I Like This! Fresh Air Rooms.

Outdoor Living!

The lattice detail here is stunning...I think sitting out here one would get the feeling of being in a tree house with all the lush greenery.

This shady loggia was nothing more than a walkway from the house to the backyard. Now, notice the antique iron lampposts and metal arbor give these vines a place to grow and create a roof for this outdoor room. Concrete pavers in two colors created this checkerboard floor that contrasts nicely wi th the striped fabric on the chairs. I love all the flowers in the pots, wouldn't this be a great setting to sit and enjoy your morning coffee?

  3. Dear Renae,

    thanks for encouraging my son to do the lawn while I'm away, I'll keep my fingers crossed he'll pass.

    I just love these check floors, you can find them handpainted on wood in white/grey here in Sweden.
    Tremendous work in linseed oil.

    Blessings to you,

  4. Renae,
    I love these outdoor spaces.
    I wish we could sit in either one and share a cup of tea!

  5. Absolutely stunning, Renae! Loved your travel story - I didn't know you were a cellist!! How wonderful!

  6. Makes me want to finish our outdoor projects. I could so easily see myself in either of these rooms (love the 2nd pic....reminds me of New Orleans)!
