Anne Rue Interiors: Creating Inviting Summer Outdoor Spaces

By Anne Rue of Anne Rue Interiors

Bring the Indoors Outside

Summer is upon us, making it the ideal time to update your outdoor spaces to accommodate living, relaxing, and entertaining. This season means warmer weather, longer days, and sipping chilled rosé under the sunset. From indoor-inspired outdoor living to natural accents to mid-century simplicity, we’ll be covering the top three outdoor design trends of 2017 and how you can achieve the look.

   

            1. Creating a seamless transition from interior living to outdoor spaces can be attained with a few easy additions. Outdoor rugs, accessories, and eye-catching, decorative pillows are a surefire way to make your backyard haven more homey; all of which are also the perfect caveat for an accent color. As a designer, it is may goal to transform every room into a sanctuary; livable, clean, and inspiring. Planters, ottomans, decorative lighting, wall art, and patterned pillows help me accomplish just that. These accessories certainly do not have to boast a hefty price tag. Your local home goods store is sure to carry collections that expertly combine comfort, durability, and natural materials.

            2. Natural materials are monopolizing the interior design scene as of late. We, as a society, are turning our focus to more environmentally-conscious practices and designs. Unpolished, unfinished wood, herb garden walls, focal point edibles, and raw materials are making it easier than ever to live sustainability while also living inspired. Rugged stone accents, live edge tables, wooden pergolas, and concrete slabs speak to an earthy, yet updated living space - transforming your backyard into your own personal resort.

            3. One of the most aesthetically and energetically pleasing aspects of these new trends is their calming, mid-century-esque simplicity. The days of elaborate floral landscaping, complete with colonial-style bird baths and rock gardens are (thankfully) over. Our focus has shifted to open, airy spaces, embodying the phrase “less is more.” Sleek, rustic furniture pieces are a great way to bring your porch, patio, or pool deck back to life. As this trend continues to take root, tracking down mid-century seating will be as easy as a trip to your local super store.

            Updating your backyard living space shouldn’t take away from the time you spend enjoying it, which is why this concise guide to achieving the current outdoor trends is so valuable! Indoor-inspired comfort, earthy accents, and clean, modern lines will create the richest and most durable outdoor oasis, so that every moment spent in the comfort of your own home feels like an endless Summer vacation.

Lake Conway Sandbar

Although it's well-known to Conway residents, this weekly lake party is somewhat of a secret to the rest of Central Florida. Each weekend hundreds of boats gather on the sandbar to eat, drink and "waste" the day away basking in the Florida sun. Someone always supplies the music and there's no shortage of good times. Get away from the crowd for a bit and wake board, wake skate or tube on the Conway Chain. Don't have a boat to get there? Paddle board, canoe, float or even swim out!

Check out the sandbar on Lake Conway every weekend.

Something's Brewing in Central Florida

This ones not for you, wine snobs. Check out a few of the coolest places around town to grab a "cold one."

Ocean Sun Brewery

There are quite a few details about this brewery that make it unique. For instance, it's BYOF (bring your own food) option or welcoming man's best (furry) friend to pull up a chair at their inside tables. This place proves to be rather hospitable when it comes to making you feel comfortable. Ocean Sun produces traditional ales and lagers, but sometimes they'll serve up a twist like their Big Buchi - a stout that's deep, rich and chocolately, topped with espresso. If you're not a frequent beer guzzler, not to worry. The spot arms you with a beer guide for pairing suggestions to satisfy your thirsty palate. If all this drinking makes you hungry and you forgot to BYOF you can choose from their menu of fresh local food while you enjoy their live entertainment. Have brewing skills of your own? While you're there inquire about becoming a guest brewer!

Orlando Brewing Company

This Orlando hangout has been around for a while, but there are probably some things you didn't know - like how they are the only U.S.D.A. certified organic brewery south of Vermont and east of Colorado, or that their home brews can be found in over 500 locations across the state of Florida. They also follow what is called "the Reinheitsgebot," the German Purity Law of 1516 which decreed that beers should only be brewed with four ingredients: water, hops, yeast and malted barely with no adjuncts or additives - in other words organic. Graeme Lay is their Brewmaster and while he is very strict on following the Reinheitsgebot, 4 times a year he releases a beer that violates the law which they have appropriately dubbed "The Violator Series."  Having a party? Pick up a 6-pack or even a keg of their in-house brews!

Orlando Brewing is located at 1301 Atlanta Ave, Orlando, FL 32806
