Using Photo Art to Spruce Up Outdoor Spaces | Outdoor Decorating 2018

In good weather, your patio or balcony can be an extra room in your house if you put in that extra effort towards making it a space that’s cozy and comfortable, and above all, personal.

One great way to do this is to use some of your beloved photos in your outdoors decorating, made possible by new ways of printing digital images on wood or metal so it can withstand the elements and last for years to come.

A Splash of Color

Go panoramic to show off that epic landscape shot from your last international trip. We’ve opted to print this outdoor piece on metal for a few reasons. First, for a plain looking deck, the color-infused aluminum adds luminosity to an otherwise dull cement wall. Second, it’s weatherproof! We can leave it out all year long without fear of rust or warping.

Natural Tones

For the country dwellers out there, sprucing up an old barn with a new coat of stain can really add attractiveness to your property. In this case, we’ve opted to finish off this project with a simple decor accent using an old family photo printed on maple wood. This piece is great because it keeps the natural appeal of the shed door while shielding it from the elements using a special coating.

Tea Time Visuals

Entertaining in the Autumn is the perfect time to impress friends with photo books from your summer vacation or wedding. Perfect for a conversation piece over outdoor tea and hors d’oeuvres. Take advantage of those last days of nice weather before the weather turns. And while not waterproof, photo books are great for company as long as you remember to take them back inside.
