It doesn’t matter, whether it’s about the furniture of a wide living room in your Villa Lago Maggiore or the space organisation in the porch in front of the house. This year’s summer trend for our Villas in Arona is to ensure that the external spaces, as well as the inner ones, are functional, good looking and above all comfortable to live in. From the bright boho to Scandinavian minimalism, here you find the outdoor living trends that have inflamed this hot 2019 summer.
ARONA VILLAS: THIS YEAR’S MOST POPULAR OUTDOOR TRENDS
LONG LIVE THE BOHO CHIC STYLE
Bohemian style has been enchanting people since time began. Even this year it’s at the top of the charts of the most popular trends and that also goes for the gardens and green spaces in our Villas in Arona. But this summer we could taste something new, especially in terms of fabrics. If the use of chandeliers, big carpets and comfortable pillows has remained unchanged, what really made the difference it’s the use of fabrics such as velvet, leather and chenille, which have been rarely used for the outdoors so far.
MAKE SPACE TO SUSTAINABILITY
It’s been years since when we started talking about sustainability, but in the last few years it’s become one of the most debated matters in everyday life and even at home. The use of natural materials, coming from sustainable and renewable sources, has conquered the interior design as well as the decor of outdoor spaces did and, especially in this last case, has found its maximum inspiration in rattan. What are we talking about? It’s a plant fiber obtained from the processing of climbing palm trees from South East Asia: it grows very fast and doesn’t need to be watered. That’s why it’s considered an extremely sustainable and renewable material.
In the parks of many luxury villas, as well as on the terraces of many apartments for sale in Arona, rattan has become popular.
Orange, red, yellow and this year even coral. Brilliant, bright colours, that in an outdoor space under the scorching sun of summer couldn’t be missing. In several of our prestigious villas for sale Lago d’Orta and Lago Maggiore, summer colours have also triumphed in the garden, often perfectly mixed in order to brighten the padded neutral decor, and sometimes in complete contrast with the emerald green of accessories and the natural green of a dreamy location.
THE KITCHEN MOVES TO THE GARDEN
Once people used to cook indoors and, if they wanted to enjoy their meal in the open air, they normally brought all dishes to the garden. But times have changed: today the trend is to move the kitchen outdoors to host friends and relatives more comfortably. And what are the most popular materials? Masonry or aluminium. If we’re talking colours, warm wood tones are dominant, especially because they make a good match with the green of the garden and the blue of the sky.
THE FAR NORTH HAS CONQUERED THE CITY
The cold wind blowing; the waves crashing against the black sand; the spectacular Nordic landscapes. A well defined style was needed to recall these details in the gardens of our Arona villas and so it was. After conquering the internal decor, this year the Scandinavian minimalism has also conquered the outdoors: white or grey deck chairs, black armchairs, bistro tables made of lightweight powder coated aluminium are just some examples of this style decor. And if you want to feel like you’re on a typical Iceland beach, just choose the natural teak!
