Summer terrace decoration

The mercury continues to rise and outdoor areas become the protagonists of the decoration. It’s nice to enjoy leisure time on summer terraces, especially if water and paradisiacal views are part of the scenery. There is no need, however, for exotic environments to make the most of the outdoors. The right interior design is enough to achieve dream spaces. To help you with this purpose we summarize some tips to give a summer look to the terrace – whether of an establishment or a house.

Natural inspiration

The decoration of summer terraces is often inspired by nature. Wood, wicker, bamboo, rattan or stone are recurrent in exteriors, as they evoke natural landscapes. Plants and water – be it a pool or a fountain – also help to create a cozy, natural environment. We also recommend avoiding stridency. Simplicity is the best ally of the summer season, when less is more is especially relevant.

Decorative styles

Chill-out, Ibizan, lounge and Mediterranean décor triumph on summer terraces. They are usually combined with a rustic touch. There are those who bet, however, to give them a zen or oriental air. Keep in mind that this year eclecticism is a trend in decorating, so it is not superfluous to combine several aesthetics without burdening the environment.

A refreshing space

Plants and vegetation in general, as well as pergolas and net curtains not only beautify the terrace, but also refresh it. If, fortunately, the outdoor area in question has a swimming pool, it should be used as the centerpiece of the decoration. Not in vain if there is something you want in summer is to cool off with a good dip.

Furniture

Furniture for summer terrace decoration should combine three ingredients: comfort, simplicity and elegance. The soft and minimalist lines of the chill out or Ibizan style furniture are ideal for terraces located in coastal areas or with views. The cocktail terraces, queens of the summer nights, usually bet on lounge type furniture. Households often opt for

Mediterranean-inspired furniture with a rustic touch, as it creates a unique cozy atmosphere for the summer season.

The sun loungers, hammocks and custom-made mattresses -especially if there is a swimming pool nearby- are very practical and comfortable for sunbathing, and are also a hallmark of the terraces.

Colors

The color par excellence of summer terraces is usually white. The tones of natural inspiration, evoking the sea and the sand -such as white, blue or earth colors- typical of the Mediterranean style work very well to give a summery air to the terrace.
