Last month at Las Vegas Market Designers Today Editor, Jane Dagmi, teamed up with Exterior Design Editor, Waynette Goodson, to address a hot new trend: the conjoining of interior design and exterior design.

Today’s architects draw blueprints incorporating the all-important 5th Room—the outdoor space. So interior designers must be prepared to design the home in its entirety, both inside—and out. Thus, they’re tasked with bringing the outdoors inside through the use of nature and natural elements. Then they must seamlessly transition their indoor aesthetic to the outdoor area. Jane and Waynette pulled out some of the top tips and tricks from working designers today to understand how they are bringing the natural world inside and introducing a true living experience outdoors.

Panelists included Justina BlakeneyRafael Kalichstein, Joshua Rose, Lori Paranjape, Waynette Goodson, Jane Dagmi and myself. Check out my top ten exterior design tips here and here.

Complimentary lunch was provided in the showroom following the presentation, and special gift bags were shared with those in attendance!  Thank you for having us OW Lee, Designers Today, Exterior Design and IMC.
