Nowadays, we just cannot talk enough of outdoor living, specially after we unofficially kicked off summer 2 days ago. So, today we summarized 5 things you need to consider when you plan your outdoor space.
Decide the location to build your outdoor kitchen. Before designing an outdoor kitchen, you will need to decide where you would like to build it: place your outdoor kitchen close to the house on an existing patio or along the home’s exterior walls, or a set-up further from the home for a more intimate experience. You will need to take note of the existing utility lines and understand which you may need so those installation costs can be included in the budget estimate. If you would like your outdoor kitchen to have running water, you’ll need to ensure that the proper plumbing lines are installed. The same is true for gas or electric-powered appliances. That being said, there are several thoughts to locate your outdoor kitchen: –Locate your outdoor kitchen close to the home. The closer your outdoor cooking area is to your home’s backyard entrance, the more convenient it will be for food preparation and transport. You don’t want to be so far from your indoor kitchen that it is a hassle to go back and forth, this scenario often results in rarely using the outdoor kitchen.

When we talk to our friends and clients about outdoor entertaining, there are often several things that come to their mind. And shade and style are two of them. Today we are going to talk about outdoor structures that provide shade and style while you relax at your outdoor oasis.
An awning or overhang is a secondary covering attached to the exterior wall of a building. It is typically composed of canvas woven of acrylic, cotton or polyester yarn, or vinyl laminated to polyeste.
The Patio Umbrella
An umbrella is one of the best patio shade options to protect small spaces – such as sitting areas or table settings – from the sun. Because they are so light, outdoor umbrellas don’t weather high winds well, so it’s a good idea to bring them inside before storms. They are affordable and available in a wide range of colors, shapes, patterns, and materials, so you’re sure to find one that suits you and your design style. Read more about the styles of outdoor umbrellas below.
We had spent much of the time in our backyard for cocktail parties and picnics last year due to the lock-down. And this year, with the still on-going pandemic crisis, we plan to do something different. The goal here is able to get away in nature and still enjoy the things we love to do in our backyard such as table setting over the weekends. So we searched the places that not only provide the amazing wildness with interesting trails to explore but also beautiful picnic areas in the park that we can just enjoy sitting around our picnic table. Last weekend, we decided to visit Irvine Regional Park. The park is so breath-taking. Irvine Park in Orange, California is a 160-acre park that became Orange County’s first regional park in 1897. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The park is so dotted with lush oak trees and is qiuite scenic for any kind of picnic. Then, there are quite a few trails to the deep mountains. Since this is our first time to come here, we will have to leave the hiking for another time. But here is our picnic table.
We found a picnic table by a lush oak tree which providesthe nice shade and breeze. The grass is so green in spring time. We decided to go with the classical red-and-white checkered outdoor tablecloth to set the tone for a rather rich-toned table color scheme.
With the weather getting warmer, we cannot wait to set up a beautiful table for alfresco dining with the colorful fresh spring blooms and garden greenery. Today we are going to share 9 ideas for alfresco dining.
A blue hand block-printed tablecloth anchors this outdoor dining space with a chic boho vibe.
We hiked Castaways Park in Newport Beach this Saturday, which has stunning views of Newport Back Bay and Harbor. The hike is moderate and short. But we enjoyed the great ocean views and beautiful homes along the trail.
