As summer settles in, you don’t want to waste an extra moment indoors – give me relaxing on your veranda or patio in the sunshine, spending time with friends and family during those warm summer nights every time.
To make your outdoor space more inviting, here are some ideas on how to “boho-up” your outdoor space.
Sometimes the best thing to do is to hang out (quite literally) and unwind. What better place to do so than in a hammock? The soft fabric envelopes your body, making it the most comfortable hanging out spot after a busy day or lazing on a Sunday afternoon.
My favourite is the colorful woven hammock made by empowering the talent of local native artisans of Yucatan, Mexico for Warimba. This is where the hammock originates from – it has been a fundamental element of comfort and sleep for many centuries. The first hammocks were woven from the bark of a tree called “hamack”, sparking an innovation in rest and relaxation. Mayan hammocks are a beautiful artisanal expression and they are also the most comfortable place to relax, meditate, read a book and enjoy nature. Take a look at warimbapeople.com, I am sure you will love them.
Of course, many tips from our last blog post apply to the patio as well. For example, why not turn your relaxing outdoor space into a mini jungle, with the help of your favourite plants?

For furniture, this is where wood-crafted items are best suited – be it woven wooden or rattan furniture or hand-carved stools and ornamental coffee tables.

Why not get creative and make your own furniture out of wooden pallets? Take a look at these incredible and innovative wooden pallet table and sofa designs. The timber pallets are very easy to find and may be used for any cause whether to make an ornament or to make furnishings from it.
Don´t forget to complement the strength of wood with the softness of textile and numerous cushions to add the texture. Colourful cheerfulness can be added with vibrant furniture, materials and real flowers!
Another great idea is to use a surfboard as decoration (when it’s not being used). Reminiscent of a tribal shield, your carefully chosen friend can add a nice touch to your patio.

The evening does not necessarily mean you need to head indoors. Just add some cozy lighting on the patio and enjoy the warm summer nights with friends.
