With the end of summer in sight, you may think you will be using your luxury outdoor living room less. But, with a bit cooler weather on the way, the opposite should be true. In fact, this fall is the perfect time to plan a staycation in your backyard resort. Here are a few suggestions for turning your outdoor space into a staycation resort made for soothing R&R.
Start with Seating
What differentiates a typical backyard from the luxury outdoor space at a high-end resort? Start with seating. Vacation resorts get seating just right by offering two main differences: the types of seats and how they are arranged.
In your backyard staycation resort, opt for the unexpected and make sure each seating piece is designed with good looks and plump, plush, oh-so-comfortable cushions. For example, this Curve Chaise Lounge by Tropitone provides an interesting and sexy profile sure to draw the eye to its simple, yet sensuous lines. This is exactly the type of seat you would expect to find at a luxury resort.
The Kantan Brass Rocker is another excellent choice. It is just as gorgeous as it is ergonomically designed. A pair of these brass rockers is sure to become the focal point of your backyard landscape.
The Right Position
Once you’ve got ultra-comfortable seats in place, be sure to position them to best take advantage of the scenery. In your luxury backyard staycation resort, that might mean creating a seating arrangement that faces the pool. If you have a view of the ocean, that would be the obvious choice, but even if you can see killer sunrises or sunsets, then your chairs and lounges should at least be movable to take advantage of the colorful display.
Speaking of Pools…
Where do you most enjoy hanging out in your luxury outdoor living room? Chances are it’s the swimming pool. What most resorts get right about designing the space around the pool is adding both visual interest and lots of accessories.
The number one furnishing necessary for a resort-style pool is a cabana. This is the one addition to the area around your swimming pool that really sets the space apart. Available in several different styles, each of our cabanas features durable fabric that lends itself to sensuous draping and provides intimate privacy. Furnish the cabana with an expansive lounge chair and lots of pillows that invite leaning back and relaxing with an icy beverage and a good book.
Just Add Shade
Decorative shade structures are another must-have around your staycation resort. When it comes to an umbrella that is a real show-stopper in terms of designs, it is hard to beat the gorgeous TUUCI Ocean Master MAX Manta Cantilever. It combines a unique design reminiscent of the span of a manta ray gliding through the ocean with ultimate shade coverage.
Don’t forget about the big impact small accessories can make, as well. A basket of rolled-up towels poolside, potted flowers, outdoor lanterns and a stack of fluffy throws next to the fire pit are all welcome additions that are sure to remind you of a resort. As the weather gets cooler, consider adding colorful throw rugs to keep your toes toasty.
Your backyard can easily become a staycation resort by adding the right furnishings and accessories then sitting back and enjoying the fruits of your labor.
