Happy Wednesday! Though our Bay Area weather is still a bit touch and go in springtime, this girl is ready for some serious outdoor living! I have always dreamed of owning a home and living somewhere where outdoor living is a prominent part of life. Whether that is on a wrap-around porch, backyard patio, or deck…I’d be happy! I love being able to step outside for a breath of fresh air with my morning coffee, be able to relax in a comfy chair (preferably rocking) with a cool glass of sweet tea on a balmy afternoon, and alfresco dining under twinkle lights on a warm summer night. Sounds so dreamy, doesn’t it?!
We currently live in an old city apartment with no form of an outdoor space. Soooo, no, I’m not living out any of these outdoor-living scenarios… yet. But you can’t stop a girl from dreamin’, hopin’, and wishin’! And I really can’t even help thinking about it a bit more than usual this time of year since SO many retailers have SO many cute options for darling patio and outdoor entertaining decor! I mean, I walked into Home Goods the other day and nearly started loading up a cart full of things to decorate my imaginary patio! I wish I was kidding.
To further feed my flame, I figured I’d hop on Pinterest (Are we friends on there, yet?! Follow me!) to drool over beautiful porch & patio inspiration! I love seeing how there are so many different and creative options out there for outdoor decor – for spaces large and small! I’d honestly be happy with a 5 foot balcony to decorate at this point, so it’s fun to drool over everything from huge dreamy yards to also smaller and more realistic spaces as well.
I decided to round-up some of my favorite spaces I discovered and hopefully it inspires you to begin to think about decorating a (current or future) outdoor space of your own for this upcoming outdoor season!
I love how many unique touches one can make to their own outdoor space! I also love that no matter the size, customizing any form of outdoor space certainly contributes to making any home feel that much bigger! After all, if the weather permits, it can serve as another ‘room’!
Do y’all get as excited about outdoor living spaces as much as I do? Anyone in need of a little sprucing of their own porch or patios? If so, I also wanted to mention how amazing Cost Plus World Market and Pier 1 Imports are for outdoor decor, especially this time of year before it all sells out for summer! I always browse it all just to look and dream and this year is some of the best product I think I’ve seen in years! I mean, have you ever seen an umbrella that screams my name so much?! I have not. Seriously considering purchasing it now and saving it for our future outdoor space someday. (Sound good, Sam?! Okay, perfect!! 😉 )
