Inspirational Covered Porches with Fireplaces.

Well it has FINALLY started to warm up over here in Idaho.   There are buds starting on all the trees and I am not sure I should admit but I laid down on the front pavers and just absorbed all the sun's warmth on our first "hot" day.  I am pretty sure I should retire somewhere really warm as it makes me so happy. (Or I suppose I could just go on a trip to the tropics, that would make me happy too) ;-)

Being that I am gearing up for summer, I thought it would be fun to show you some awesome outdoor patio rooms.

Get ready to be inspired!

First, I LOVE this porch with the build in fireplace.  I wrote a whole article about decorating with lanterns and what the best classic accessories are to use in your home.

This is such a rustic outdoor entertainment area.  Once again, a cozy fireplace makes this the perfect place for an evening drink. (oh, and I'm sure the mountain top view helps out with the relaxation effect too) :-)

Mirrors always make a space appear bigger.  This is a lovely set up with dreamy pulled curtains as a bonus feature.

I picked this little photo because it's more "real".  Us "normal" folks could actually figure out how to do something like this with our home.  Decorating with greenery is one of my favorite design tips.  You can read one of my popular posts on how to make any space go from DRAB to FAB :-)

The hood on this fireplace makes the space for me :-)  I love anything aged and old world style.

 Walls covered in brick or stone is another one of my favorite features :-) You can click over on that post to see how to create stone veneer walls in your own home for not a lot of money!

I have actually shown you guys this photo below in my post on AMAZING outdoor ideas. I guess I just have a special place in my heart for this photo LOL.  I can't wait for my own pergola to be covered in vigorous blooming vines :-)

I love all the french doors opening up to this covered outdoor area.

I really liked how the stone walls followed through with the same color scheme to the slate floor! I love the patio furniture too - what a great pop of color.

This is simply lovely :-)

I'm not quite sure what I like more.....the room or the scenery!  What a PEACEFUL outdoor room!

This is such a lovely addition to this home.  If you ever have the chance to build your own home having a covered porch area to entertain outside would be invaluable.

And lastly, what a GRAND back patio.  Wow :-)  I love the old wooden beams and the stone fireplace.  Simply awesome :-)

What do YOU think about outdoor patios and porches?  Did you have a favorite? 

Do you have one and use it a lot or does it seems to just "be there" but never put to good use?
