Use the ocean as your peg

Clear blue waters can easily calm our nerves and put us at ease. Channel your love for the waves and fine sand by hanging photos showing waves or elements lie seashells. Complete the look of this corner by picking woven baskets as storage and a bench spruced up with blue and cream-colored pillows.

Invest in sturdy outdoor furniture

If you're planning an outdoor area makeover, you may want to invest in new furniture that can withstand the heat of the sun, strong winds, and even rain. Durability should be on top of your list of priorities when picking pieces. Those made from Narra and Tanguile are ideal choices.

Hang a hammock

If you have a lanai or garden, you may choose to hang a hammock and turn the spot into your own cozy nook. Liven it up with throws and pretty pillows to make it more comfortable. Once you're all set, you can enjoy your siesta, read a good book, or savor a couple of refreshments.

RL Tip: You can also have a hammock inside the home! Click here for our favorite pegs.
