REINVENTING OUTDOOR LIVING
Follow up post……. REINVENTING OUTDOOR LIVING…..THE NEW OUTDOOR EXPERIENCE
As our lives are constantly changing, we, as humans, must find creative ways to adapt to the world around us. Now more than ever, that has become an understatement as all of us are looking for new ways to enhance our daily lives, especially in the midst of this global pandemic. Many long for a sophisticated outdoor experience that leads to a relaxed environment close to home. For the last 10 years, decks have become a focal point for many as they look to make changes to their homes. Major remodeling projects are just as important outside as they are inside. Even TV producers have gotten into the game by focusing new shows that highlight the outdoor experience such as “Inside Out” and “Backyard Takeover”. Furnishing companies, at all price levels, have also invested heavily into the outdoor space by creating their own special divisions dedicated to outdoor living. This allows one to connect with nature and reawakens our soul to a more peaceful environment, which is especially needed after spending so much time on our electronic devices. “Wellness” and “mindfulness” have become key terms in today’s fast paced society. Now, it is time to think about ways to enhance our own living spaces, whether inside or out! The experienced design team at WSMD can do both!
