Coordinationg color in your home—inside and out

(NewsUSA) - Coordinating décor throughout the home is well known to homeowners. Everyone aspires to a home that flows seamlessly from one room to another, integrated in look and feel by paint colors, flooring and window treatments.

A relatively new aspect of coordinated home décor is evolving today. Homeowners are being encouraged to coordinate their sense of style from inside the home to outdoor living areas. As the size and sophistication of decks, patios and outdoor rooms grow each year, outdoor spaces are serving as extensions from inside the home.

“All of the wonderful appointments used in outdoor spaces have blurred the distinction between inside and outside living areas,” said Gina Wicker, creative director for the Sunbrella brand of performance fabrics. “With a tastefully decorated home, you feel as if you have walked into another room when you step onto a deck or patio.”

The latest generation of Sunbrella performance fabrics is the single most important element needed in achieving coordinated décor inside and out. These new fabrics are not only fade resistant, durable and easy to clean, they are also soft, comfortable and luxurious.

“When you work from a family of performance fabrics, it’s easy to coordinate colors, patterns and textures inside and out.”
