A home under an open sky

Life between four walls can be boring, if it’s a wonderful summer outside. It’s hard to resist the sunlight, the aroma, floating in the air, the luring sounds of the long day and the cool wind at night. Spending time under the sun and stars can be possible without having to do much. People, who have a house, a villa with a veranda, or a backyard, can make this idea come to fruition. The open air room is to be on the frontier between the interior and exterior. A corner with two walls can become the basis of an outdoor room.

Simple garden furniture and decorative elements are sufficient for the daytime crib. A tester bed on the veranda or in the summer shelter will make the night time rest a romantic experience under the stars. An even braver decision is to go with a garden crib, which would be turned into a place for relaxation, dining and having guests over for a cup of tea. This decision can be combined with nets for creeping plants, be decorated with hanging flower-pots, rose and lilac bushes, and transparent curtains. That way this place will be a cool crib for relaxing and getting in touch with nature during the hot summer days.

The balcony in a flat can also be transformed into a summertime residence, as long as it’s wide enough. Large panoramic balconies are appropriate for this purpose. The bed, dressed in a patterned cloth, can serve for both night time and daytime rest. A small table with appropriate decoration, which would answer to the owners’ style and disposition, is sufficient for spending time in the open space.

Paper lanterns, glass bowl with candles, ship models, sea-shells and all possessions with sentimental value are appropriate decor for the temporary summer shelter. Whether the shelter is located in the villa’s backyard, or on the balcony of the flat, it must have good shade. Beach umbrellas and sunshades prevent the effect of the burning sunbeams and give the opportunity to try out the advantages of an open air home. With a lot of sense and will, with fantasy and a good mood, this extraordinary idea can make everyone feel like in paradise during the summer.
