The elements are the same, but the configuration changes. Look at everything that unfolds in terms of terraces and gardens trends this season so that your moments of leisure outdoors are of quality.
It is nothing new that the poufs are an attractive and practical element, both indoors and on terraces. But precisely for the latter, the poufs reinvent themselves and present themselves in new materials that cope with inclement weather (excess heat, summer rains…) And all this, without detracting one iota from the design charm. In the image, Soft poufs, by Paola Lenti.
Crafts are on the rise, as events such as the Loewe Craft Priz e demonstrate. Every year, the jury receives a good number of works from young artists who return to work with their hands. The result is unique items that, incorporated into the decoration of the house, make it look prettier than ever. The jugs that were used in the past to fetch water and which have become an icon thanks to Almodóvar’s films, are eager to return to give your terrace that I don’t know what was missing. Botijos by Carlo Jiménez.
The design appears on the terrace with carpets like this one by Patricia Urquiola for GAN. A decorative element traditionally so rooted in the house and in the winter, it is revealed to decorate the terrace and in summer. A simple way to turn the ‘outdoor space’ into a cozy dining room, sophisticated and comfortable at the same time.
Vertical gardens grow in number and height on contemporary terraces. Although, yes, before opting for one, we recommend that you put yourself in the hands of a specialist: it is a worthwhile investment. The vertical gardens light bland walls and give that extra vegetation that your terrace is crying out for. And if you think they are bland, or that they only admit one type of vegetation, consult your specialist and you will see that, in a matter of vertical gardens, the possibilities are endless.
When night begins to fall and we feel like continuing to enjoy our outdoor space, what better than to have some lanterns. They light dinners, conversations, drinks… They are a good ally. Also, space is not an excuse. If you have a small terrace, with two lanterns you can create a new atmosphere. And, if you have more meters, you can choose to make a path or put one next to each large planter. You will shine!
In terms of plant pots, you have a world to discover! Look how good these from Gandía Blasco are for your garden. The planters are the ideal complement. Combine them with the furniture and you will succeed. If the chairs are metal, opt for this finish as well and if they are made of wood, choose clay models. Thus you will find harmony.
Hanging chairs, swings… make your garden a special place. If children enjoy swinging, why shouldn’t adults have the same spirit? The Maia chair by Kettal is a fantastic example of how to incorporate this type of furniture into your garden. Fun and classy, a lethal combination!
Rivers of ink have been written about the virtues of wood. Well, we believe that they are not enough. The quintessential material also works outside the home, creating cozy, comfortable… and modern environments! because this material is always current. If you want to follow the latest trends, go for natural finishes that show rich imperfections. But you will also shine if you bet on more traditional models. Regarding wood, any option is good!
We are tired of hearing it… The details are what give the spaces the personality. And still, we are still determined to talk exclusively about large pieces of furniture. From here, we break a lance in favor of small pieces of furniture, a floor lamp, a nightstand… that adorn without disturbing, that help without being noticed. They continue to be essential to design a space that you want to return to, one of those that are imprinted on the retina.
It is a resource that, increasingly, has the approval of architects and designers. Pergolas are a decorative resource on the rise. Present in the most sophisticated environments, but also in the most informal, they have that transversal character that makes them fit in any situation. You just have to find the one that best suits your terrace or garden and start enjoying the summer days outdoors without excess sun becoming a problem.
Pantone spoke up and said that classic blue would be the color of the year. A tone that would convey serenity and comfort. Although the choice raised the eyebrows of other color specialists, the truth is that Pantone could not be more correct. In troubled times, nothing better than clinging to the classics. Painting your terrace blue will remind you of summers on the beach, the days outdoors with a clear sky… What better setting!
The metallic details in black color give your terrace or garden the transgressor point you need. Between bucolic flowers and lanterns, introduce an element of these characteristics and you will be giving texture to the space. And character. Of course, this type of furniture needs a good conservation, if you do not want them to rust. If so, they could become your worst nightmare.
