Small Outdoor Living Space Before & After

 

We have 90+ degree weather for several days.  It looks like summer is here.  Well,  the weather in LA is always such a drama.  But with Memorial Day next week and official summer beginning on June 22nd, we know now it’s the great time to plan outdoor living for summer and enjoy nature as much as we can.

Outdoor living space can be large, luxurious and also can be as simple as a  small area that is dedicated to get-together lounging and entertaining.  Although it’s small, there are  always ways to make it interesting.   The outdoor living space we created in the video is French country style featuring with blue-stone circular pavers around the tree, French bistro chairs, teak dining table, wrought iron bench.   The orange fashionable umbrella adds a pop of color while perennial plants such as  ivy, iris, bird paradise lend a romantic feel to the space.

 

 

Enjoy and have a great Sunday!

12 Dream Outdoor Living Oases You will Fall in Love with

I am obsessed with outdoor living. The first thing I get up in the morning is to step out of the house and take a walk in my backyard garden—lemon trees, rose bushes,  morning breeze, bird singing, soft sunshine… It’s a beautiful and spiritual start for my day. When I sit in the house working and look out of the window, it’s all greenery. That really makes me more focus, creative  and productive.  Today is Sunday.  I was inspired to  put together 9 fabulous outdoor living spaces with different designs to share with you.  Enjoy!
