Evoke wanderlust

“My ideal outdoor terrace would overlook the seaside and would have a romantic and whimsical feel that is reminiscent of one you’d see on the Amalfi Coast,” says Claire Sá, director of architectural- and interior-design company De Rosee Sa. “I adore vintage wrought-iron outdoor furniture, particularly French pieces made in the 1950s and 1960s. There would be striped cushions, lots of terracotta pots and colorful parasols.

I’m inspired by the terraces that are dotted across the Italian Riviera, with their delicate iron balustrades and incredible views. You can achieve a similar look by incorporating outdoor furniture with ornate detailing – and by introducing quintessential bold stripes. Stripes have a long-standing association with outdoor furniture; you can find some fantastic hardwearing fabrics in fun, vivid colors.”



Go for bold

“My advice to anyone looking to give their terrace an uplift would be to go bold and introduce some color,” suggests Sá. “Don’t feel like you need to play it safe in this space. It’s separate to your house; so have fun, layer patterns and evoke the spirit of summer.”

Dream beyond the space

“If practicality wasn’t an issue, my dream terrace would include a pool, an outdoor dining and entertaining area with adjoining outdoor kitchen, and a separate undercover cooking space,” continues Sá. “A functional pool house with a fully equipped bathroom and storage would also be ideal.”

Bring the inside out

“We love to blur the lines between inside and outside, bringing the inside outside and the outside inside,” Buchanan says. “For an outdoor space, this means lots of loose cushions and linens – even an armchair or two. We also love decorating the walls as you might do indoors, using mirrors and even paintings – so we always keep an eye out at vintage shops and markets for art that we can use outside. A terrace should feel relaxed and intimate, with lots of candles and soft lighting – and outdoor speakers for ambient music to help you set the scene.”

“All homes should be havens – and outdoor terraces are the purest expression of this,” shares Sarah Peake of interior-design agency Studio Peake. “Unlike some of the messier indoor spaces (kitchens, bathrooms), terraces don’t need to be functional; they don’t need a purpose beyond giving you a space you can kick back and really relax in. For me, a terrace should evoke a sense of almost preternatural calm; it should be effortlessly atmospheric – so avoiding clutter is key.”

Promote calm and tranquility

“Getting the architectural elements and hard finishes right is key – they should feel like they’ve always been there,” says Peake. “Look at paving that has a past, such as reclaimed granite or locally sourced stone. I loved the floor designs at the Hermès show during Milan Design Week, featuring natural stones in beautiful patterns. Set against the contrast of ancient stone, I like my garden furniture to be modern – the clean, contemporary lines act as a perfect foil for my antique paving stones.”
