An outdoor oasis can really take a home from ordinary, to extraordinary! Having a beautiful backyard really comes in handy- especially when it comes to entertaining during the summer! Let’s take a look at some of my top 'must haves' to create a dreamy outdoor living space for your home!

Outdoor KitchenHaving an outdoor kitchen is truly a luxury! Not only does it take the appearance of your backyard to the next level, it also really comes in handy when you’re entertaining! So if you’re not into hosting parties, you might want to stay clear of this one because your home would be the ‘it’ place to be for any summer BBQ!


Pool: A pool is my absolute favorite thing a backyard could have! Adding a pool can really help bring that “resort feel” to your home! Unfortunately, building a pool is not necessarily an inexpensive project. The good news is that there are many other ways to go about adding a water feature to your backyard! Installing a fountain or a small pond could potentially be a more affordable alternative! 

Fireplace: Having a fireplace makes for a great excuse to spend more time with your friends and family! The great thing about adding a fireplace to your backyard is that you can make it as inexpensive or expensive as you wish! 


Patio: I see so many backyard patios that lack color, excitement and functionality. Adding bright cushions, lush plants and an outdoor T.V, just might be exactly what you need to make your backyard the ultimate hangout spot!


A backyard is one of my favorite parts of a home. There’s nothing like being able to step into your backyard and letting the stress of a hectic week melt away. Sprucing up your outdoor space can truly give your home a whole new meaning! Sometimes adding a new element to your backyard is all it takes to make you fall in love with your home again!
