Outdoor Inspiration

Summer is officially here – okay, maybe not “officially” by the calendar’s standard, but in Texas, the heat dictates the summertime, and when I walk outside the weather is screaming summer…

So, to kick off the season of warm (…humid…) evenings, backyard barbecues, and long daylight hours (LOVE that!), here are some outdoor spaces that truly inspire …four spaces, to be exact.

Because that’s how many years we’ve lived int this house without any form of outdoor living space.





Love this modern patio.  Simple, functional, and cool.

Charming little corner.

Hidden gem.  I love the feel of this eclectic cabana.  

Don’t know how practical it is to have a real lamp out there, but it sure looks great.

Because every space is better with a killer chandelier…

…okay, I had to add one more because I’m in love with the chandelier, too.  

Maybe this means I have another year before I can finish my outdoor space…

How do YOU decorate your outdoor space?

    Perhaps one that wasn’t cluttered with bikes, sand toys, tennis balls and dump trucks 😉

  4. FOUR YEARS!!? Poor you! Any plans to get out there this year?
    These yards are all fantastic BTW!! Thanks for sharing.
    The hubs and I recently made our own circular brick outdoor fire pit. It’s fantastic …I’ll blog about it soon, but I still need to find some nice (affordable) chairs to style it up before I post!
