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.
