The beautiful wooden piece of furniture like a satie of a long sofa will be apt to keep in the terrace decorated with the colorful cushions and vases. The tiled walls and the floors add a class to it.

Having a rooftop or a terrace garden luncheon is one amazingly wonderful moment with family. One enjoys it more with the beautiful furniture and the nature’s delight.

A rustic wooden dining table with an unfinished and raw look gives a natural beauty to it. Simple chairs around complete the overall look.

Shades From The Sunlight

Having a shade from sun and the immense light in the bright beautiful morning is important if you want to sit close to mother nature for a longer duration. Spending some beautiful mornings in the open leaves one refreshed and energized. Make some beautiful wooden shades with a simple standing-on-the-legs structure. It provides a definition to the décor of the terrace garden and also brings some relaxation from the direct sunlight. Leaving it as it is in the wood texture gives it a old rustic look that enhances the beauty of it.
