Say you want to create an outdoor living area. Don’t hesitate to use your living room furniture. One will chastise you for nicking the Kilim from your children’s room and certainly not for taking the old sofa out of the living room. We like to be close to our favourite objects and feel cosy, even outdoors, so try to create a space that is open to nature by playing with materials. Materials will simply blend in with the unworked or damaged floors, lawns and sand of your terrace. Consider recreating a place for walking barefoot, a place where people are completely in tune with nature and would love to lounge about for hours on end, on furniture that will age with time, under the stars.
