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.

The luxury in the textile sector. Discover the most chic fabrics

fabrics

The sector we are talking about today is one of the most important activity sectors in our country. The most prestigious brands in the world are divided into three sectors of activity, which are 56% of the textile sector; 28% cosmetic and personal hygiene products, and 16% luxury car brands.That is why this time we bring you a selection of the most chic fabrics on the market.

In Spain, the evolution of the textile sector has been marked by the globalization of the sector, this is due to the growth that has been registered in developing countries, especially Asian countries. Spanish companies, due to the change in the market, have reacted to face competition, allowing them to adjust to the sector.

The piece of cloth is the final product that is obtained once you work with fabrics, the raw material.

Clearly, the better the quality and exclusivity, the more luxurious is the obtained fabric, and the more expensive it will be. There are exquisite and special fabrics that have made their names in the sector thanks to the quality of the original fabric.

Obtaining the greatest possible luxury is the desire of the fabric manufacturing firms, which have also added ornaments such as natural pearls, or Swarovski crystals, and even some decorate these fabrics with diamonds or gold. As the Belgian house Scabal did, in its most exclusive fabric, the 100% vicuña wool.

Other fabric manufacturing houses have chosen to mix natural raw materials, and thus give rise to one of the most expensive fabrics in the world, such as that of a mixture of pashmina from North India, quiviut from Alaska and Andean vicuña itself.

Extreme proposals of fabrics that are based onone of these five materials, always natural:

Wool:

Synthetic wool is not the same as a natural animal wool. The most exclusive wool from around the world is vicuña. Its price can be around €3,500. Then there is the cashmere, which comes from the Pashmina goat, it come from the Himalayas, the mohair, fiber of the Angora goat (which is found in Ankara, capital of Turkey), the cervelt, which comes from a type of red deer from Scotland although it is mostly introduced from New Zealand. And the Qiviut, which is a musk ox wool, which comes from the Greenland goat breed and areas of Norway and Sweden.

The one that should be mentioned separately is the angora, which its use is prohibited by some fashion firms.

Silk:

This is the one that best breathes and maintains the freshness of the skin, it is characterized by its pleasant touch, thus being the favorite of many people. Its price varies in large quantity. The key to this fabric is in the manipulation of the filament especially, but also in its origin.

The producer in large quantities of silk is China, but some brands prefer Brazil. This is the case with Hermes, since it is more exclusive, because the workshops control the whole process, no intermediaries. The mikado, brocade, velvet or shantung, are the fabrics that give rise to silk.

Leather:

It is a luxury fabric when it has animal origins. It is a very valuable material for large fashion companies.

In addition to the mink one of the most popular leathers, they are also the chinchilla, the fox or the Russian cyber marten, which only inhabits the Russian wooded areas. One of the characteristics of leather is that as its color gets darker the price rises. For this reason, the blackest is the most valuable.

Its exclusivity is so great that, in 2015, Fendi presented a coat made with it. Its  value is over one million euros.

Linen:

This fabric has a history since it comes from ancient Egypt, where it was cultivated.

Next to cotton is the most luxurious and well-known plant based material. Its production is very expensive, but its qualities are many, which make it a fundamental fabric for the industry.

It is elegant, comfortable and adapts to all temperatures, since it is thermoregulable. Mostly it is used for pants, jackets or blouses.

The Irish are great linen manufacturers, since they have been producing the highest quality fabrics for years.

Cotton:

It is the most used material in the textile industry. There are very different quality spectrums when it comes to making garments. The useful part of the plant is the white fluff that grows around the seeds. Cotton grows in many parts of the world. However the climatic conditions and humidity for its development occur in Egypt. This country produces the best cotton in the world.

The Giza 45 fabric, originally from the Nile Delta, is considered the “Queen” of Egyptian cotton. Only the American origin Supima cotton used by brands like Brooks Brothers is a little closer to the level of the best Egyptian cotton.
