Design Inspiration: Rustic Outdoor Living Spaces

Temperatures are in the 70’s this weekend in Steamboat Springs, something that usually doesn’t happen until late May.  The warm temperatures are  getting me  in the mood to start preparing our outdoor living spaces so we can enjoy this gorgeous weather.  Here are five captivating spaces sure to inspire ideas for your own outdoor living haven in Colorado…or wherever your outdoor living space is!

Here’s a space from the Home on the Range portfolio. Cozy seating around the outdoor fireplace is perfect for a relaxing evening outdoors.

The stone fireplace and columns, the stone tile floor and the  wood beams give this Portland space a decidedly rustic feel.

Best outdoor patio
Reply April 7, 2012

The covered patio with the fireplace is great. I think that the best outdoor patio should have a covered area to provide shelter from the sun and rain. Screened in porches are great too. Fireplaces and fire pits provide a heat source for those cool days and nights.

    That is a good point about having a covered area to get out of the sun and rain. In the mountains the fireplaces and fire pits are a must!
