Cabana Style ~ Bringing the Resort into your own Backyard

Hi Everyone! I’m Sarah from Just The Bees Knees and I’m back again to share another inspiring mood board with you! I must be on a relaxation kick (which must tell you something about my crazy life right now!) because last month I talked about giving Mom a place of her very own to hide out in, and this month I’m dreaming of  tropical resorts to escape to.

Are you ready to call your travel agent and book a resort vacation?! Well how about bringing the resort to you? All these images of tranquil outdoor spaces have inspired me to bring in a little cabana style to my outdoor space. 

Create Cabana Style In Your Own Backyard

They require some sort of overhead structure, weather it be a pergola or a canvas tent. They must ALWAYS have curtains. There really is nothing on earth more soothing than soft white curtains blowing in the breeze. Cozy outdoor couches or lounges are a must. And lets not forget the soft carpet underfoot. Top it off with a fan, lanterns, LOTS of greenery and some mood lighting, and we, my friends, have ourselves our very own cabana. All we need now is a waiter and a pool boy. But that’s another post entirely 🙂

Just for a few minutes anyways until one of my kids starts screaming “Mom!”
