Outdoor Inspiration

 It is autumn and I am already anticipating what my outdoor space could look like in spring!
Crazy and exciting feeling but I really have to make some decisions now...

There are so many possibilities.
For sure,
I will transplant some bushes and perennials this week and
then try to figure out  how to organize my space so I am ready to go in the spring.

Here are just a few ideas that are floating around this head of mine right now....

I really want to think of this space in rooms.
I love the idea of an outdoor living area, dining area and fire pit.
Of course a lovely ol'spa would certainly fit in to my design!
I have already got an idea of where that might go.

But, for now feast your eyes on all of these and tell me which ones jump out at you!

I have a lead on some chairs like this in the above image....might come in handy around a little table down by the edge of the forest?

Dreaming of this.... gorgeous outdoor fireplace.

But, probably more realistically thinking of this? I think I could make something like this...

Somewhere there will be this...
Herb and veggie garden, not big but something.

And finally this. I love the feel of this space and I think it probably works well in my yard.
4 chairs around a low table?

What do you think?
If you had a blank slate to work with, top soil down, boulders in place....
where would you start?

  1. Donna, These are great inspiration photos. I love them all for different reasons. The first few are quite elaborate but I love the one with the fire pit and the last one that you chose. I'm sure you'll have lots of ideas roaming through your head all winter. Do you think you might start some of them now before frost? I can also see where you're going with the adirondack chairs in a circle too. I like it. :)

  2. What gorgeous photos Donna - the one with the chandelier? Makes my heart sing!
    Great post!

  3. Which ones don't jump out at me is more the question! Great photos for inspiration & they all look so relaxing & comfy, it's hard to pick a favorite.

  4. Great inspiration photos. I especially like the last one with 4 chairs around a low table. I could see that on a deck with an arbour over it or on a patio too. The firepit would be fun in another corner of the yard.

  5. Thanks for all the inspiration photos. Pinterest is the best....

  6. Love 'em all. I want a firepit!


You can leave a comment....totally up to you....Yep, I do love it when you do!
