Put down the design magazines and shut off HGTV. These amazing outdoor living spaces from bloggers are some of the best I’ve seen. I can tell you from experience that bloggers are some of the hardest working people I know. It takes tons of time and energy to pull off a space that looks effortless. Aside from supportive spouses, most bloggers that I know are working alone, there aren’t any design assistants behind the scenes (unless pets count).
This first space looks like a dream. That table with the chippy paint, the wood awning, string lights and a view that looks like it goes on forever.
With gorgeous gray/blue shingles and a hydrangea garden to die for, this looks like it should be in a Hamptons magazine.
The beautiful house in the background and those enormous arborvitaes are the perfect backdrop for an extra long table and some simple string lights.
This little setting is simple perfection.
If you’re looking for gardening inspiration, this is one blogger you need to check out. His gardens are truly spectacular.
A porch swing on its own is always beautiful, but I love how they took this one up a notch with those big rope hangers. I am also really obsessed with those shutters.
If you love floral arranging, you need to visit this next blog. Whenever I think she can’t outdo herself with her floral arrangements, she does.
You may remember Emily Henderson from HGTV, but did you know she has a blog too?
This blue and white porch has just the right mix of plants, chippy paint, and furniture to create the most serene outdoor living space.
These bloggers take outdoor living to another level, don’t they?
Speaking of working hard, I’ll be taking a little time off from the blog to catch up on a few things. I’ll be back after the Fourth of July holiday, I hope yours in a safe and happy one!
