Oudoor Garden Inspirations for Outdoor Living

I can never get enough of gorgeous outdoor inspirations - especially when
there's a gorgeous garden and greenery to go with it.  Isn't the backyard
above just gorgeous?

The white curtains in the background are so romantic in the summer breeze.
The lavender fabric is also a perfect color to complement the surrounding

Indoor lamps really make this gorgeous garden setting look polished and chic.

Chips and salsa on a barrel...

Colored glass vases make this garden pop.  At night, all you
need are some tea lights in the vases for it to give a soft
magical glow with color.

The fabric makes this dining area so cozy.  Candles really
top it off.  I can just imagine what this would look like at

What a great difference just a pink runner an pink flowers can make!

Love the pillows on the hammock - it really creates
a pop of color and gives the scene an exotic look.

I love that idea of scattering colored vases throughout the garden. I am going to try that one myself.

I love the airiness and openess that has been achieved here.

It is a shame that if you were to pull all of the moveable elements into the home... that it wouldn't translate properly. Whenever I have seen a greenery focus garden type room, it just ends up feeling creepy and claustrophobic.
