5 Ideas to Create Your Outdoor Oasis

With the warm weather here the windows are open wide as well as the back door which leads to a small patio that is transformed into an extension of our living space.  A round dining table chairs allows us to dine outside surrounded by herb pots and flowering plants.  I have added a small side table that functions as a potting station and serving table for dinners.  During the day the dogs use the space to stretch out and bask in the sun. There is also room for a lounge chair which is perfect for reading or catching a nap.   This outdoor living space is like an added room in the summer!

Be it a small patio, large terrace or manicured garden, our outdoor living spaces have become extensions of our homes.  We use it in our daily living, to relax, play, cook and entertain.
