At a loss on how to decorate your terrace? Get inspired by these five terraces we love
If planned right, your terrace can become your go-to spot to escape from hectic city living, even if temporarily. Think of it as an extension of your living room, if you’re at a loss for where to start decorating it. Keep the essentials in mind – a small lightweight table, a few chairs and several potted plants. If it receives harsh sunlight, build a canopy with some light cotton fabric to filter it in. Last but not the least, don’t forget the lights! String up several fairy lights or paper lanterns to give your terrace an ethereal glow at night.
