Backyard Inspiration

As we begin our backyard remodel, (it's really more of an "overhaul"), I've been gathering images that capture the feel of the backyard we want. 

I love this yard, because the shed is part of the scenery. We have big plans for our shed!

This picture inspires me because it looks so relaxing. Just what a backyard should be!

I love this space. It seems perfect for entertaining and I love the use of the mirror. 

Our side yard is also getting an overhaul and this picture shows how much character can be given to a small space. It's a nap spot, a reading nook and a place to have tea . . . All in one!

Do you have any big home projects going on in your house? Anyone else out there about to tackle a huge backyard project? Do tell!


  1. Those all look so relaxing!! The wooden adirondacks would be perfect lounge chairs!

    1. You're right, they would be. We actually have some that we plan to use. Can't wait!

  2. We are in the process of finding a new house and on our must-have list is a large backyard! We love to entertain and spend quality family time in the backyard, so I definitely have big plans for it! Thanks for the inspiration. :)

  3. I love that space! I wish I could have an outdoor couch but that's not very practical in the Pacific Northwest as it rains a lot!

  4. Gorgeous garden ideas, I'm sure yours will look perfect if these are your inspirations!

  5. I do the same thing whenever I decide to start a new home project. I gather a bunch of images for inspiration. I think I need to spruce up my backyard a little bit too. We have a lot of concrete so I am thinking some colored pots for plants to add some color.

  6. I love that shed. I can't wait to see how yours turns out. We need to do something to our backyard as well.
