Your next getaway might just be hiding in plain sight. Inject a tropical vibe into your outdoors by following these 5 ways.
If you have a narrow pathway, inject life into it with stepping stones, loose pebbles, green moss carpet, and an outdoor seating area. Instead of a drab walkway, you’ll have a pathway that gives an intimate touch to what was once a mere passers-by area.
Turn your outdoors into your next getaway destination by invoking the tropical vibe. Favor plants with loud prints and towering ferns which sway to the beat of the wind. Either planted in place or in pots, you’ll have a cleaner, greener outdoor environment that evokes a sense of zen.
Maximize your outdoor space by putting a set of furniture fit for your needs. Whether it’s an outdoor living room or a dining room, pick a specific function for the room and a single furniture set to serve your needs. This maximizes the space and still gives the spacious look for your outdoors. If, however, your space allows for both or more furniture sets, feel free to organize it in a way that suits your design style and needs.
Use natural woven furniture like rattan-based ones which is totally in vogue this 2018. But don’t be stuck with rattan. Explore other woven materials used for outdoor furniture such as abaca, cane and seagrass. Aside from its naturally elegant style, these woven furniture are made sturdy and designed to age gracefully against harmful weather elements.
Choose Fab Fabrics
Aside from your woven furniture, accessorize with artisan-made pieces. From fabrics to bowls and rugs, have a more meaningful design to your outdoor style with these accessories made with love, hailing from a culture you admire. Just make sure to buy pieces from fair trade organizations making significant impact in the lives of their artisans.
