Gorgeous outdoor spaces


For all of those who are itching to go outside like me, here’s a little eye candy to tide us over! Our backyard and patio need some serious love, but until we recover from our wedding expenses, I’ll just have to live with gathering inspiration until we can start making improvements.

Going the extra mile with a space doesn’t need to take much effort. You can add a little touch to one room or space to change the entire feel or look of it. Not all additions make a huge impact, but here are a few that I think really go far…

A fire pit cover makes this space multi-functional! It gets the outside patio a great table space when it’s not in use but also a great gathering spot when you lift the table and turn up the heat!

A bookcase next to the tub. This is a brilliant idea for those who might not have storage space in their bathroom otherwise! Even a skinny built in can maximize the storage in the bathroom as well as make it look cozy.

Pull out some of those great decor pieces that give your kitchen a little personality without a lot of clutter. This is great for small kitchens that might not have the storage space for decor on the counter.
