How to Get the Outdoor Resort Look

Who doesn't love a relaxing getaway? When we think of outdoor spaces, our mind initially travels to our last exotic vacation. Even if it was a closer destination, there's still a unique, relaxed feeling that comes to mind. So, why not recreate it in your own backyard? We chose a few of our favorite places in a range of styles and featured some of our favorite outdoor furniture pieces to help you achieve that vacation mood in your personal space.

1- Modern Contemporary Outdoor Space

We normally see more of a romantic look in France, but the trendsetting French Balthazar Hotel and Spa is full of character blending authentic furnishings with a genuinely homey feel. Emulate the feeling in your outdoor dining space with the Janus et Cie Mood collection. Simple, sturdy and beautiful, it is crafted from premium teak grown and harvested from sustainable sources.  Weather resistant fabric is weaved over an aluminum frame to create a resilient, supportive sling. Add hanging lanterns for a rustic touch and finish it off with unique artwork to accent your greenery.

2- Modern Organic Outdoor Space

Overlooking the ski slopes, the Eden Hotel's sustainable, stylish design works in dialogue with its surroundings for a true Italian mountain experience in Bormio. Get a cozy rustic outdoor space with a handcrafted Lane Venture chair.  A solid aluminum frame is covered in hand-woven polyethylene fibers with longlasting outdoor quality. Add solid wood stump side tables and soften the look with ivory sheepskin throws and you'll have a perfectly nestled backyard area.

3- Southern Classic

Prefer tradition and charm? This look is suitable for a porch or a landscaped dining nook. Classic wicker paired with neutral textiles for a french countryside feel, our inspiration here comes from the enchanting Zero George Street hotel in quaint Charleston, SC. The Summer Classics resin wicker dining chair has an all-weather cushion that can be customized in suitable fabric options that withstand the elements for years to come. Antique accents and outdoor shutters will provide that southern appeal.

4- Beachy Chic

To compliment a sleek pool, consider a contemporary look that could be indoor or outdoor. We love a lounge area for some poolside chatting or cocktails, and an outdoor sofa provides the perfect setup. Lee Industries custom covered Oleander sofa brings comfort and a chic look to an outdoor space, similar to Kelly Wearstler's design at the Viceroy Anguilla.  Unique accent chairs complete the relaxed mood similar to a swank vacation resort.

5- Industrial Chic

Need an ideal solution for spacious city living? Harbour Outdoor is good at keeping things sleek and contemporary, add the clean Piano sectional to a simple, open space for an immediate impact. Keep things minimal and add plants in concrete planters randomly spaced around- and of course, statement lighting like these hanging lanterns to compliment the style.

6- Urban Contemporary

City living usually equates to a small space, but that doesn't mean it can't be designed well. Janus et Cie is always an ideal option to create a wow factor in any space. The Amari dining set is contemporary with a comfort factor included. Outdoor curtains compliment the look creating an exclusive feel to the space, and bunches of candles will create the perfect ambience (Hotel Empire neon sign optional).
