Go To Your Outdoor Happy Place!

Spring is such a wonderful time of year here in Houston. We’ve got breeze, it’s not too hot yet and the mosquitoes are NOT stalking your every move (thank goodness). It’s during this time of year that I am so thankful to have such a great outdoor space. Reading, blogging, watching my little one play are all done from under my huge umbrella on the patio. If you don’t have the outdoor setup of your dreams, check out some of these ideas and get it ready in time for this time, next year!

All the color and the homemade canopy. Love.

Love for The Great Outdoors!

I love, love, love a great outdoor space! Especially during this time of year when the weather is not too hot, the sun is shining and we have a nice breeze…. Oh yeah! So, naturally, I went looking for some outdoor area design ideas! Here’s what I found...

 I love all the color here! And, it’s pretty simple. 2 chairs and an ottoman. Lovely.

Even if you don’t have a lot of space, you can still make it fabulous!

Don’t have a covered outdoor area? Make one out of a storage shed! Brilliant.
