Pretty Outdoor Living

Well, in anticipation of the warmer months ahead, I've been hooked on beautiful outdoor spaces! The only thing is, I wish we had a space for outdoor living at our condo. One day, we'll have space although I don't think we'll go as extravagant as some of the following photos!

I am just loving ALL of these (but especially #1!). And this post may be just the motivation I need to get out of the house this weekend and make my deck and garden pretty again after languishing all winter!

Outdoor living spaces are wonderful, but I didn't always have it available either..., so I would go out to a close by park or walk through the neighborhoods. Now, I absolutely love my porch.

Boy, am I with you on this one! I'm craving outdoor spaces right now, and all of these are like heaven to look at. Makes me want to get my patio furniture out tomorrow and just hope we're done with snow and ice for the year! :-)

I found your blog through Hooked on Fridays :-)

All of those outdoor spaces are gorgeous!! Hard to pick one favourite, but I think I have to go with the first one -- love that green :-) The gardens and stone walls in the third picture are beautiful too.

We are having our deck rebuilt this week, and I had to throw away all of our old deck furniture because it was starting to unravel. I would love to get some sofas and chairs like the ones in your first picture!

Those are so beautiful! We have an outdoor patio, but it sure doesn't look like any of those!

Beautiful pics. I'm just dying for an outdoor fireplace but I live in the South. I'm not sure we would use it that much...but wouldn't it be pretty!
