Even though it is still spring, summer is just around the corner and it’s got me thinking about the outdoors. If I could, I would spend every day outside, taking in the sun and enjoying the longer days. My favourite thing is ending a wonderful summer’s day with a barbecue and embracing the cool evenings sitting by an outdoor fire. If spending the summer at home, why not create an outdoor oasis and feel like you’re on holiday every day?
These pictures of beautiful outdoor spaces will inspire you to create your own summer retreat. It’s never too early to start getting ready for summer! If you don’t have a pool, why not add a water fountain to create a serene environment? And if a built-in fireplace is out of the question, go for a fire pit!
Below are some of my summer must-have items to help you create that backyard oasis!
These pierced porcelain hurricanes from West Elm will create a glow when the sun has set and the temperature drops.
You can’t have the perfect summer retreat without a great swimsuit and cover-up to take you from day to night!
