Apparently, This Is the Biggest Patio Décor Trend for Spring—and It's SO Chic

When it comes to patio décor ideas, designers agree on one simple tip for spring: Bring the indoors out. In some cases, that means being inspired by the way you might lay out, furnish, and accessorize an indoor room when styling an outdoor space. In other instances, it makes more sense to literally bring indoor accessories outside, even if it’s only temporarily for the purpose of entertaining. The truth is, the chicest outdoor spaces are actually quite similar to their indoor counterparts: well-layered, comfortable, and inviting.
