Summers are here and Indian summers are here to stay. Days and nights, staying inside to protect us from summer heat takes its own toll in our mind and body. AC and fans surely brings in respite from heat but we humans crave for more. After all we too are living things and need our daily dose of fresh air and energy. Isn’t it? Let’s get out of the forced confinement and spend evenings with family and friends in your pleasant terrace breathing in fresh air and soaking in the cool evening breeze gently brushing you to rejuvenate you. Let’s dive in and get some amazing terrace ideas to enjoy the summers while it is still here and eagerly wait for monsoon to soak it away!
The smoothness of lighted stone wall, pergola helping the flowery climbers in their climb, long bamboo shoots protecting the privacy, diffused lighting from pendant lamps and hidden lamps and then the comfortable cane sofa with red covers; evenings spent with family here will become more pleasant in this beautiful atmosphere.
If the view from terrace is breath taking, harness it and bring it to your doorstep. Glass railing doesn’t obstruct the view of the skyline. Dive in the comfortable rattan chairs or sit in the high chairs near the small bar; but don’t forget to soak in the beauty of nature.
Sometimes the impact of simplicity is more powerful. There is nothing elaborate here, just a huge umbrella brighten with soothing yellow light, simple table and chairs, candles for romantic touch and then the openness of space and nature welcoming you and your family with open arms.
Get out on the other side of the door and enjoy the coolness of nature’s air conditioner touching your mind and soul. Wooden floor, comfortable garden chairs and then indirect lighting filtering from inside and from hidden source is making the ambiance romantic.
It’s almost a bed with pergola kept under the open sky to relax and enjoy the pleasant evenings in regal style or in the way you did in your childhood when visiting your quaint ancestral homes. Keep the lights dim and relive the memories.
Nothing can be more cooling and soothing than sound of water in hot summer evenings. All you need now is just a couple of chairs or just sit on the clean wooden floor and enjoy the family time with music being played in the background by the fountain.
Soak in the coolness of pleasant evenings in a serene environment dominated by white and complemented by greenery of the nature.
