How to Create An Island Escape In Your Backyard
Have you ever experienced an island paradise? If so, think back to what you found most memorable. Was it the warm blue water, swaying palm trees, sandy beaches, searching for shells, tropical drinks or island music? Our Island Escape trend is here with tropical furniture that will help you recreate that feeling in your own backyard!
When you’re designing the perfect backyard island escape, think about your color scheme. For a vibrant tropical color scheme choose vivid colors like; aqua, pink, lime and orange. For a subtle color scheme, look at softer shades such as white, sand, salmon, lemon, moss and light blue. Don’t be afraid to step out of your comfort zone.
Most folks will agree it’s fun to decorate your interior living space and, decorating your outdoor space can be just as enjoyable. Look for items created just for the outdoors. Outdoor rated string lights, table lamps and floor lamps look great and they provide much needed night time light. An advantage of using portable lighting is that you don’t need to hire an electrician to install it. Outdoor clocks have a dual purpose, keeping track of the time and adding style to your retreat. Consider adding sculptures, arches and topiaries for a touch of elegance.
Don’t forget the fun! Decorative planters, pots, vases, candle holders and fountains are beautiful accents to any backyard space. If you don’t have a pond but love the sound of moving water, why not invest in an outdoor fountain. Colorful containers make decorations and can house more than just plants.
Creating your very own island retreat starts with good-looking and comfortable outdoor weather-treated furniture and decor. An outdoor sofa or sectional with brightly colored cushions and an abundance of toss pillows will create a perfect spot for your family and friends kick back and relax.
