If there's one thing that the Greek got right, besides for yogurt and feta cheese, it's knowing how to design a terrace. Greece has been on my travel bucket list for years now, therefore, I am always researching and dreaming of spending mornings by the blue sea surrounded by white walls with pops of pattern and color. This got me thinking, why can't we all bring a little slice of the Greek islands to our own homes?!
So, this week's Friday Finds is inspired by the Greek.
I love how these outdoor spaces blend in so beautifully with the nature surrounding them, the contrast of blue on white playing off of the natural colors and textures of life on the coast, almost becoming one. There is always a sense of tranquility, (perhaps the Aegean Sea has something to do with that) drawing you in, inviting you to stay for hours.
With Summer upon us, now is the perfect time to breathe new life into your patio, deck or outdoor terrace and here are some of my ideas for doing just that. I'm still dreaming about visiting Greece, but for now, I'll try and bring a little bit of that tranquility into my own space, sea or no sea. And one thing's for sure, there will be olives and wine! Happy weekend, everyone.
