Clients love planning outdoor living areas for their vacation homes, especially in the late summer. After a season relaxing in the warm air, you can appreciate features needed to enjoy the outdoors. Soak up the sun, lounge under the stars, and embrace dining ‘al fresco’.

Favorite finds’ in an outdoor living area.

Outdoor Lighting

Outdoor lighting is an essential to creating ambiance for evening gatherings. The outdoor string lights are weather-proof and durable, and able to withstand Caribbean climates. Now a popular lighting trend, the classic Edison Bulbs are included, making shopping simple. Above each bulb is a little loop built into the fixture for easy hanging with a small zip tie. They’re dimmer-compatible, if you install a dimmer switch, in order to create the right mood for the occasion.

Pizza Oven

Do you enjoy hosting parties when you travel south? The Kettle Pizza Oven adds a unique twist to the outdoor barbecue party scene.

‘Foodies’ who enjoy the gourmet taste of wood-fired pizza love preparing their own creations. For kids, a ‘pizza station’ with toppings keeps them occupied during a function. You can host a special ‘Build Your Own Pizza’ night with friends and neighbors on your return to the islands.

Dinnerware

Melamine dishes are practical and durable, perfect for indoor and outdoor table settings. They’re lightweight, dishwasher-safe, and BPA-free.. Add a little island flare to your BBQ parties with these tropical styles.

Lounge seating

Conversation sets are a staple in every backyard. These sofas are spacious and comfy, and mimic the indoor living room experience, outside. Made from materials including PVC wicker, powder-coated aluminium, and teak, they are intended for backyards in the tropics.

Outdoor Accessories

Outdoor accessories go along way to styling a basic sofa set. Playing with the island style patterns and adornments allows you to personalize your living area. To keep your tropical look sophisticated, use a narrow color selection with different sizes, textures and patterns. These pillows and rug are some favorites by Lagnappe Custom Interiors when making recommendations to clients.  

We love the Serena & Lily outdoor pillows to spice up these plain basic sets that are a back yard staple. They mix and match well, so it’s hard to go wrong. Creating an outdoor living room is a great way to welcome friends and family
