailbox or a small table with American Accents Aqua.
If neutral colors are more your style, consider a cool crisp gray, like American Accents Stone Gray, or choose Granite for a sophis-
Sun-kissed: ticated upscale look.
Transform ordinary planters with bold splashes of color. It’s easy to bring new life into old planters — or give inexpensive planters a touch of style — with paint.
To match its expensive counterparts, spray a worn metal planter or flowerbox with Rust- Oleum Gold or Copper Hammered finishes. Using Rust- Oleum Specialty Plastic Primer, add a bold splash of color to an inexpensive plastic planter with a hot new hue like Painter’s Touch Caribbean Blue or Blue Sky.
