13 Outdoor Spaces to Inspire

Hello, I hope your weekend was a good one! I’m finally getting started on some outdoor projects. We got a late start this year due to the bedroom makeover but I’m all in now. I’ve found a ton of amazing outdoor inspiration online lately. So much so that I have to share it with you here so we can admire it together, and hopefully find a few ideas of our own to use!

I think I love this one more for the amazing building, this garage, and patio is a stunner! Architectural detail works outside as well as it does inside.

Life goals: have an amazing hydrangea garden. I’m actually working on this already but it’ll take a few years before it really gets going.

Speaking of hydrangeas (which are my favorite), look at these amazing purple hydrangeas surrounding the rustic front porch. Love!

Going vertical in small spaces is another trick that works well both indoors and out. I love this idea for covering the side of a building that may not be too pretty on its own.

Same idea, different execution;  use a simple pot and an obelisk.

I love to swim and even though this yard looks to be on the small side, it still contains a beautiful pool and patio.
