In vogue this year, outdoor spaces are all about natural minerals, retro-inspired style, cool soothing colors, and (the number one trend) indoor setups outside. A hot commodity to nail down this style is to invest in an outdoor rug to pull it all together. “The backyard/porch has truly become an extension of your indoor space,” says Melissa Simon, Public Relations Manager at Pier 1 Imports.
