Outdoor Living Spaces

As spring is fast approaching, there is hope that our yards will go back to normal. One thing I have always loved and appreciated about home is the different outdoor living areas that my mother has always created. One near the willow tree at the top of the yard and one on the lowest part of the lawn. My favorite, though, is the quaint gravel courtyard... which is a true French style courtyard, complete with tables and chairs and hanging light fixtures. When I move, I will miss this...

It's so nice to be able to sit outside, read, have a lunch, and just enjoy nature. This summer, we're thinking of hosting an outdoor party with a fun Asian theme. We're thinking bright lanterns as the starting point and to work from there. If you have any ideas or inspiration, please share!

  1. I, too, adore outdoor spaces with ambiance. Using a landscape designer was worth every single penny. We live in the middle of a bird sanctuary and I could just sit outside for hours if I allowed myself the luxury (not in the hot Houston summers, however). Now, I'm looking to replace my existing furniture with pieces possessing more contemporary lines. I love your pics; thank you!

  2. Oh, that sounds amazing! Most of the pictures feature EMU outdoor furniture. I like how modern the look is, but not "cold" at the same time...they might be a great one to check out~

  3. this is what I need right now. so lovely.

  4. So three days later, we headed off to the Toy watch and was greeted by the Sales Supervisor.The first thing you should know in buying a Cartier watches is that Chanel watches come in different ranges.
