Creating Your Outdoor Sanctuary
Author: Christie Hurd
The mood of the moment during these pandemic times has been finding peace in the garden! Let’s be absolutely clear, I do not have a green thumb nor did I ever think it was fun lol, BUTTT during these times when we’ve had little to do, I must say I did find some peace in it!
I never fully appreciated before how truly soothing it can be to just sit and pull weeds while listening to the birds chirping or redesigning my gardens. I’ve whiled away many hours sitting on a hazy spring afternoon perusing Pinterest and garden magazines trying to best decide how to redesign my outdoor spaces. My poor husband, he’s had to rearrange many vignettes out there only to have me say, I think it’s time for something different or I saw this really cute vintage outdoor sofa, etc.
I love transforming an outdoor nook into something magical, for day or night. Most of you know my style is kind of Gypsy boho with some vintage pickins mixed in. Give me some Adirondack chairs, fairy lights, country music and a glass of wine in my hand and I am a happy girl! Oh and we can’t for get the fire pit too!
Sooo, all this being said...How do you create your most relaxing outdoor summer...??
This space just welcomes you right in, it’s so inviting with the hanging swing and the bubble lights. This couch could easily be made out of pallets for a budget friendly seating space.
