Outdoor Rooms

Take a look at some beautiful "rooms" that just happen to be outdoors.  Fall has lots of potential for roasting marshmallows or hot dogs, bonfires, and for just spectacular evenings under the stars.

Dream a little with me ..


Adding things like lamps (above) and televisions (below) might not be practical year round, but it certainly enhances the feeling that this is just another room of the home.


Ditto for ceiling fans, light fixtures, and art.  Style the space, add plants. 
Sculptures and oversized accents like the ones below will not be lost in the openness of an outdoor room.
 Don't forget to outfit your outdoor furniture with outdoor pillows!

And don't forget you don't always have to go traditional with your outdoor furniture.  There are many wonderful options that are not your traditional wicker furniture.
I hope you are inspired to spend some time outdoors as we kick off this fall weekend.  Blessings to you!
