Hi again, domino!  Right about now, you might say that a good part of the country is anxiously awaiting the first signs of spring and the end to this very cold and very snow-laden winter.  These last few days….it appears the end may be in sight!  So, in that spirit, and to motivate you to hold on tight for what surely awaits, I thought I'd share some images from some of my favorite outdoor living spaces. Whatever your style, there is something here for everyone– from more tradititional to fun, flirty and modern, these spaces don't disappoint.  With spirited fabrics, great texture and accessories, I hope you'll be inspired to create some fantastic outdoor spaces…once the snow thaws. For those of you in the warmer parts of the country (or the world!), you get a head start…..Take a look:
At this extraordinary location, in horse country, with beautiful grounds and a traditional house, I love how designer Robert Rizzo of Cobble Court Interiors, created these wonderful and inviting outdoor spaces– clean and classic yet with a touch of whimsy, too. Feels like Spring to me!

Everyone agrees that designer Terri Jaffe has a great eye and this space certainly shows it.  This modern outdoor patio is fresh and fun.  A perfect entertaining space with lots of seating and a great view. The bright blue stones are a brilliant visual pop!

Talk about outdoor dining?  When I came across this table, nestled under a garden-side pergola, I couldn't help but smile. With the faux bois table base and the rustic chandelier, it was easy to image a dinner party running late into the evening in this lush and beautiful place.

And finally, last but certainly not least, THIS poolhouse.  SO CHIC and stunning. Functional and fabulous.  I go back to these images time and again…and hope you will too.  Amazing design by Sarah Kaplan/Dovecote and impeccable styling by Ronny Carroll/Dovecote.  Ready to jump right in!
