outdoor living

Outdoor living is a temporary series on the blog that contains stylish outdoor living areas and sometimes al fresco table settings. It's about celebrating the season of summer!

I have been waiting to start this series and get the chance to focus on outdoor living areas - terraces, patios, loggias, decks, and balconies - in various styles from all corners of the world. In summertime these spaces, if we are lucky to have one, become such a huge part of our everyday life, at least for those who are homey and enjoy al fresco dining, and I always find it inspiring to see how people decorate them.

I'm starting in Saint Tropez in the south of France with this minimalist terrace, a Pierre Yovanovitch design, that I randomly picked from my folder. The exposed beams are a wonderful contrast to the clean lines of the house, and the gorgeous tableware is a delightful contrast to the neutral coloured and stylish furniture. And, yes, there is a pool and a Mediterranean Sea view.

  1. Oh my, I know I am just back from Israel, but I could go right through to this amazing outdoor space. Especially if I tell you that it's grey, wet and cold here!

    1. I know there is a 'From Place to Space' post waiting for me. It's been a little crazy week and I will be there with my morning coffee ;-)

  2. Now how did I miss this blog post? I believe this is going to be one of my favourite series on your blog. What a simple and minimalist terrace! I feel instantly relaxed. Thank you for this Monday day-dreaming, Lisa!

    1. I'm pretty excited about this one myself! I had to choose the images randomly because my folder is filled with gorgeous images that I've been waiting to share on the blog.
