I love me some beautiful outdoor spaces...and after spending a day at my sister's new house and admiring her beautiful new patio and fire-pit (that I'm not jealous of at all...really I'm not), I have been pinning a ton of outdoor ideas for our next home. I am absolutely the stylist that believes that your patio or deck is just another room in your house, but unfortunately haven't done much with ours here. I do, however, have big dreams for our next home's outdoor space. Here's just a few of the spaces I've been lusting after:
And while "pinning" is fun....so is window shopping...
I'm dreaming of both a place to eat and a living space in our next backyard...
I'm loving the Applaro line at Ikea for outdoor furniture. They have some great pieces and prices.
The Threshold line at Target has great outdoor accessories this year, I can't wait to get my hands on these black and white Ikat print pillows.
I'm so excited about these bright and cheery wired stools from World Market. They would add so much fun and a great pop of color to the simple black and white theme above.
The Bali line from World Market is my dream outdoor dining furniture. I love the character and charm that comes from this set. I do, however, have dreams of a DIY outdoor table. I would love to design something with a built in ice bucket for drinks, made out of a fantastic piece of old wood.
Then there is this:
This is a definite in my book. I've always wanted some sort of outdoor bed, and I can't wait to try my hand at doing it myself....or drawing up plans for my husband to do it himself. I love the idea of the canopy around it too....too perfect.
So there it is, a list of plans...or dreams really, for a future outdoor space.
What about you? Any big plans for your backyard patio or deck this summer? Dish!
