Inspiration....

I just got my new issue of Country Living magazine in the mail yesterday, and I love this mag. It's one of the many ways I get inspiration. I can just sit and study the pages and then feel inspired to clean or move the furniture. With spring on the horizon, this issue is inspiring me to get my outdoor space ready. I only wish mine were as beautiful as the pics. I so totally wish that I had an old shed on our farm that I could do this but I do not, so I will just work with what I have. I love this chair! The white arms and legs paired with the brown upholstery are a perfect match in my book!
What a clever idea for an outdoor sink, a simple bucket hung on a spickot with a bar of soap!
I love the brightness of this space, the white furniture, floral pillows and flea market feel of the whole room.

these are So fabulous! So dreamy - the outdoor living room with the WHITE sofa. Seriously. What guts!

Love that you shared these pics. It is a beautiful spring-feeling day here, and I'm totally motivated to see outside as a new living room, because of these pics!

Well maybe I need to run out and buy that magazine! The bucket under the faucet with soap resting above it just the cutest thing!

I'm either having deja vu or several people posted the same pictures today. You should post pictures of your little outdoor wonderland this spring, Tricia. It is just as romantic and lovely as these you posted.

Oh - I just got my issue too! I always "save" my magazines until I have the time to sit down and really look at every single thing. I agree, they are full of inspiration.

I just love that magazine too and those pictures. Love the light fixtures they use in the outdoor room!
