Outdoor Rooms to Dream About

I wish I had a covered outdoor area or an area I could convert from an indoor space to an outdoor space instantly. Really, an indoor-outdoor room. 

It would be the perfect setting to entertain, read a book, relax after a swim (if I had a pool), take in the view or do absolutely nothing! I have come across many pictures of inspiration, some to just dream about.

One would be hard-pressed to pick a favorite. Which one would you pick, given a choice?

Thank you for stopping by; please do check back often.


  1. So many great choices Lisa! Location-wise, I would have to pick one of the beach "rooms," but I love the white couch with the colorful pillows. I also like the 2nd photo of the simple brick fireplace. It's a classic and reminds me of the home where I grew up.

  2. Great minds think alike because we have the same background pattern on our blOgs!

    I seriously couldn't pick One. I do love the asian inspired room that looks like it is literally floating in water. The infinity pool would be rather nice too. I am also drawn to the simple porch swings with the ocean in the background. Really though I would take any one of those rooms :)

  3. If I had my choice...I'd probably go w/ something like that second to last one with a huge sectional that I could everyone just lounge on and a simple table for drinks and snacks...thanks for letting me daydream for a little bit...:)

  4. Wow! I wish I had a room like that extension of my living or dining room! These spaces are gorgeous!

  5. What I'd give to have an outdoor room like any one of these spaces...

  6. beautiful beautiful! i'm dying for some useable outdoor space... hubs and I have been dreaming up some things lately. However, gutters and dead trees are going to take the cake over a beautiful screened porch. whamp whamp

  7. What beautiful rooms. They are so beautiful and relaxing to look at. New follower from Friday hop. Hope you could stop by and follow back.

  8. Hi this is somewhat of off topic but I was wanting to
    know if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code
    with HTML. I'm starting a blog soon but have no coding expertise so I wanted to get guidance from someone with experience. Any help would be enormously appreciated!

  10. My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
    I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.
    But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using WordPress on
    several websites for about a year and am worried about switching
    to another platform. I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.
    net. Is there a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it?
    Any kind of help would be greatly appreciated!
