Cool Patios

We’ve been experiencing a bit of a heat wave here in the Bay Area, which means that Walnut Creek, where I hail from, is especially H-O-T.  I actually love the heat, though, and I especially love sitting outside on a warm summer evening.  Which is why I’m turning my inspiration to outdoor spaces this week.  I came across these great patios in the current Dwell magazine issue and just had to share…

Wood Stump Patio

I love the use of end-cut wood stumps with gravel fill as an alternative to stone or concrete.

The grid pattern created by the mix of grass and concrete is inviting and fun!

I hope you all enjoy a nice cool beverage in your outdoor space of choice…enjoy
