Tropical Dream | real living magazine
Amart Furniture is excited to partner with stylist Jackie Brown to bring you the latest looks for your home with the Smart Styling series. In the December edition, Jackie demonstrates how to create a tropical dream in your outdoor living area. On this page, you’ll find the products she used to put together the nature-inspired look you see above.
Are you ready to entertain guests in a relaxing outdoor oasis? For Jackie, a comfortable, weather-resistant lounge setting is the most important feature in any outdoor living area. Create tropical flair by choosing a setting that reflects nature in woven materials, like the Mediterranean 4-piece lounge setting pictured above. If you have the space available, add some other seating options, like the fun Granada hanging chair and colourful sun chairs – the kids will love having a chair to swing in!
When it comes to accessorising, Jackie suggests reflecting nature through tropical greens. Simply cluster groups of plants in corners to create a defined relaxation zone. The Yucca 60cm plant, the Sunny grassy bowl and the Bamboo tree are all perfect choices when it comes to creating a variety of heights and textures throughout the space. Textiles should also be fresh, with light, earthy hues. The Rainforest cushion is a great addition to any outdoor lounge, and a natural rug like the Natural Jute handmade rug will tie the entire tropical theme together.
Jackie's top tips for styling a tropical outdoor living area on a budget:
- If you don’t have any outdoor cushions, don’t fret! Simply use your indoor ones and bring them back inside later on. Try to keep them out of the sun if possible.
- Pop leaves and flowers from your garden into trendy bottles and vases like those from the Spanish recycled glassware range. Place your bottles and vases on a tray and this will create a unique centrepiece on any coffee table.
