It seems like you may have an idea of how to answer your own question, by posting this photo.

This space creates a smooth transition with the floor to ceiling windows as a focal point. Also, in this case, whatever flooring material was used on the exterior area must blend well with the interior wood floor. If there is a stark contrast between the two, the transition will be harsh.

I also wouldn't say this space is perfectly smooth in terms of transition. Some of the color and product choices made, in particular the rugs and the coffee table, disturb the visual flow which is innate in this architecture. There are too many very different color themes and patterns going on. If I were changing a few things about this space, with the transition in mind, I would choose a lighter rug that compliments the black and white theme going on. As far as the coffee table in this photo, I would choose something darker, maybe black or dark gray. Also, choosing similar light fixtures on the interior as well as the exterior help to relate the areas to one another.

Understandably not every home has such amazing windows. So, a good way to create a smooth transition is to bring some of the outdoor in. With indoor plants and maybe a terrarium sitting on the coffee table, the room will blend much nicer with some green.

I agree with above, repeat design elements in the transition space outside and keep the window treatments restrained, keeping the focus on the outdoor view. I have plants in my dining room that opens onto my outdoor space, I use similar colors outside.
