Guest Post by Annette TatumRelaxing Outdoor Environments for Summer
As summer approaches the warm air, fresh scents, and sunlit colors draw us out of our homes, and we dream of creating more ways to spend our time outside. This blog is dedicated to exploring ways to create relaxing outdoor environments, giving each of us more reasons to enjoy the luxury of the outdoors this summer.
In Your Own Backyard
Create a place to rest in your own backyard. Bring a daybed outside adorned with light bedding and floral pillows, as you find yourself relaxing with a book, enjoying a nap, or an afternoon snack.
An Outdoor Workspace
What a wonderful place to open your mind and stimulate your creativity? Bring some paintings outdoors and set up a table for you to work, think, or entertain...a great place to invoke interesting conversations!
Escape to a Yurt!
A yurt is provides an exotic way to enjoy the outdoors, while keeping cool in the shade creating the perfect place to unwind, meditate, stretch, think...or simply flip through a few pages of a magazine while you forget about "real life" for awhile...
Resort-StyleThere's no need to plan a summer vacation if your own home feels like a resort. Take inspirations from your favorite luxury hotels and travel destinations, and then create your own place of escape. Dress up your patio furniture with vibrant, comfortable cushions, and extend living spaces to open to a patio or pool setting. A lovely place for happy hour!
