Summer is here and with the home quarantine in place, it’s time to make the most of your outdoor space and all that great tropical summer weather. Your villas may come fully-furnished but there’s nothing like adding a little personal touch to transform your outdoor space and turning it into something of your very own by sprucing up that patio, outdoor porch, and backyard space.

Here are a few DIY ideas to get you started.

Porch Plants

The idea of adding (more) greenery when you’re already outside may seem absurd but, trust us, it is worth it! Adding lush plants can really transform your outdoor space by lending tons of amazing character.

Just a few potted flower plants will bring colour, texture, and shapes to change the way your outdoor space looks and feels. Just adding a shaded part of your porch for the Goan summer sun can be rather harsh!

Become one with nature

There’s nothing quite like adding green to soothe the eyes and feeling one with the potted plants and lush gardens around you. All you would have to do is get yourself some green-hued cushions and decorative pillows you can throw on to your patio or backyard furniture. Just like that, you will have transformed your outdoor space with just one small but significant addition!

Light up your post-dusk lounging time

Your final step is to incorporate some light into your outdoor lounging area. There’s nothing as cosy and magical as a nice warm glow on a balmy evening.

With a simple addition of a lantern or some fairy lights or string lights that are both easy-on-the-pocket, you’ll have set just the right mood for those great summer evenings spent on your porch in your backyard.
