Outdoor Living

The one thing that sold us on our new house was the sizable backyard. It wasn’t in the best shape at the time but it had a spectacular oak tree and mature redwood, which is all we needed as jumpstart to our outdoor project. And now with the summer months quickly approaching, it’s time to put this project into high gear. Here’s a roundup of some outdoor spaces I’m drawing inspiration from. Stay tuned for updates on our progress!

    I’d like to spend my entire weekend in one of these places, please! I’m glad I have at least a little outdoor space in NYC (a small front yard to our place + a big porch off the back end of our apartment).

    They all look so idyllic. Such a shame it’s impossible to have outdoor soft seating where I live in England. The summer rain comes all to frequently, even with a cover it manages to get in and soak the cushions. Least it keeps the flowers keep growing though!

  14. The library is a good place to start your search for interior design ideas at home.
    For home-based office, it is quite needed for
    you to arrange the separate plug and board for wire otherwise you might stuck with messy situation. Remember
