Inspiration: Outdoor Oases

Sunset Magazine

It's happening: the idea of spending more than a few non-essential minutes outside is becoming more and more palatable as the weather warms and the sky brightens. And this gallery of outdoor nap spots in Sunset is equally encouraging.

Our criteria for a relaxing outdoor refuge would have to include somewhere soft to sit and lay, a mix of sunny and shady, and colors that look good with green and brown. This gallery represents those characteristics nicely, using jewel tones and Asian details to make it happen.
