Do you ever look at your yard and think something is missing? And no, we’re not talking about a built-in pool or an outdoor kitchen (although, you know who to call if that’s the case). You might think you just need more flowers, trees, lights or furniture, but what you’re probably overlooking is an artistic touch.
I’ve always felt a close affiliation with cottage homes. They’re quaint, welcoming, and warm. The home design reminds me a little of Winne the Pooh meets every single romantic comedy set on the east coast. A cottage is small and the ideal of cozy dwelling. It feels old-fashioned and modest, accompanied by holiday decorations and long Sundays at home.
Ahhh, the sweet smell of competition and a little bug spray. Nothing says summer quite like the shuffled enjoyment of putting together backyard sports games with neighbors and friends. While there is a little summer left and a lot of fall, we’d love to see how you can best use your beautiful yard to get out and play! Psst…fall also means less mosquitos so let’s get out the bocce ball and get competitive! Your kids didn’t name you “Mr. King of Funtown” for nothing.
Now, let’s get dreamy. Home design doesn’t only need to be connected to the inside of the house. You were a kid once – and adulting might mean creating the space for your kids (and you!) that inspires you to get outside and play.
Here are some ideas we had that surely will bring a smile to your face.
