Outdoor Spaces Perfect for Summer...

 Have you seen some of the outdoor spaces in House Beautiful lately? I'm so inspired to change up my little outdoor hideaway. Here's a few that have truly inspired me to do a little redecorating...

Bright colors are always fun for summer!

A little cottage charm...

Mirrors and art are a great way to bring the indoors
outside for a more intimate feel!

This reminds me of Nantucket. Of course, lime green with
 pops of fuschia always grab my attention too!

My all time favorite little tid bid of inspiration! I would LOVE my whole house
to be designed like this outdoor porch...isn't it just lovely?
Chic entertaining at it's best

A cozy sunroom to snuggle up in with the perfect book! 

I love how cottage inspired chairs and lanterns were used in this space
 to create a softer feel. It's perfect for evening dinners....

Wow, where do I start? Hmmmm, guess I'll just have to jump right in and find out! I'll keep you posted once my new outdoor space is complete. Now, let me just throw a disclaimer out much as I would LOVE LOVE LOVE to have a cute shabby chic cottage inspired outdoor space...Hubby would not be so tickled! Somehow having a beer on his back deck while sitting on white ruffles with pink flowers just doesn't excite him....huh, who woulda thought!

Happy Friday My Lovelies! Make it count for a beautiful day, the weekend is just around the corner!!


  1. Loving these outdoor spaces but they sort of make me depressed about my mud pile :)

  2. I love House Beautiful! That outdoor sunroom with the chandelier is my favorite!


Thanks so much for leaving me a comment. Each one I receive is like a sweet little gift! I look forward to reading each one.
