Spring is coming. It officially arrives tomorrow, despite the weather man’s forecast. Never mind that though. The best way to distract from his dreary reports is to dream of the warmer days ahead. That means we can begin to look forward to spending more time outdoors and sprucing up our outdoor living spaces. What does yours look like?



Do you have a quiet shaded nook that you can escape to with a good book? Turning your shade garden into a backyard retreat is just the thing!



How about a covered space to watch a gentle summer rain or perhaps camp out on a warm evening? Adding a bed to your sun room might be perfect!



How about making your outdoors more attractive now, despite chilly temperatures? An outdoor fireplace might be just the thing to extend your outdoor living space further into the Spring and Fall, like the one seen here.



Even a simple rustic setting can be transformed into a welcoming space. A few simple chairs, pillows and scatter rugs can add a homey feel to any living space, both indoors and out.


How do you extend your living into the outdoors when the weather warms up?
