One of the main reasons I love living in Charlotte is that I can be outside most of the year. It's a luxury I don't take for granted- so much so, that I drink coffee each morning on our patio. It's peaceful, helps me feel grounded and ready to take on the day. An evening sitting and sipping rosé isn't so bad, either ;)
While I'm not one for a hike up a mountain or a paddle in a kayak, a dip in the pool and drink under an umbrella are more my speed. With Summer in full swing, here are some inspiring outdoor spaces that I'm loving. For more, check out my Pinterest board dedicated entirely to patios, porches, verandas, and more!
Crucial elements for creating your own outdoor escape? A well planned seating arrangement (for lounging, dining, or conversation), comfortable and cushioned furniture in lighter hues, and refuge from the sun. Ah, and if you're lucky enough- an outdoor fireplace, pool, or water feature! Coffee and/or wine optional (but encouraged.)
