the great outdoors

When you live somewhere as beautiful as Jackson it is hard not to constantly want to be out enjoying the fresh air. The sun shining this morning is leaving me hopeful that this weekend I will be able to just that! I love outdoor spaces that have been given the same design attention as any interior rooms.

I especially love the addition of unique light fixtures and defining the space with billowy curtains.

These spaces from interior designer, Kristen Hutchins, are wonderful inspiration for this look.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend enjoying the great outdoors.


What great spaces! I agree, love outdoors rooms that are treated like interiors. I did a post this week on Outbuildings that have a similar concept. Have a great weekend!
I have a spot in the back of my yard, that is just waiting for a open air pool house/tea house/tree house....

A place where the front porch gets a view from the back, with a little more privacy. Just me and the squirrels and a maybe a mouse.

Oh the spaces are amazing! Love the first pic with the curtains and the chandelier! I think being outside is one of my favorite summer project is turning the shed into a workroom, get away for me complete with french doors! But I think I just might have to add some curtains too now! Hope you have a lovely weekend...outside.

These are truly beautiful outdoor rooms. However, the first photo is designed by Ruthie Sommers and styled by Krista Wooten. There has been a mistake here. Kristen Hutchins was not part of the first photo.
I also love seeing outdoor spaces that have been considered just as much as inside. If only I had a deck or a porch or a terrace!
