Living With Great Style

outdoor living: which one do you adore?

With the sun and bright blue skies still gracing us with its presence, all I can think about is having a deck or outdoor patio. I imagine eating al fresco as the sun sets over the bay . . . maybe we’ll get lucky and have one in our next home. When you I don’t have something in my home, I always dream up what I would do if I did have it. All of the above images have little bits that are dream-worthy.

What would you look for in an outdoor patio or deck? Would you use it to lounge around or to host a little dinner party? Ahhhhh . . . the possibilities and have a little oasis to call you own.

    oooh, I love them all but if I had to choose, that last image with the fireplace looks like a great spot for wine and conversation!

  • Melissa says:

    Definitely tough to decide, but the second pic looks like the perfect spot to curl up with a good book or take a catnap!

  • christine donee says:

    ooo that first or second one.. definitely.

  • Stephanie says:

    Love the first one. It feels very Euro/rustic. I would eat every meal out there if I could!!

  • Erika @ ~TiptoeButterfly~ says:

    HOW DO YOU PICK?!?! – i'm ALLLLLLL about being outside when the weather allows – i LOVE being in the outdoors and soaking it all up!

    Love the table in the first pic, the lanterns in the 2nd, the SPACE in the 3rd, the chaise in the 4th and the location in the 5th – I'd be happy really with any of them! I have a deck now and it's no where near as lovely as these. Thanks for the inspiration xx

  • Alice Olive says:

    Oh, wow, love the fourth image. Are they Risom chairs? (Spelling might be off here…) Stunning!

  • Erin says:

    #3 and #5 are pretty much utter perfection.

    I adore the deck over the water! Reminds me of being back home on the lake. And… I even have one of the chairs. Happy Tuesday!

  • Luella and June says:

    I love the 3rd picture down! That deck is amazing and how fun it would be to have dinner parties out there!

  • Lisa says:

    #2 for me — looks like the perfect place for an afternoon nap, cozying up with a book, or just lounging around!

  • Will @ Bright.Bazaar says:

    The first space has a very romantic charm to it, so being a die hard romantic, I think I'd have to plump for that one!

  • articulateart says:

    The 3rd one is awesome! Looks really comfortable and a great way to spend dinner with friends and family!

  • South of Market says:

    Love the symmetry in #3…

  • Sarah Jane says:

    Love these pics, been fixing up my small outdoor space and on the hunt for a rug;) The space is for grilling and lounging and staring at the lake. I'm also experimenting with my 'green thumb' – it's a long shot;)

    Yes, it is true that there are so many choices for wonderful outdoor furniture these days and thanks for sharing the beautiful outdoor pictures.
