Do you often find yourself day dreaming of tropical island holidays or far away exotic escapes?
Are you a lover of the sun, sea, sand and surf? If you answered ‘yes’ it sounds like you might have a serious case of the ‘Wanderlust’. A perfectly normal reaction to the onset Spring and its warmer weather. In fact, just knowing summer is around the corner has my mind wandering off to picturesque scenes of poolside cocktails and cabanas!
Nothing beats a coastal cool vibe and a touch of the Tropicana which has me thinking; why not re-create this same feeling at home by giving the house and garden their very own a resort-style make-over?!
