These Indoor/Outdoor Spaces Will Give You Instant Vacation Vibes

Outside, but make it inside.

By Chanel Dror

When the comfort of indoor furniture meets the magic of a summer breeze, it’s a beautiful thing. That’s why this time of year, you can find us with doors wide open at just about any given time. The perfect place to lounge — margarita or rosé in hand — is one where the indoors flow seamlessly into the outside world, and the two become one. Thanks to the popularity of open concept living, it’s not hard to find spots that hit that mark, and we’ve featured quite a few inspirational spaces here on Camille Styles that are giving me all the summery feels. Scroll for a few that’ll have you rethinking your next home renovation, or tropical destination.
