A beautifully decorated veranda patio, or a roof top, in today’s environment the garden and outdoors are an essential extension to our homes. Balancing the five essential elements of earth, fire, water, air and ether and interacting with nature along with some unique ideas not only makes our house vibrate with life but also brings the healing feel of nature to our senses.
The adorable detailed arches, artistically carved by hand with floral and leaf motifs enhance the view of the mountains in the lodge where we come together in the summer for a holistic rejuvenation of spirit. The barn doors with earthy tuscan vibes in the kitchen and the antique Indian door that embraces the entrance to the garden, the renovation of the outdoor patio gives a new dimension to the house surroundings. The kitchen windows that overlook the mountains are accented with custom arches, the patina seeped deeply into the wood over time, the carvings reminiscent of Mediterranean architecture, what a heart stopping moment it is at sunset or sunrise.
The design of the patio with rustic decor ideas is earthing and heart-stopping as it blends with nature. The jali carved panels are strategically placed so the morning sun filters through and casts beautiful shadows on the walls. The potted plants are lush and cleansing. The music from the water fall behind the granite Buddha sculpture is so peaceful and zen like. The state of art barbeque and oven in stainless steel with the stone walls that have creepers growing all over is like cooking in as natural a habitat but with modern luxuries.
The extra long console in dark green teals with carved sunrays serves as storage for your cookware and table linens. Seating is comfortable with plush lounge chairs and an exotic old brass door coffee table with camels gives the wow factor. Designed with earthy elegance the veranda leads to the acreage of natures bounty where we see a huge black granite elephant with its trump up in the air, a beautiful symbol of good luck and strength.
Subdued hues with an earthy feel, the antique armoires with burnished patinas and vintage carvings serve beautifully as wardrobe cabinets to hang coats when the weather gets cold. A relaxing homey ambience, the fireplace mantel made from old architectural beams gives and old world cottage feel to the veranda. Healing and softly sensuous, the rustic woods romance your soul.
