A natural wood covering allows the sunlight to peak in over this relaxing outdoor jacuzzi with ocean view. Exterior palm trees and large potted plants create a tropical surrounding perfect for relaxing.
The homeowners wanted a parlor for more intimate entertaining, so designers created a warm, inviting space to meet their needs. To keep the space bright and light, designers took advantage of the tropical sunlight. A wall of windows to the right of the space lets in plenty of light that can be controlled by sheer curtains. For additional light, two slender windows line the textured fireplace surround, which adds dimension to the space. To help make the space warm and inviting, designers had wood paneled ceilings installed and brought in a beautiful baby grand piano and modern, wood chairs to complement the rich, wood floors that run throughout the house.
You won't miss flowers when you grow Stromanthe sanguinea 'Triostar', a tropical with pink, cream and green foliage. This exotic-looking beauty likes an eastern or northern exposure, and avoid direct sunlight.
Stepping into this backyard feels a lot like discovering a hidden oasis, as a large swimming pool glints and sparkles in the sunlight. Palm trees accentuate that tropical aesthetic, while hedges act as a natural wall around the yard.
When shifting tropical foliage houseplants outdoors for summer, give them a spot with filtered sunlight, like on edge of a porch or beneath nearby trees. Choose self-watering containers like these to hold your plants while they’re on summer vacation, and you won’t spend lots of time watering.
