Outdoor Living

I didn’t think that I would be writing any posts this week as I am on vacation in Florida.  Unfortunately though, the weather is not very cooperative.  As I write this, it is about 46 degrees outside.  Granted, it’s only 7:40 am, but still!  It’s only supposed to warm up to the low 60s today, which is about 10-15 degrees lower than it typically is in early March.  So you can understand why I, along with everyone else down here, am complaining about the weather.

Most of the activities revolve around the outdoors down here, and often the water in particular, and since it is too cold to do many of these activities comfortably, I am inside on the computer.  Be that as it may, I am still in Florida so I have the outdoors on my mind and have spent the past hour or so looking at outdoor living spaces on the internet.  Here are a few of them for your enjoyment!

A gorgeous outdoor living space in Southern California, complete with its own small pond:

A couple of cozy porches.  Notice the painted floor of the second image…porches seem to be a very popular place to try your hand at painted floors!

And finally, some intimate outdoor spaces:

What great examples of how design doesn’t have to stop at your front (or back) door.  By carrying it into the outdoors, you increase the living space of your home and hopefully your enjoyment of it! (Images link to their sources).
