Creating the perfect outdoor nook with Hayley Andersen and Kyle Hunter
If you are looking for some garden ideas to make it your relaxing spot or the perfect place for your friends and family gatherings on sunny days, you are in the right place. Although there are many types of terrace, we find common characteristics in the terraces that leave us in awe.
1. Your garden has to match your lifestyle
First, you have to think about what are you going to use your terrace for and start making the most of it. Consider the space, the furniture and decoration that you already have and think about what you want to change up. If, for example, you have more sofas than what you need, you can use that space for a small table and chairs or a sun lounger.
2. Make it cozy and colorful
Cushions, cushions and… more cushions! They are the best addition to make your garden more comfortable and to introduce some colour and dimension. It’s the key to make it a welcoming and personal space.
3. The power of lighting
Use your garden also at night! Change the lunch for a glass of wine and the sun for room light, the moon, and the stars. Create a warm and relaxing setting with low brightness light bulbs. You can use an ambient light source, like a lamp, and turn it off once you finish your dinner. And, to go a step further, you could also light some candles to create a magic environment.
4. Decoration ideas for your terrace
When we think about decorating a terrace, plants are the first thing on our mind. No matter how small or artificial they are, they will make you feel in nature and they will help you chill out. Choose some plant pots to get a perfect look! And, if you still feel like there’s “something” special missing, add some outdoor rugs and decorative figures that match your style.
5. Your terrace, your rules
Spend as much time as you can on your terrace, enjoy it to the fullest. If something doesn’t feel right, change it. You’ll see how, little by little, it starts becoming your own slice of paradise.
