Outdoor Spaces: Interior Design Inspiration for Summer time!

Summer is upon us.  We celebrated Memorial Day, the school year has ended or is ending soon, and we are beginning to settle into that lazy summer feeling.  Most of us still have to go to work each morning, but we get to dress more casually and look forward to slower weekends. Spending time outside with friends is one of the best parts of summer for us and we’ve been eyeing some bright, airy and inviting outdoor spaces.

Christopher Worthland has gathered a great collection of outdoor rooms, and shares them on The Art of the Room.  We are passing along some of them to you.

The first few photos showcase graceful and elegant rooms dressed in natural and neutral shades of whites.  Looking at these pictures, it’s easy to imagine our friends, wine glasses in hand, engaging in witty conversation and enjoying a relaxing summer evening.

The stone wall adds a timeless feel to this room, and those chairs are amazing!

The breezy, tropical feel of the next few areas makes us ready for an afternoon nap.

We’ll leave you with this last room, one of our favorites!  With the staghorn ferns lining the walls, the soft blue color pallette, and natural wood touches, this room feels stylish and and fresh, while also evoking memories of quiet, calm, lemonade-filled afternoons.
