Beached Baby: Set up a luxurious, cocooned outdoor escape
OCT 20, 2015 | By Jaina Chandwany
What if the cool, crisp air and greenery of South East Asia, were closer to you than you thought? Transport yourself without using up your travel miles – create an escape capsule similar to this balcony in a nature embracing New Delhi home.First you need to set up a reading corner; opt for a hammock or even a cosy seater, like this cocooning wicker seat/swing. Go solo, for some peace and quiet or station a pair for sweet romantic symmetry.
If luxury is right up your alley, match the organic muteness with sharp bursts of colour. Bright hued silk cushions and fresh seasonal flowers in a bowl or vase should do the trick.
Our tip: Grey granite flooring, deep brown side tables and big black pots holding thick foliage can create the impression of a refined contemporary cove. Always keep a foldable butler tray handy, just in case your stomach craves an impromptu brunch…or a Mai Tai.
