Outdoor Inspiration

Check out our feature over at the beautiful blog Statements in Fashion!

Have you ever been in a restaurant and just felt inspired for your own home? This summer we are hoping to tackle the great outdoors through the addition of a deck and landscaping. So I’ve started noticing the type of look I like when I’m out and about in hopes that I can create a similar feeling in our mini-back yard deck area. For instance at this restaurant…

I loved the strands of lights…

And the big pottery and wrought iron gate..

As well as these fun glass lights, surely over sized lanterns would give off a similar effect. Overall I think a modern deck with lots of mood lighting, a sleek sectional couch, and overflowing pots of flowers sounds about right.  Not to say that the charm of this old fashioned porch doesn’t appeal too.  Ack how does one decide? Who doesn’t love a rocker?!

So do tell. Do you love a classic porch space with wrought iron tables and flowering ferns, or a more contemporary area with fire pits and couches?
