Outdoor living is the best thing about summer's warm weather, especially here in the northeast where winter dominates for too many months of the year. Even on those nights when the day has been sweltering, stepping outside to see the fireflies makes for precious memories. My husband and I love our patio and dream of one day making the space more useful, so here's to that dream with 10 decks that inspire!Scouring the pages of Sunset—one of my favorite magazines—always leaves me feeling refreshed and with the impulse that we should move out west. It makes me dream of long and easy California days! Even though I know a cross-country move isn't going to happen, at least right now, it's a great magazine for outdoor living inspiration.
If you love these decks, Sunset is showcasing sixteen more that are just as lovely! Click here for the full gallery.
