Trend Tuesday: Bringing the Outdoors In

I think it is fantastic that the lines between indoors and outdoors have been blurred. The metal chairs above were originally used outdoors in a garden, but look so cool indoors around a big heavy dining table. Bringing the outdoors in just creates amazing texture, without trying too hard. The chairs above are from http://www.finecountryfurniture.com/, $157.00 per chair, great price.

This rug with it's snazzy zebra pattern is actually an outdoor rug available from http://www.ballarddesigns.com/, $59.00 to $549.00. While an outdoor rug may not be the best choice for comfort in a family or living room, they are great in the dining area, especially for families with small children, take it out and hose it off.

This wicker bar cart would look just as good inside as it does outside, again, it's all about texture. Bar cart from www.potterybarn.com, $299.00.
