Some gorgeous images of outdoor spaces...
This is actually a great time of year to start scheming plans for your own outdoor space, as much of what you'd like to add is probably on sale. Speaking from experience, it takes a long time to find both well-priced, well-designed pieces for an outdoor space. We wasted an entire summer (and a portion of early Fall too) searching for things that met this criterion. I wish we'd thought of it months earlier (around Christmas) so we could've enjoyed the summer season a little more.
