Such a tease. Mother Nature gave us a couple gorgeous mild days lately which got everyone thinking about being outside – and then, just like that, we’ll be down to the 40s this week. (And a nod to our Northern readers – we know that doesn’t sound too terribly cold to you, but after you’ve lived in Atlanta for a while, anything below 50 degrees qualifies as “wintery”!) So, hurry up, Spring – we’re ready for you.
We’ve been itching to get out to our porches, patios and pergolas (or enjoy a meal al fresco or walk the fun Beltline) but while we wait for warmer temps to come our way, we’ve been stalking our fave publications and Insta for inspiration for those chic outdoor spaces that we’ll spend hours dreaming about. Take a peek:
Here in Atlanta, we’ve got the porch thing nailed down. The key is to treat is like any other room so it has comfortable seating and all the creature comforts that an interior room would have.
We’re not sure why but food and drink taste even better when they’re being enjoyed as the sun is going down or under the stars.
So, until Mother Nature decides to play fair, you better zip up that parka and keep dreaming! What’s your favorite kind of outdoor space? We’d love to hear.
