Outdoor spaces...

Hope you all had a great weekend. I have just enjoyed a few days off last week for the school holidays. Needless to say that it rained nearly the whole time we were away! However, it was wonderful to have a small break before the start of the end of year rush (which I feel has already begun). This time of year I am always inspired by outdoor spaces and have been choosing fabric to recover an outdoor lounge setting I recently acquired. I cannot wait until its ready to be enjoyed this Summer - I shall take some photo's when it returns from my upholsterer.

Loving these two outdoor spaces and the splash of colour.

That second space is gorgeous. I'd love a verandah like that to enjoy our lovely Spring and Summer.

Can't wait to see your outdoor setting.

Dear Amanda,
What beautiful outdoor spaces....your country really lends itself to verandahs, swimming pools and barbeque areas. I am feeling a little envious that you are into the beautiful Spring season and we are into the Autumn.... although, I really love the Autumn and, we have had our Spring and Summer.
Enjoy the warm weather and all that it brings. XXXX

Looking forward in seeing the finished result in what looks to be a gorgeous seating area, hope my out door area will look like that when I finish my house build :))

Neat photos. I liked the patio roof too. I made one of those years ago and the whole thing was painted a bright red.
