We have always enjoyed wraparound porches here in the South as an outdoor space.  A porch swing brings back nostalgic feelings of days gone by and creates a relaxing place to visit and sip iced tea.


Terrace areas complete with a cooking area are a big trend now.  Don't you love the architecture of the big hood surrounded by that beautiful blue and white tile? 


These doors that fold back completely create an indoor-outdoor space, perfect for entertaining.  



If opening up the entire wall  isn't possible, then large openings are a great way to invite people to the outdoors and to enjoy the views.



This rather formal terrace area is very eye-catching done in mixed textures and white.  The modern wing back chairs are gorgeous!


A fireplace or firepit seems to be in great demand.  I am seeing them being built all over our neighborhood.  What a wonderful place to sit and have a glass of wine or read during a crisp fall morning



I hope this sparked some interest in creating an outdoor living space in your home.


Thank you for reading!  Patti
