10 ideas to decorate your terrace

terraza

In today’s post we want to propose how to decorate your terrace, but always giving it a personal and special touch.

 

Now the good weather arrives and since we cannot leave the house we start thinking about going out on the terrace. Or for example preparing a dinner in a perfect environment, reading a book, listening to music, sunbathing or going out to finish office work.

 

As advice we say, the best decoration is the one that each one gives their personal touch and the one that makes us feel comfortable and relaxed. For this, we have to have clear ideas and know the different alternatives that the market offers us to put them into practice.

For this we leave you 10 ideas to decorate your terrace, whatever its size and shape.

 

We must emphasize that in the decoration of terraces, the size and the shape influence, a lot!

 

Get the most of your terrace with the following ideas:

 

 

1.THINKING VERTICALLY

 

When a terrace is small and to gain space, the best way to decorate the terrace with plants is to take advantage of the walls. We can put pots and planters that are held in the paneling.

 

 

2.INCLUDE FLOWERS OR PLANTS

 

Regardless of the size we can include anything or ornament that we like and bring a personal charm, that makes our terrace or balcony look good, for example, the details with flowers are always a success.

 

Or any type of plants, for us they are the perfect complement on any terrace or balcony, whatever their style. If you want to create an exotic effect, place potted varieties around the dining room or living room. When you water them, you will have a pleasant feeling of freshness.

3.A BAR

 

Whatever your large terrace is, it will always fit a wooden bar or the material that you want. A small bar next to the railing can serve you for breakfast or a drink overlooking the street.

 

4.FOLDING FURNITURE

 

Use a folding table and chairs, so you will not take away space when you are not using them and you can fold your furniture in bad weather.

 

5.AN ARMCHAIR AND A COFFEE IN THE SUN …

 

We recommend putting a wicker chair and a side table will be more than enough to enjoy, for example, the morning sun while having coffee and reading the newspaper.

 

6.HAMMOCK

 

If your deck has more than one wall, try putting a hammock in one corner. It is a super comfortable and will seem ideal for sunbathing or taking a nap in the cool. Complete the corner with a pair tables in bright colors.

 

 

 7.PROTECTION SYSTEMS

 

This option is important to be able to enjoy your space even in the sunny hours, do not forget the shade systems: a pergola, a generously sized umbrella or an awning. The best option is a folding model; so you can change the temperature whenever you want.

 

A good idea that we recommend is to create a space with a table and a couple of chairs that will allow you to carry out any activity outdoors and add a nice umbrella in a color similar to that of furniture. You can also combine it with some colored cushions to give it a little personality and not be so minimalist. We are also in favor of decorating it with plants around it. Plants will make it look like a cooler space.

8.BOHO CHIC STYLE

 

Do you like ethnic style? Right now it is a trend and we have also thought about this type of style. Use geometric figure rugs, wicker furniture and ethnic patterned cushions and create a cute boho-style terrace. Don’t forget to add decorative stained glass elements.

 

 

9.TEXTILES, ALWAYS WITH COLORS THAT YOU LIKE

 

A simple way to decorate a terrace and look like a totally different one is to simply change the textiles. From iLuxenio we recommend including cushions in trendy colors or patterns, and rugs made or Berber-style fibers.

 

10.WOOD, BAMBOO, WICKER OR SYNTHETIC FIBERS

 

And finally another great idea is to include outdoor furniture made with natural materials such as wood or vegetable fibers such as wicker, rattan or jute.

 

The good thing about this type of furniture is that it is timeless and gives a cozy and natural touch to the environment. Make sure when buying that the furniture is suitable for outdoors so that it does not spoil and is kept in the best condition.

Cecilia Gómez, interior decoration

Interior decoration

When we talk about interior decoration, it is usual to think that we are referring exclusively to the house’s aesthetic. However, this goes far beyond. Beauty can be, for example, a synonym of order. It is also a way to plan the distribution of spaces, an aid to take a better advantage of them and to make the most of them. The interior atmosphere of our home is fundamental for human’s well-being .

Therefore, we can’t be satisfied just by the cover of decoration’s concept. If all elements that have been chosen are those that best suit you, are placed in a perfect location and are a part of a whole, it will be more likely that your house becomes more and more as your initial idea and begins to become the home of your dreams. And this is the philosophy of today’s post lead: the firm Cecilia Gómez.

Our participation in Salón Inmobiliario internacional de Madrid (SIMA) a few months ago, left us great experiences. The biggest Real Estate event celebrated in our country, brought together developers, builders, interior decoration shops, real estate agencies, credit institutions and all kinds of companies that have a direct contact with the industry.

During our stay there, we had the chance to know many brands from all sectors mentioned before. Due to the proximity to our stand, and so because of the great treatment that they gave to the exhibitors and visitors, and mainly for the quality of their materials and service, one of the best experiences that we took from SIMA was to meet Cecilia Gómez and her team.

So, on today’s post about interior decoration, we would like to dedicate a space to talk about them.

Cecilia Gómez is a family business headed by a mother and her daughter. Curiously, with the name of her daughter, which is Cecilia Gómez, the mother started in the world of interior decoration. Her current experience added to Cecilia’s, who grew up and learned from the best teacher —between projects of flats and refurbishments to be trained later as an interior’s architect— has made of the brand one of the leaders in the region of Madrid and also at national level.

In its aim to satisfy their clients, they care about their specific needs. With a detailed knowledge of the market, the firm offers you the opportunity to achieve a perfect decoration, just as you imagined it. The decoration adapts to your personality and your daily habits. Their slogan “Turn your projects into reality”, couldn’t be closer to this idea.

They are specialized in interior decoration of all kind of spaces, ranging from flats to detached houses going through hotels and offices. Besides, they complete a hundred of works per year.

Another of their most remarkable activities is the home staging:

In this way, they are perfectly coordinated with developers to offer to the client the possibility to visit show flats completely decorated. Enjoy absolutely of a real staging is a plus when buying a home. And with Cecilia Gómez, you can even apply the design that you have seen before to our own house.

In relation to the materials they use, although they work with different elements, from national and international manufacturers, they don’t hide their preference by the accessories, the wallpapers and the fabrics.

One of the keys of success of Cecilia Gómez is the professional team that it has. It its composed not only by decorators but also by experts assemblers, cabinet makers, carpenters, furniture restorers, graphics specialists and even builders. Besides, they have their own workshops in upholstering and production. However, and depending on the characteristics of the different projects they made, they also collaborate with other companies of the construction industry, which provides a quality result, thanks to the integral development of the process.
