Bring the Beach Home

Written by creatingyourspace on . Posted in Outdoor

This inviting beach scene begs you to sit down with a cool drink and enjoy the view. The sandy surface, natural furniture and splash of bright colors makes this an inviting place to spend time.

If you’re not lucky enough to live near a beach, you can create some aspects of this scene in your own back yard. Let’s take a look at a few design decisions that can produce a patio with some of the best features of this beach.

To start, a natural flooring choice for the patio provides a hint of a beach feel. This rectangular travertine block has the soft tones of sand along with the benefits of a beautiful and solid surface for the patio furniture.

The next step requires selecting natural wood patio furniture. Unlike the rough-edged twig chairs and tables on the beach, this oiled teak is reminiscent of the beach but with a much sleeker look. The mosaic design on the table echoes the feel of a shell and complements the stone floor.

Finally, pillows in red, yellow and green take the place of the flags on the beach. A few splashes of color warm up the patio and set the stage for entertaining.

What else would make this space resemble the beach scene? Add some candles and outdoor light strings for evening use and you’re ready to go. You’re ready for a beach-style party even if you’re miles from the shore.
