Monday Inspiration | Playhouses

Hi sweet friends!  How's your Monday going?  I had full intentions of having my post up early, but when a teenager asks you to lunch and to shop for backpacks, you do that.  I've had the best day, just taking the time to be in the present and am thankful that I can be.

My mind is still drifting toward outdoor spaces, but truth be told, I spent about ten minutes outside this afternoon and counted at least 10 mosquitoes on my legs at once.  Yuck!  Have any of you tried mosquito services?  I have local friends who have had success with the monthly service. Thoughts?

Anyway, back to pretty outdoor spaces.  Do you love darling little playhouses as much as I do?  I like ones that are simply for hanging out and I also love charming, but functional potting/tools sheds.  Today I'm sharing playhouses for lounging.  Some of them even pass a guest houses.  I've been pinning a few favorites in hopes that one day Mr. and our youngest will build a little something in our backyard.  Our youngest son is much like his grandpa in that he can make anything.  Origami master at age 4 - yes!









The first image above is mine and my family's favorite!  The fact that it has no visible doors is actually a plus. Secondly, I love the structures with double doors that when swung open maximize the outdoor experience (minus the mosquitoes of course).  The very last image is made from architectural salvage which I find very interesting.  I'm also curious about having a tiny house delivered.  Have any of you tried this?

Green, Black, and White For the Win






It would be safe to say that green, black, and white is one of my all time favorite color combinations in both interiors and outdoor spaces.  I love it for its simplicity.  Black and white create a clean back drop allowing the organic yet vibrant green to make a statement.  It can go either way - calming and peaceful or it can be quite bold at times.  All of the above images are perfectly calm and peaceful with lots of places for the eyes to rest, which always gets my vote.
