I'm Into That: The Backyard Edition

posted on: Friday, March 21, 2014

Maybe it's the promise of spring, because lord knows it's still cold and dreary here in Ohio, but I've been pinning backyard inspiration like crazy lately.

Brian and I have made it our summer mission to get our backyard in tip top shape this year so we can actually use it.

We would love to turn the windows in our breakfast room into french doors that open up to a small deck in our backyard.

We would also love to add a brick patio towards the back of our yard for either a dining space or a less formal seating arrangement.

Our yard has a lot of large trees so not ideal for a lush garden, but I love the idea of a free form sort of container garden.

 We love spending time outside and love having a large yard and a wrap around front porch.  We're really excited to take on a lot (if not all) of this project this year so we can really utilize our space more and entertain in our own backyard!


  1. Jacqui Getty's home continues to be one of my FAVES! I remember that post and really love how livable the outdoors feels in relation to the interior...the best backyard spaces make you feel like you're indoors! Great roundup!

    Thank you for visiting and hope to see you back for my latest sweets!

    Peace. Love. LOL!

  2. House and Homes on MISSBLANDINGS is my favourite, reminds me of the old films. Living in London these back yards make me so jealous, it's rare anyone has space for something like these there. Great blog post by the way!
