Bringing indoors and outdoors together, with P. Allen Smith

During the past several weeks, we’ve shared a series of videos featuring designer P. Allen Smith. Today we’re going to take a look at some of Smith’s techniques for bringing the beauty of the outdoors in.

Smith takes us on a tour of his Garden Home Retreat, showing some of his favorite spaces and how they are designed to show off and accentuate the best of the outdoors in through the use of windows and doors. A key tip: Think of your windows as an opportunity not just to let in fresh air and light but as a way to frame specific views of the outdoors.

Watch the short video above for more, or check out our YouTube channel for other videos from Smith.
