Come summer time and outdoor spaces become an extension of our homes – patios are abuzz with alfresco soirees, terrace spaces encourage one to stretch out and view the constellations in the clear summer skies, the porches furnished with rocking chairs make for the perfect spot to rock oneself to sleep in the gentle evening breeze and the garden landscape studded with glorious color makes for a perfect setting for an afternoon tea party! Whatever may be the reason, my heart refuses to stay indoors and looks for every possible excuse to enjoy what the outdoors has to offer. I recently spotted these two gorgeous spaces on Elle Décor that had me smitten at the very first glance. Part of a sprawling Florida home, the simplicity of design just stole my heart. The only thing missing in the patio setting that features the antique Spanish lanterns and the custom made banquette sporting comfy cushions is some wonderful margaritas!
Look at this view! The terrace of the home overlooks the Gulf of Mexico. Absolutely love the global vibe to this space - Syrian bone-inlaid furniture and colorful Suzanis and kilims infuse the space with the right amount of color and pattern. To take a tour of the entire home click here.
Have a wonderful day!
