With summer approaching quickly, we can’t help but enjoy the beautiful outdoors. This is the perfect time to start decorating your outdoor living space so you can enjoy it on the most perfect of days. If you need inspiration on outdoor décor ideas, look no further. We’ve put together a list of some of our favorite outdoor spaces that could even double as a perfect staycation.

Rustic Outdoor Dining

Don’t be afraid to invite everyone over with an outdoor space like this. This rustic grand table is a perfect touch to a room that could easily be thought of as being indoors. With its summer kitchen, fireplace and TV, we love this charming outdoor dining room.

Outdoor Kitchen Skills

Summertime is the perfect time to show off your skills as a grill master. Outdoor kitchens like this are a great addition for entertaining large crowds. We also can’t get past the fact that the granite countertops in this outdoor kitchen match wonderfully with the surrounding flooring and siding.

Pergola Perspective

Pergolas can frame an outdoor space wonderfully and if you add some white curtains, you could easily add a softer, romantic feel to the space. Could you imagine how cozy this area will look once the fire pit gets going?

Fireside Chats

The fact that this outdoor space has a roof and walls leading you to a view of the backyard makes it one of our favorites. The idea of dinner and chats by the fireplace during those summer nights makes this unique area a must-have.

Courtyard Boldness

This red umbrella’s pop of color in this Mediterranean courtyard offers such a bold taste to a delightful walkway. Walk along the path and we’re sure it’d almost feel like you’ve escaped to a faraway European village.

Poolside Fun

Nothing sounds better on a hot summer day than a dip in the pool.  The contrast of the deep blue water compared to the home’s bright exterior makes it a perfect spot for a staycation.

Garden Living

Picture drinking your morning coffee or sitting down with friends in this garden. It’s a perfect setting for a relaxing time. We especially love how the herringbone brick path leads to a charming fire pit you can enjoy on those cooler evenings.
