Daydreaming about outdoor living spaces:

As I said yesterday, all I've been dreaming about lately is the beach, the sand, the ocean and a cold adult beverage in my hand. I really think I could stay at the beach all summer and be happy as a little clam. I spotted these heart-achingly beautiful outdoor spaces at My Home Ideas, and I wanted to share them with you. They are perfect to file away for a mid-day daydream.
This is what I daydream about daily right now. Can you imagine having a Seaside, Florida home that features a porch off your bedroom...with a couple of lounge chairs, a delicious turkey sammy & a cold beer waiting for you? (PS, Seaside is one of the most beautiful vacation getaways on the Gulf...I highly, highly recommend it!)
This Bell Island, Connecticut, home sits oceanside; the owners placed an outdoor table and living area on their back porch that feels like a VIP restaurant or club....but it's all theirs. (Psst...What's for lunch?)
This Maui, Hawaii home features an outdoor retreat right on the beach; it's almost as if you're sitting in a living room right on top of the surf! The trick piece of architecture here is the owners' retractable glass walls. What a fabulous idea, right? And I want to decorate with starfishies asap after gazing at this photo.
