Beautiful Backyards and Terraces to Jump Start Spring

With Spring just around the corner, I want to encourage you to start thinking about enjoying your home's outdooor space again (or for the first time!). Even if you're living in an apartment with only a small patio, you can still decorate the space and enjoy the fresh outdoor air while at home. One of my absolute favorite things to do on a warm, sunny day is dine outdoors, and these homes are certainly equipped for al fresco dining and enjoying the warm weather in style.

Isn't this Australian estate and garden beautiful? It really does have a grand appearance along with perfect landscaping. It's quite impressive to say the least. I would host outdoor dinner parties all the time if I lived here!

For those of you with smaller spaces, there are so many inspirational patio and terrace designs that maximize limited outdoor space. The key is to bring in an abundace of potted plants to create a magical ambiance on your very own patio. Take a look at how these small patios have been decorated to maximize the home's outdoor space.

March is the perfect time to begin sprucing up your patio or backyard so that you can fully enjoy your outdoor space when warmer weather arrives. 

So, now that you've been inspired, what can you do to improve your own home's outdoor space?
