Style Secret: Outdoor Living
If you wanted to hibernate within four walls, you'd decorate your house like a Lapland cabin. Outdoor living is half the fun of tropical style, so look for opportunities to merge interior spaces with exterior ones and seek out spots to savor the sun. A cozy grouping of furniture and a handful of well-chosen accents turn this porch into a bona fide living space.
Easy does it: You don't need to build a lanai or screen in your porch to create an outdoor room. A simple trellis and canvas panels transform a plain concrete patio into a mini cabana; a row of brightly painted Adirondack chairs makes a lawn feel like an instant beach. And if you have two nicely spaced trees, you can hang a hammock and call it a day.
