Southern California weather is hard to beat. Almost every single day is beautiful, and even when the weather is gloomy, it’s not all that bad.
Having such gorgeous makes you want to spend as much time outside as possible. So, space permitting, why not have an outdoor living room?! Sadly, we can’t fit much more than a tiny grill and a couple chairs and a bistro table on our apartment balcony (none of which we actually have), but that won’t stop me from lusting after these FABULOUS outdoor spaces. SWOON!
Brandon and I have talked about how to take outdoor spaces like these more livable (well, more usable, anyway) in Missouri weather (since we assume we’ll be back there eventually). We agreed on a few outdoor heaters and maybe a free-standing fireplace. Maybe we could get a few more months of use out of the space at least….? Hopefully one day we’ll find out!
