Home visit: Take the party outside


You’ve planned an indoor party and suddenly the sun comes out so take your living room outside! Textiles and small pieces of furniture are great for making your outdoor space feel more cosy, and they’re easy to bring in at the end of the night.

Take color outside

“Color-blocking, using opposite colors to pair them together to make complementary color combinations is a really effective way to make your outdoor space look like a room, and textiles are the easiest way to do that,” says designer Katie Phillips. Even if the sun comes out mid-party, everyone can just grab a cushion each and head outside. Her KUNGSHOLMEN stool and chair can be left outside all year round, and the small tray table and lanterns are light enough to carry outside just for the evening. “We use our terrace as an extension of our living room whenever the weather is good,” says Katie. “We can just throw the sliding doors open and invite twice the number of people!”
