When my friend asked me to help her redesign her lanai and make it into a tropical oasis, I jumped at the opportunity. Craving an updated look to match the vibe of the rest of her home, we discussed her goals for the space. She wanted a blue and white color scheme with pops of color, an area for dining and lounging, and for it feel relaxing like you were on vacation in the islands. A West Indies inspired lanai was what she was going for.

Here’s a look at her space before. She was willing to replace all of her furniture, making it super fun for me 🙂
I put together some ideas and developed this West Indies inspired mood board consisting of lots of blue and white patterns with pops of yellow and orange throughout, banana leaf print, wicker and terra cotta textures and lots of greenery.
And here’s her finished West Indies inspired lanai all styled out and photographed beautifully by my lovely friend Ashlee Hamon Photography.
