Awe Inspiring Outdoor Spaces

The weather is really starting to turn here in Seattle and that is inspiring me to think about getting outside, which leads me to beautiful outdoor spaces.  Let's take a look together:

I just love the overall feel of this area...the lighting, the railing, the enclosed space.
So inviting!

I Dream Of said...

Perfect timing - we're working on a major landscaping overhaul of our yard. It's much smaller than these beauties, but I see little bits of detail for my inspiration file!

Happy Wednesday.

I so wish my outdoor space were as elegant but then again, I'd never spend a second inside!

Thoughts on Design said...

I'm reminded that I should stop and take a break, go outside and enjoy a little of the day in my side yard. Several more hours of work await me this evening. A nice break, some fresh air would feel good!

My two fans are the rustic table and chairs under what look like olive trees and the one below with the grass/bluestone checkerboard pattern.

That second photo is so soft and gray, it's hard to believe it's a photo.

Karen said...

It will be so nice to begin dining outdoors, as soon as the weather clears a bit. Such lovely images.

Beautiful, all of them. I really love that chequerboard grass idea. I might have to try that somewhere. x Sharon

Meghan @ Wishful Thinking said...

Send some of the good weather this side please? After seeing these pics, I just want to be outside now!

Victoria said...

These are all stunning images. The first one is fabulous. Steve might like to know that the second image is the olive tree terrace at John Saladino's California home called Villa diLemma and was photographed by Alexandre Bailhache. Thanks for the inspiration, Barbara.

Haus and Home said...

Love the checkerboard stones and grass!
