Great Outdoor Living Spaces

Great Outdoor Living Spaces

The Summer Edition:

I am thrilled to be invited to join such a talented group of bloggers to showcase our great outdoor living spaces on this summer blog hop. Join me on a home tour, and investigate some of my favorite outdoor spaces. Then hop on over to the next blog participant on the list at the bottom of the post. Once you have made the circle and get back to me you will have seen it all. I know you guys are going to love this I know I sure did, tons  inspiration and unique styles.Many of you may not know this, but outdoor living spaces were a huge consideration when purchasing our new home. Since we both work from home, and spend our days together 24/7.  We wanted our home to be a retreat full of resort style of living. Basically, a full time day to day vacation home. We love being surround by nature, lots of trees, lakes, and wild life, which made choosing this house plan easy. To us the more outdoor living spaces the better.  The first thing we added to our home was a rotating tangle proof flag pole, and flag which stays up year round. Our neighborhood has a lovely small town Americana street scape, and several of our neighbors have also chose to do the same thing.  No worries, we meet all the federal laws and regulations, as it is illuminated after dark with our landscape lighting.Currently we have upgraded a few pieces from our builders basic landscape package, which were holly bushes, to heavenly scented gardenia bushes. You can also see we placed a few large focal rocks into the planter bed to add texture and visual interest.  We also added a fringed leaf Japanese Maple, which is one of my absolute favorite type of specimen trees.  Hopefully, over the years this tree will become a beautiful focus piece as you walk up the sidewalk to the porch, and continue to give us just enough front door privacy with out block all the natural light.
I have alway dreamed of a rocking chair front porch and I was able to  have two rocking chairs for sunning, and sipping lemonade on those hot summer days.  I picked up these cute pillow that say “Welcome Y’all” in metallic gold script to make those rocker just a little bit more comfortable.  As you make you way around toward the back yard can see we have added several plants via two hanging baskets. The hooks were custom made by a local blacksmith I found at a festival and look like a vine growing right out of the ceiling. We have added in some lush Canna Lilies which have not bloomed yet and you can also see where we relocated those holly bushes to there new home.This is our new patio installed at the beginning of this year. You may remember the project from DIY Paver Patio post in April. If not click the link for more DIY information. We have finally got the hammock back out for relaxing in the shade with a good book, or as my husband prefers to rest after mowing the yard, which is quite a hill.

I have added the amazing pillows that I got for a total steal of $5 a piece at Hobby Lobby last year, at end of season. I figure anything that catches a lot of weather I do not want to put a lot of money into it, as it just won’t last. So most of my outdoor items are bargain basement end of season sale items that look pretty but don’t break the bank. If they get ruined I toss them and get new next end of season.You also may remember this is same location we added the DIY Vertical Herb Garden(link to DIY post). The herbs love being under the deck with filtered light, which keeps them from melting in the hot Georgia sun. As you can see in the distance I am still patiently waiting on my Limelight Hydrangea to bloom, they are almost there. Just past the hydrangea is another covered porch with screen porches above.

This is a look at the deck which is above the patio area, directly above the hammock and herb garden area. We consider this is our sundeck and grilling porch. Home to our Big Green Egg, this is the area where most of the entertaining is done while we are grilling out. As you can see one of my kitties, Ralphy, has made himself at home on our outdoor sectional. Fun fact, the succulent garden located on the coffee table is actually planted in an antique, 3 loaf, wonder bread baking pan from the old wonder bread factory. I found it several months ago on an antiquing expedition. As you look across off the deck you can see our outdoor fireplace patio where. This is where we are more likely to have evening cocktails and chat around the fire. The patio can be used anytime of year since the fireplace provides warmth in the cooler months.  Now you can see why this patio makes the perfect spot to kick back, relax and sip on a delicious libation like this Simple Strawberry Sangria cocktail. Be sure to (<- link) over to get the recipe located out of our Recipe Box. I promise you  they are so refreshing and delicious especially this time of year. This is the final stop on our ground level outdoor living area and it contains one of my favorite pieces. This custom made Dodge Ram bench, was purchased for my husband to commemorate the old red Dodge Ram he drove in high school. An amazing guy named TJ Parten of Parten’s Project custom made this one of kind tailgate bench for us. I tell you, it is perfection. It has a super deep seat to curl up on, it fits perfectly in this space between our columns, and it makes my hubby smile when he looks at it.Now remember I said outdoor living space was high on our priority list so here is the first of two screened in porches. This porch is located off the main floor by way of the JENRON office. We are still developing this area but so far we have painted the ceiling haint blue, added edison bulb lighting and a huge osculating fan.  We also made this fun window box using an actual old antique window. We also found that fun wood craved pitch fork on am antique trip with friends at The Screen Door in Asheville, NC . Which is one of my favorite antique stores on the planet.Our second screen porch is located on the second floor, directly off the Master Suite. This particular porch was featured in 2017 Spring One Room Challenge, hosted by House Beautiful and Calling It Home.  We created a Southern Style Sleeping Porch  (link to post)for the full timeline for this 6 week project. By far the Southern Style Sleeping Porch  is one of my favorite areas to spend time. I get asked all the time “do you sleep out there?” and the answer is yes we do. On pretty nights when there is a breeze, we grab a glass of vino, and sit out there. We listen to crickets, katydids, and tree frogs. We watch the fireflies in the moonlight. Looking for shooting stars, all the while realizing we have a very blessed and amazing life. I hope you guys enjoyed to the outdoor tour of my home.

  49. Nice weblog here! I love all the pictures and your home looks so pretty. Your website loads up very fast by comparison! What web host are you using? I desire my website loaded up as quickly as yours lol Thanks

  50. Incredible! Love the outdoor spaces and excellent choice of colors! Your photos really pop and some are magazine worthy. You should apply to have them featured in Better Homes and Gardens.

  51. Howdy! This article was a joy to read! Looking through this article I like the way you designed a summer home tour of all your spaces, with extra advice on making them homey! Thanks for sharing!

  52. I’m really impressed with your writing skills and also with the layout on your weblog. Is this a paid theme or did you customize it yourself? Anyway keep up the excellent quality writing, it is rare to see a nice blog like this one nowadays most are just trying to sell your stuff, your feels like a home magazine.

  53. I am packing my things, and shipping to your sleeping porch! Your home is so beautiful and the land is gorgeous too. Is all of Georgia that pretty? I never knew. Well great blog and I love all of your outdoor spaces and of course that impressive sleeping porch. Great idea!

  54. I must admit, I’m impressed, seldom do I encounter a blog that is educative, interesting, and without a doubt beautiful. You’ve hit the nail on the head! I’m very happy I found this during my hunt for outdoor patio ideas.

  55. Your garden spaces are gorgeous! You have so many nooks to hide away in, with a cup of tea and watch the world go by. I do hope you have the time to enjoy these spaces. If it were me I would be hulled up on that screen porch all day, just add a don not disturb sign to the door. Good job 🙂

  56. Hello! Someone in my book club shared this website with us, so I came to give it a look I’m definitely loving the information and I’m bookmarking for later. I will be tweeting this to all of my followers! Exceptional blog and brilliant design style, could not be more impressed, kudos!

  57. How you even though about installing a outdoor kitchen? It seems like your home has everything else but an outdoor kitchen. I am on the fence about installing one, they seem so expensive and here in PA we can only use it 6 months out of the year. Do you have any thoughts on the subject? I would love to hear your opinion on the topic.

    • Hi Edward we though long and hard about an outdoor kitchen. Here in the south we could use it almost year round. We do have a BIG Green Egg, that my husband loves, and we have future plans to build a custom table for it. As far as an full outdoor kitchen, if you grilling area is deeper in your yard, or on a lower level where retrieving items from you regular kitchen would be difficult, if probably makes sense. Our grill is literally directly off our chef’s kitchen, so it seemed at bit repetitive, to put all the same things 10 feet away. Plus I wanted to save that moola for other projects.

  58. Great article! We are linking to this particularly great content on our website.Keep up the great writing!

  59. Your outdoor spaces are some of the best I have seen. Reasonably priced, not over decorated, and places the everyday person could live in. How is that your site has not got viral, and your stuff end up featured in magazines? Maybe I should pass some links along to those in the know. Keep you ears open I have a feeling good things are heading your way 🙂

  60. Your pictures are alluring and provocative, I want to see more. Honestly you could get away with writing less and take a ton more pictures, detailed close up shots, because a picture is worth a thousand words. I look forward to seeing you make it big, followers around the world. Good luck my friend.

  61. Great info and lucky for me I discovered your blog by chance (stumbleupon) I have book marked it for later!

  62. It’s nearly impossible to find experienced people on this topic of outdoor living, but you seem like you know what you’re talking about! Thanks for being an expert.

  63. Oh my goodness what a beautiful yard, but my true favorite is that sleeping porch. How on earth did you dream up something so luxurious? I need one pronto, with a glass of vino and a good book. Enjoy you serenity, and keep up the great posts.

  64. I am so hoping for a season home tour I have heard that you do Christmas like no other! Can’t wait to see the holiday edition.

  65. Beautiful plantings and vistas from your home. I really like I got a complete home tour for free. You have a lovely space and added just enough to make it look real and not staged. Thanks for being you.

  66. There is so much to look at with your outdoor spaces I feel like you just glossed over some major projects. I believe I saw some links so I will liking to see if it leads me to more outdoor blog goodness.

  67. Ahaa, it’s pleasant view of your outdoor spaces I imagine conversations and camp fires all around your property. I have read all the blogs on the hop, so at this time I am commenting here my final stop. Great job and so glad I found your blog.

Thanks, I appreciate it!

    • Thanks Sarah!!! Unfortunately in this hot GA heat I’m just trying to keep all of my plants well watered and alive. July and August are pretty rough on plants down here.

  98. Love so many of these spaces! I can’t wait to revamp ours next year. I loved this so much I scheduled oodles of pins of your great pictures!

    • Thank you so much Lisa, the more pins the better 🙂 I keep hearing that they can go viral, which I keep my fingers crossed, and hope to experience. 🙂

    • Thank you Megan, and I really appreciate your feedback on the website too. It is always helpful to know if my readers can navigate the site with ease, and if they like the layout. I love to get insight back on the actual page set up.:)

    • Thank you, you are so sweet. We have only been in this house for 2 years in August and when we built it the yard was very basic so we made a lot of useable space.

    • Thank you!!! I think good things come to those who wait, I waited 16 years for this for this house, and I love it. Your beautiful home will be on the horizon soon, and it will be worth the wait 🙂

  99. Your outdoor set up looks so tranquil and cozy. Beautifully setup. There’s nothing more relaxing than sitting outside and just enjoying the view. Pictures are amazing!

    • Thank you Carissa, I agree we love our outdoor spaces. I have tried to set up specific areas for all times of the year. The fireplace in fall and mild winters, the deck for grilling year round, and the screened porches with fans for spring, summer and fall weather permitting. Since we are in the foothill of the north GA mountains we have pretty woodland views with a creek, and a small fishing lake view.

  100. OMG! I wish I had just ONE of these outdoor areas…these are absolutely beautiful! Makes me want to run to Hobby Lobby and grab those cute pillows. We have such bad humidity and mosquitos where we live I always want to decorate outdoors and then don’t because it’s miserable outside!

    • Thank you Julie we love the outdoors and also have a ton of humidity here in GA. Right now the mosquitoes here are vicious, because of all the out of character rain we have been having. So I am very grateful for screened in porches to protects from them, and lots of ceiling fans for that heat and humidity…LOL.

  101. Such beautiful ideas! That vertical herb garden really caught my eye. I’d love that on my back porch.

  102. I will be honest, your cozy looking outdoor spaces has made me want to take a little afternoon nap in the sunshine! You have a beautiful outdoor settings, my favorites are the fireplace area and the sleeping porch!

  103. You have so many fab outdoor spaces! I love how you have a use for each one and that super cool dodge bench is fab-u-lous! And I MUST have a sleeping porch. Drool!!

  104. Jennifer, I don’t know where to begin! I love it all! You have such an amazing space and done a great job transforming it. All the little touches, you really have thought of everything. I particularly like the vertical herb garden and the fireplace

  105. This is so darn cool. I love the bench and the vertical garden. The porches are the bomb! Reminds me of “real” farm houses in Arkansas. There was alway a screened porch and that is where we kids hung out. Love it all!

    • Thanks Pam, we love the screened porches, they are just a fantastic extension of our house surrounded by nature.

  106. I love your patio fireplace so much! I’ve been trying to figure out where we can build one. Love all of the fun vintage finds! Your home is so lovely!

  107. Jennifer, your outdoor spaces are amazing!!! You have definitely nailed that resort style living. I love that huge outdoor sectional…I need to save up for one for our deck, I wonder what the hubby would think of that, lol!!

    • Oh my gosh he would love it. My friends come over and just lounge on it. It is so comfy and versatile, you can break it apart to make individual seating too!!
