So trying to find a graduation present for a teenage boy is not the easiest thing in the world. I was looking for something meaningful to mark the occasion but like most teens, he probably would just like the cash. In my search i looked at Room Service, one of my favorite catalog websites that has some nice personalized gifts . It's distracting when there are lots of great pictures of interiors/exteriors and five or fifteen web links later, i'm still looking at these beautiful designs and time flies and "oh yeah" i'm supposed to be looking for a graduation present!
Soooo Cody, guess what you're getting for graduation...but in my search i found some really great pictures of outdoor spaces to share and kick off the summer season. The patios or decks just steps out the door can mimic our indoor spaces with kitchens, grills and furniture as comfortable and as stylish as anything we have inside. Throw in some outdoor curtain panels, a chandelier and pots of gorgeous flowers and you've added to your homes square footage.
It's June. Fire up the grill and pour the margaritas. Memorial Day has come and gone and summer's on...enjoy some outdoor eye candy and if you have any suggestions for future graduation gifts, I've got a daughter and more nieces and nephews in the years to come!
These first three images are why i got distracted. They are of a Decorator's Showhouse in Malibu that Room Service provided accessories for...can i just move in?
So which one is your favorite? I'd love to see photos of your backyard/patio inspirations
