6 Inspiring Ways to Decorate Your Hong Kong Terrace This Summer
We look back the archives of Home Journal, our sister publication, for some of the most beautifully decorated terraces
Summer means taking to the beach and soaking up the sun – or, if you’re lucky enough to have a home in Hong Kong with a rooftop, terrace or balcony, dusting off the grill and unfolding your loungers. If you’re looking to give your outdoor area a refresh, take inspiration from one of these six beautiful Hong Kong terraces.
All That Echoes
The trees perched beyond the wall mirror the verdant bushes on the patio; the wooden screen pairs with the wooden floor; the floor tiles ingeniously matches with the dining table, chairs, and sofas – it's all about echoing.
The abundant use of striped accessories not only conveys a nautical theme, but also creates visual harmony when juxtaposed with the lines on the wooden fence, table and chair.
Instead of concrete wall or a fence, use a transparent glass wall to visually extend your terrace, especially if you have a gorgeous view, like this unobstructed panoramic view of the sea. Your space will be extra airy and illuminated.
Connect the inside with the outside with a sliding patio door. This makes for two options: a maximised space when the door is pushed aside, and more privacy when the door is closed and covered with the curtain.
A tunnel-like corridor leading to the terrace adds playfulness and a touch of mystique. To turn it into a romantic spot at night, wrap the fence or trees with fairy lights.
Synchronise with your home’s natural environment and truly embrace the outdoors by and covering your terrace floor with grass – synthetic grass can be easier to manage.
