I love the annual source books from Restoration Hardware. They give me great ideas for home decor. My favorites are the small spaces and the outdoor books. Now that our Backyard Renovation has started, they’re perfect for giving me inspiration. I like to look at textures and layouts that add a shape and feel to a space. Since we don’t have a large backyard, it’s important to make each space feel cozy and the overall layout functional and attractive.
Here’s a collection of pins I’ve gathered over time of elements I like for our backyard. Details I hope to include are water features, an outdoor dining area (maybe a nice chandelier to create a focal point), lots of plants to invite birds and butterflies and plenty of seating for family and friends.
What are some of your favorite sources for design inspiration?
