Lush Outdoor Dining Area

Greenery, cheery accents and rattan furniture add style to a backyard terrace.

Hits of sky blue enliven a muted black, white and grey tabletop palette. Succulents in textured ceramic bowls and surrounded by glass hurricanes make an elegant centrepiece, as well. Generous armchairs with striped pillows invite guests to linger long after the dishes have been cleared away.

For more outdoor decorating and design ideas, see our Tropical-Inspired Outdoor Spaces gallery.
