With the end of year coming up, I can’t help but think of palm trees, salt water, and far-away tropical getaways. Unfortunately for most of us, the hustle and bustle of Christmas and the New Year means that our wanderlust will have to wait for a more opportune time. But why should this stop you from enjoying a resort life during the summer? Transform your home into a resort paradise with design savvy additions and a selection of carefully curated Max Sparrow pieces so you will never have to leave again (well, for the foreseeable future...).
The first step to achieving a breezy and light-filled plantation resort aesthetic at home is by introducing aptly named plantation shutters into the space that complement almost any furniture scheme. These delightful window treatments allow for you to control the amount of fresh air and privacy you want during the day whilst providing a gorgeous aesthetic – they’re perfect for our hot Australian summers. Frame these off with beautiful block-out curtains in the bedroom for cozy sleep-ins – island style!
You can’t go past my Marseille range when it comes to resort-style living at home. The Max Sparrow Marseille Wood Trim Sofa has a gorgeous intricately carved timber frame that adds character to the neutral upholstered fabric. Exotic ikat accent cushions provide comfort and style, adding to the tropical aesthetic of this beautiful piece. Take the ikat print to the next level with the Max Sparrow Marseille Slipper Chair – they make for a great statement piece without compromising on comfort. Complement the sofa and chairs with the Max Sparrow Montauk Square Coffee Table and the Max Sparrow Montauk Marble Top Cane Side Table for a relaxed yet sophisticated setting. The Max Sparrow Malay Rattan Table Lamps will be the cherry on top, incorporating a natural and organic texture to the space.
A resort isn’t complete without beautiful lush greenery, so think about introducing some oversized plants for added colour and texture. A banana plant in a beautiful ceramic ornate pot will make a grand statement, bringing a touch of the West Indies to your home.
Achieving a plantation style abode and a classically island influenced interior is attainable in a carefully selected collection of breezy furniture pieces and savvy design additions… Do you have a tip for transforming your home with a resort aesthetic?
