Interior designer Rebecca Johnston has been serving the Los Angeles area since 2007. Her firm, RJohnston Interiors, draws inspiration from classical design elements and integrates them into modern spaces. The Mediterranean Los Angeles patio (photo above) is a prime example of this approach: it’s an eclectic, luxurious space fit for enjoyment in any season. Since her firm is located in Southern California, a big part of Johnston’s business is designing for outdoor living. Read on to get her thoughts on essential accents for outdoor spaces and how infrared patio heaters seem to keep homeowners more comfortable outdoors than traditional models.
Winter weather doesn’t have to put your restaurant’s outdoor patio or rooftop dining on hiatus until the warmer months. Adding design-friendly Infratech heaters can offer your guests more seating options while helping you get more nights of use from your outdoor dining areas. Our heaters keep outdoor seating open, which can help lead to a boost in sales.
