There is much talk recently, that the surrounding of your premises should be an extension of your interior. Advocates of stylistic harmony eagerly transfer the characteristic motifs outdoors. They are countered by enthusiasts of contrast who believe, that going out onto the terrace should feel like being in a different place.
The common trait of the abovementioned approaches is the pursuit of creating a unique space and, undoubtedly, those who do not wish to restrict their stylistic tastes indoors are right. It is obvious that the surrounding of your home should not drastically differ in terms of form from what is happening indoors and in the owners’ minds.
The time of a garden being equaled to a vegetable patch and a terrace resembling a small storage room is long gone. Today terraces, especially during the Summer season, stand on their own next to living rooms and fulfil similar functions. With the change of approach, there also came a change in the nature of arrangements – light, bland garden furniture was replaced by stable armchairs and comfortable sofas.
It should be soft, comfortable and cozy, which is why plaids and cushions of various colors, which will make morning coffee or evening meetings with friends a pleasure, are a welcome addition. It is unimportant, if we arrange the terrace applying the rule of cohesion or contract – it is important to do it with style.
