Living in San Francisco, I have to say, our outdoor space is an afterthought.  Add that to the fact that we are concentrating on a fairly extensive interior remodel and our outdoor space is barely a thought at all.  But then, every once in a while, we have a beautiful warm day and I wish that our outdoor space was more of an extension of our house.  I see photos, like the one above, and I get inspired to try to create an “outdoor room.”

One thing that seems to make these spaces into “outdoor rooms” is the use of a rug to create a unified space.  In the past, an outdoor rug has seemed impractical.  But, I think I am convinced by these photos that they are a key item for making yard or porch feel more like a room.

So now I am on the hunt.  Here are the outdoor rugs that have caught my eye recently.  Do you have a favorite or great resource?  Leave us a comment.
