Spring-like weather seems to have arrived in California (yay, except for the allergies!). Sunny skies and beautifully mild temps are hopefully here to stay after experiencing so much rain and snow in recent months. I'm not complaining (sorry east coast friends), but just acknowledging the fact that we Californians are not very accustomed to "weather". 😏
With spring in the air, and the impending summer months around the corner, there's no better time to share some exterior space concepts that have me inspired!
So much depth and texture packed in this minimal patio design. Love the black-framed doors, stone courtyard floors, and wooden-container-potted green plants!
How cool would it be to have an outdoor movie theater? I found this DIY tutorial if you're interested in building one.
Built-in bench seating around the fire pit - the perfect setting to enjoy a beautiful evening outdoors! I love the modern details of this outdoor patio design that doesn't require a lot of space.

This outdoor layout spoke to me since we have a (fig) tree located dab smack in the middle of a section in our backyard. I love how this space was designed around a tree, while having designated vignettes serve different functions!
Who needs chairs?! Love this modern bohemian take on an outdoor dining area that can fit plenty of people around the table - as long as you don't mind taking a seat on the textile-covered grass! Comfy pillows/cushions layered on rugs or blankets are the perfect (inexpensive) stand-in for actual chairs.
Here's to enjoying great outdoor living in hopefully beautiful spring and summer weather no matter where you live!
