Ask The Designer: “What does your Dream Outdoor Relaxation Space Look Like?” 

What does your Dream Outdoor Relaxation Space Look Like? This weeks Ask The Designer featured Question comes from: Nicole Corr @ Green Isle Landscapes

So what does Nicole’s Dream Outdoor Relaxation Space Look Like?

NICOLE: “To be honest, my dream outside relaxation space looks very colorful and pretty much like a spring day, I love sitting under a Jacaranda tree watching it cast shadows over a soft lush green lawn, a lounge chair complete with feather cushions and my favorite ♥ read, oh and a glass of  ice-cold Pimms, with mint & lemonade. To be able to sit and unwind is a treat, bringing up a young family & our family businesses there is never much time these days for that R word.”

So what is my answer:

I am currently participating in the One Room Challenge, so I am luck to be creating my dream outdoor space right now. I have always wanted A Southern Style Sleeping Porch. A place to relax, surround myself with nature, enjoy the breeze and read a good book. My plan includes sea glass color theme, a full sized daybed for lounging, white sheers to blow in the breeze, and a fireplace. It is amazing at night when the crickets and tree frogs on the lake behind our house start to sing and the fireflies come out, I love how magical the space becomes.

    I think a outdoor kitchen would be nice I love to cook and it soothes me. It would be nice to cook outside and enjoy the nice weather on the cape, while we have it. We have been saving up to add one on but life situations keep shorting our funds each year, so maybe next year.

  23. Monica Ross

    I think my relaxation space would be a secrete room no on else in family knows about, kind of like a she shed but behind a fake wall somewhere, so I could go hide.

  24. Connie @Mountain Life

    I imagine loads of pillows, and soft cuddly blankets not matter what time of year it is, fresh pretty scented candles and a fuzzy pet nearby. If would be great if it was located in a scenic area like on the water or in the mountains, something with a nice view too, where there was a constant a breeze to blow a melodic set of wind chimes.

  25. Yes I agree that sound absolutely like the perfect place to relax and unwind. 🙂
