It’s no secret that I’m a nature lover and have a passion for beautiful gardens and outdoor rooms. This is one of the reasons that spring and summer are my favorite times of the year. I’ve often encouraged readers to view many of the pictures that I’ve featured as inspiration for their own home design projects. However, it has just recently occurred to me that I have never fully explained exactly what that means or what it looks like in practice. The above picture is one that I thought was very beautiful and inspirational. It may or may not look like your outdoor space but perhaps it reminds you of a similar space that brings back fond memories of a tropical vacation. So with this style guide to outdoor living spaces I’m going to deconstruct this outdoor room and provide some tips on how you can create a similar space for your own home.
