10 inspirational outdoor spaces

This is the time of year when we love to spend as much time outside as possible. It is easy to neglect your backyard during the winter, but now that the weather is nice it is the perfect time to spruce up your outdoor space. Even if you have no plans to redo the landscaping at your house, we hope these outdoor spaces will inspire you to freshen up your backyard.

Give Your Outdoor Space Focus

Unless you have a great view, it is nice to have a point of focus in your backyard. An outdoor fireplace, a fire pit or even a pretty tree can give your outdoor space focus. We love the clean lines and simplicity of this space centered around the fireplace.

Create an Outdoor Living Room

If you create a space that is stylish and comfortable, you will find that you use it a lot more. Try to create a spot where you would enjoy reading a book, having a cup of coffee or cocktail.

Use Different Textures and Materials

We love to mix textures and materials in an outdoor space. Concrete, wood, tile, brick, stone and metal can easily work well with any style of landscaping.

Keep it Natural

You don’t need fancy furniture or an intricate landscape plan to create a beautiful outdoor space. We love the simple wooden deck and table used in this lush, green backyard.

Create Social Seating

Using benches on the edge of deck or yard can create a seating option that is ideal for entertaining. We love how these spaces would work perfectly for morning coffee or appetizers and cocktails.

Paint it Black

We love black and white interiors and their is no reason that you cannot extend this color scheme outside! An old shed or a basic wall instantly becomes more glamorous and sophisticated with a coat of black paint.
