    I’m getting a bit obsessed with Apartment Therapy‘s ‘My Great Outdoors‘ section! It basically involves gardeners proudly (and so they should be) sending in shots of their outdoor spaces and chatting a bit about their project.

    Here are two of my favourites …

    I love how this New York City homeowner has made the most of their roof terrace, in fact they’ve made SO much of their outdoor space – with an alfresco dining area, outdoor kitchen and lounging zone.

    … and onto a less urban garden design, this pretty Portland patio is perfect all year round with an alfresco dining table and a shaded lounge area that’s perfect for cocktails in the evening.

      This is very NY. I’m not keen on the green furniture, but would love to get my hands on some of the black wicker furniture, it’s so chic.

      I’m not keen on outdoor spaces. They are indeed quite hard to design although many might beg to differ. I find landscaping and outdoor design overwhelming. It could just be me. Who knows? But these are fantastic! I dream of my own place looking just as gorgeous.
