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'm sitting on the floor in our empty house writing the last blog post from the West Midlands. All our stuff is on its way to South Yorkshire and tomorrow the unpacking starts!

Last week I started this new series, which is a seasonal one on the blog, with a neutral outdoor living area. This week, however, I'm feeling colours. This charming reading nook on a terrace somewhere in Spain has my heart beating faster. I love that pinkish coral shade of the textiles and the contrasting stripes. The pergola with all that greenery looks magical. I wouldn't mind spending my day there with a book and refreshments.

I had to show you the space from another angle, through the bedroom window.
The house, designed by architects Lluís Auquer and Ferran Prats, and interior designer Pepe Cortés, was featured in El Mueble. Last year I pinned its outdoor seating area and in this post I just had to include the gorgeous dining area, which has me swooning.

Because of the moving I'm taking a blog break until Monday. Have a wonderful week!

  2. Oh Lisa, outdoor living is really a catch word today - it's almost 30 degrees C here and I would like to skip all my to-dos and just spend the day out in the sun. Or in the patio of this Spanish dream retreat...well, happy day my friend!

  4. Can I join you on that terrace for refreshments? We're having wonderful weather and last evening was spent on a terrace, but not as charming as this one. :)
