Last year, I specified Cane-line for a client. This is a protected breakfast area with old Egyptian gates to keep out the deer, and a water feature. This is one of my favourite areas of the property, because there is an active eagles nest close enough to see and hear the activity.  I like the way the black plays off the iron gates.

I don’t have the source of this image, but love when indoors and outdoors merge like this…and the level changes are so interesting.

Now…on to a few of my collected all time, favourite outside spaces…

Yesterday we finally were able to placed our deck furniture - the weather is getting better so we can go outside and work in our studio back patio. I just need some plants and we are ready to go and have some creative meetings outside - clients love to seat under the sun when we are doing presentations so I can wait to use my patio again. I think the patio is my favourite excuse to willy nelly in the summer time.

Love your patio selections!

Michelle, these are so pretty. I am stuck inside today with a cold and I had looked forward all week to opening my pool and cleaning out the pool house. I sure wish I had a set of that furniture for it. Thanks for coming by. I always enjoy hearing from you!

You totally confused me Michlle.
Could not decide which ones I like more
The Ralph Lauren collection is beautiful, Dedon is great, your favorites are artistic.
I like them all, I can I guess :)

I've been wanting outdoor furniture for several years but Brian always has a "rational" reason why we can't get any. This year? We're painting the exterior of the house... "where will we store it?" Hmm... right. I told him that I'd hold off until after the house was painted, but that's it!! Of course, by the time the house is painted the season will be close to over and I'll have to wait another year!! Men! ;-)

Hi Michelle
What an amazing round up of exterior patio settings you have shown. I just wished we lived in a climate that had more months of warm weather. I love the white Starck chairs.
