…Come sit outside with me…





Checking out a few outdoor living spaces…In Florida

What variety!
looking for ideas

Inspiration….you know the drill.

This one is from a home on the St. Lucie River
in Stuart Fl.
I love the hanging bench
the ebony floors…the ship lantern.

Port St. Joe FL...I painted our outdoor room ceiling same color
whoo hoo for me!

Another Gulf Coast home in FL...



A bit more south…In Miami.
Spanish influence
love the bench and chair and table.

The Moravian star lights are lovely

I had one in my bathroom in NY…


sold it in a garage sale for 15 clams.

Sigh.


I would like a glass of sweet tea

in this space.



I don’t even like sweet tea.

Another Southern Belle...in Alabama. Love those shutters.
I'm making some for our place

Palm Beach Florida…with a bit of Moroccan influence

Oh yeah - my boat is definitely afloat in the second AND the fourth ones, thankyouverymuch.

I LOVED the 1st one. And I liked each one for different reasons. Until I got to the last one. Then that one was IT!!! I would LOVE to do a space like that. I never would have tho't of using those colors together. It is festive & fun & just takes you away!

I liked many of them, but that porch with the shutters begs for me to jump into the computer and live there. I think part of me was supposed to be a southern gal instead of a chicago one.

Blue Muse said...

My boat is more than floating! They all are so inviting, but I must say the last three sang my heartsong, and why am I not surprised that San Miguel is a favorite of yours? It's our getaway hideaway! A truly special place.
Your posts always start my day off in the best way! Gorgeous!

Yep....feel hoo'd and woo'd and warm all over. Sighing against the grain, like reaction wood. I live in New England said the southerner... sounds wrong. Immoral. Love those shutters - looks like my childhood home. But now, years later, I need the sizzling color and relaxing heat of Miami to cure slow thawing joints.

the dark ebony wood floors contrasted by white with bright pillows and the morroccan lanterns and the bromeliad arrangement...thats my spin!
your posts continually inspire!

Renee Finberg said...

they are all so pretty, but the green shuttered 'porch'is where i see myself spending time.

Melissa said...

Gorgeous! I especially love the ones with the Moroccan or Spanish influence, but I'd be happy with any of them. Oh, and that color of green in the photo from San Antonio! Yes, please!

Denise @ A Room With A View said...

Palm beach with Moroccan floats my boat. Have been looking for a little table like that. Then again, just to have a beautiful patio even close to any one of these...sweet.

MissBliss said...

Love the pastel stripe pillows.... and definitely the luxuriant plants and space in San Antonio... what a great space... earthy and gorgeous!

Have a blissful day, Linda! ;)

Amy said...

I love me a wide and generously outfitted and welcoming front porch. Here in the gray, rainy Pacific Northwest they don't really have need nor seem to know what to do with a porch.

I can remember all my elders taking chairs out onto the lawn in the night during the summer when there were too many of them for either the porch or they were smoking. Fireflys and Grandpa's voice in that Kentucky drawl.

Farmgirl Paints said...

Love the hanging Moravian Star lights! Do you happen to know where to get those? I've been on a quest. I want to put one in my entry hallway.

Porchlight Interiors said...

Such gorgeous outdoor spaces & furniture! Very inspiring! Tracey xx

MetaJewelryDesign said...

I would love to come home everyday to any of these gorgeous retreats! So relaxing...

mary said...

Love them all - thanks for some bella inspiration

MyLittleHappyPlace said...

Think I'd take any of them, but I was married in San Miguel, so.... ;)

Mrs. B. Silly said...

I don't think I can pick a favorite, they are all so inviting. I'd like to grab a margarita and sit for a spell.

Ivy Lane said...

If I HAD a boat, I would float up to each of these homes and relax a while!!! :)

Stephanie said...

Outdoor living...the height of fabulous! That DOORS in the San Antonio space....ADORE them.

Ms. Tee said...

A big woo-hoo for you on the ceiling color and the shutters! I *heart* that ceiling color so much. :)

They are all gorgeous - but I think #2 and #5 are my absolute favorites. Sigh..

Joyce said...

I enjoyed my visit outside with you my friend! Who needs a boat when there is so many patios to sit back and relax. LOL...

Daisy Cottage said...

San Antonio, here I come!
;-)

They are all beautiful!


xo,
Kim

Lori E said...

Beautiful way to start my day. (and yours obviously you lucky duck)
San Antonio pics take the cake for me though. I love that warm palette.

Deborah said...

I love them all. My decorating style is either eclectic or bipolar...

Sharon said...

too beautiful to choose only one. I want them all:)

VictoriaArt said...

Love the southern belle and oh, what... I love them all! I love comfort and nature and colors, maybe the last one a little bit more, my boat floats gently down the dream!
