10 Ways: To Style Your Backyard With A Coastal Touch
1. Use of space.
This coastal, tropical backyard is a great design example for use of space and fitting it all in. It has a dining area, lounge, relaxing and conversation space.
2. Conversation spots.
Making areas dedicated for sparking comfortable conversation outdoors is brilliant. This is a stylish coastal conversation area with comfy low upholstered lounge chairs.
3. Reading and relaxation areas.
Creating a space for reading or relaxation under a tree or tucked away from the house gives you reason to retreat to the backyard.
4. Garden elements.
Plants don't just belong in the ground. Wall gardens or shelf gardens are a stylish way to decorate a bare wall or spice up a space.
5. Built in seating.
If you have a wall that surrounds your backyard take full advantage of your space by building seating off the wall giving you more room for entertaining.
This seating is stylish and functional.
6. Create backyard living rooms.
7. Family & pet friendly spaces.
Don't strive for perfection and forget to make a place for Fido and the kids. Coastal spaces are best when worn, weathered and slipcovered.
