Today I’m sharing some beautiful and inspiring outdoor rooms for summer: outdoor dining areas and outdoor living rooms to help you with ideas for creating your own perfect outdoor sanctuary.
We had the most incredible May weather this year. It was like summer, truly.
And then arrived Junuary.
It’s been SO much colder and rainy… which in some ways is good because we need the rain. But I miss the warmth!!! I had to bring my winter boots and jacket out of hiding for the school track meet yesterday.
I can’t wait for the summer weather to return (fingers crossed that it’s soon!). Until then, I’m busy planning how to style our outdoor spaces for this coming summer season. I’m so excited to start “living” outside again! And I’ve gathered some beautiful and inspiring outdoor rooms for summer that I want to share with you today…
Outdoor rooms can be anything from a casual pea gravel patio transformed with the addition of outdoor furnishings and accessories, to finished deck or screened porch areas. If you don’t have a defined space in your yard, an easy solution might be to purchase or build pergola, and finish the space under it with patio stones or gravel.
That being said, an outdoor room can even be an area that you designate on your lawn and define with the addition of furniture and planters. The fun part about designing outdoor summer spaces is that they are fairly temporary so you can mix it up from year to year very easily. It’s fun to play around with lighting and plants, as they create a cozy and welcoming ambiance in your outdoor room.
I hope you find some inspiration in this gorgeous outdoor summer rooms…
