创造户外空间有时似乎有点难以抗拒，尤其是当你没有一个指定的空间或门廊，给你一个地方创造一个户外空间。A few years ago we dug out this corner of our yard,在我们的谷仓附近建了一个火坑。经过几个严冬之后，这个地区开始显得单调乏味，我们的价格不贵，quick fix,patio furniture had seen better days.所以你可以想象，有机会在我们的朋友的帮助下给这个空间一些急需的爱，我是多么激动。Joss与主要!!
We have a decent sized area,but it never felt like it was used to it's full potential before.充满了不匹配的家具，以及奇数和尾数部分，当然，有个火坑很不错，but it never really felt inviting.我首先解决的是座位问题。我们的旧塑料阿迪朗达克椅子在严冬中开裂褪色，new ones were on the top of my list.
These all weather chairs are not only durable,they fold in half,to make it easy to store for the winter months,真正有助于让空间感觉像是故意做的，而不仅仅是事后的思考。
I always express to readers and clients how valuable adding plants to an indoor space is,and yet somehow I seemed to overlook that in my outdoor space.I had fun adding a variety of planters to the space that really made it feel inviting.
I instantly fell in love with these concrete planters,my husband thought I was nuts,but fresh green plants POP once they are filled,我想这会在我的收藏中添加一段时间。
Adding awicker sofa给空间带来了真正的舒适因素。现在感觉更像是一个室外房间，而不仅仅是一个空间。我已经在那个舒适的地方计划了很多午睡。A perfect place to watch the kids play in the yard.
I added more concrete planters next to the sofa,伴随着柳条篮播种机,that came in a set of three.A great way to carry the look around the space,and keep things feeling cohesive.
我分享了Instagram前几天，有了一个潜入的山峰，关于这个空间的细节。Even though I kept to a monochromatic feel,I didn't want the space to feel lacking either.
两个夏天前我在一次庭院拍卖会上发现了这些旧的威士忌酒桶戒指，我马上就想用它们做些新的事情。I had enough to make 3 orbs,把它们铺在院子里。
Using different textures,I was able to add interest but still stick to the things my neutral self loved.Blending different green plants,with only white flowers,left room for the details to shine.
创造这个空间不仅仅是增加漂亮的东西，这是为了创造一种把所有人聚集在一起的氛围，fosters relationships,and provides the opportunity for more time together as a family.I know we can all look at things and categorize them as"只是一些东西”,虽然这是真的，当您创建一个空间,是温暖和邀请,you won't be able to keep your family out.当我完成最后一个细节的设定时，the seats were already full,and memories were being made.这是一起度过的一个夏天，在树下放松。
So lets take on more look at the Before & After :
