Creating a Modern Outdoor Living Space
Part 1: Modern Outdoor Lounges
When the winter blues are getting you down and your cabin fever is rising, there’s one sure cure for the problem…well, okay, two, but if you can’t take a trip to a sunny tropical isle right now, the next best thing is planning an exotic outdoor getaway…right in your own backyard.
Many people are choosing to spend more time at home these days and manufacturers are making it easy for them by providing beautiful, versatile outdoor pieces to help you turn your yard into a vacation spot.
One of the hottest items for your backyard this summer is an outdoor bed. Whether you place it next to the pool or find a secluded corner to tuck it away in, an outdoor bed not only adds a feeling of exotic luxury to your space, it makes the perfect spot to curl up and enjoy the breeze with a good book, take a summertime siesta or have a romantic rendezvous. There are a variety of styles available to help create just the feel you want in your own little piece of paradise.
Whether you choose an outdoor bed built for two, complete with gauzy drapes, or a contemporary daybed, you won’t be able to resist spending time lounging in your new favorite place. Just add a pineapple drink with a cute little umbrella in it and you’ll feel like you’re at a tropical resort. Don’t be surprised if this piece turns into one of the outdoor items you use most often.
Remember the old-fashioned hammock in Grandpa’s backyard? Well, hammocks have come into the 21st century. You don’t even have to have two trees to tie them up anymore. Now you can get free standing hammocks that range from the basic to the ultra luxurious, or choose a hammock chair for small spaces. Either option delivers an irresistible urge to kick back and relax..
