Rug Love: Update Your Outdoor Space

When designing outdoor spaces for entertaining, many of us forget the one element we use indoors to tie our spaces together: area rugs. Just in time for summer, we’ve collected 5 of our favorite images of exterior rooms styled with area rugs to inspire your garden party decor. Just they would in your indoor space, these area rugs are used to define seating areas, add color and drama. Liven up any outdoor space from patio to pool area.


This is a classic example of Hamptons Chic. Lots of natural light, clean, minimalist but with hints of color. The perfect staging area for your summer cocktail party.

This Los Angeles interior designer’s highly stylized backyard mixes a desert, western style with modern accents. This outdoor living room is complete with tan and white poufs and a fur throw to match.

Classic Woodsy/Beachy Amagansett Style with some chic deco accents (see gold coffee table legs and black and white accent throw pillows). A perfect example of chic rug layering with multiple pattern styles.

Blue and yellow are always a match made in (pantone) heaven. These two outdoor rugs really define the seating area while highlighting the two-tone color palette.

What a gorgeous example of Moroccan styled outdoor decor.
