As we trudge through the last (very cold) weeks of winter, I can’t help but think ahead to spring and summer. If the words “snow day” aren’t uttered again until next year, well, I am more than okay with it! But, in the meantime I am looking forward to beach trips, barbecues, and bike rides. With those warm, sunny thoughts in mind, lets look at some fantastic outdoor spaces!

This sleek veranda has fun pop of color and pattern with pillows by Trina Turk for Schumacher.

Martyn Lawrence Bullard used black and white textiles by Perennials to give this patio a classic look.

This airy outdoor dining room, created by Miles Redd, is in the Bahamas. I hope my invitation is in the mail!

This looks like the perfect spot to start working on my tan! Gorgeous trellis and quatrefoil fabrics from Windsor Smith Home for Kravet.

Cushions in Thomas Paul for Duralee spices up these cute little chairs by the fire pit.

What a serene water feature, off this simple terrace.

Outdoor kitchens make for a wonderful entertainment space. Fire up the grill!

Don’t have a backyard? This rooftop terrace is a gorgeous getaway.

This pool side patio is relaxing, with a cool exotic character.

To see more dreamy patios, porches and poolsides, cruise on over to our Outdoor Spaces board on Pinterest.

Here’s hoping that warmer weather arrives soon!
