Outdoor Spaces in Exotic Places

I'm entchanted by the names alone. Yiti, Lamu or Bora Bora! Do these outdoor spaces in exotic places look different than what we're used to see here? Take a look.

Awww. I would love to be in any of those places right about now, relaxing in that beautiful sunshine. It has been pretty cold and very windy here. My husband just got done building a pergola, and put curtains and retractable shades on it for a little bit of protection from the hot sun that we get here in the desert in the summertime. It's going to be so much nicer out on our deck this year, as we used to bake out there before and couldn't stay out for long. Can't wait to test it out this summer!!

We have a covered patio off of our family room. It is so nice to sit out there during the summer with the ceiling fan turned on to cool you off. Off of the patio is our pool which used to be nice, but is empty and awaiting major repairs now. I don't think we'll do them this year with the economy they way it is. :(

All of those exotic places look amazing!

Oh my gosh I love these photos. I love the name Bora Bora too. If I ever win the lottery, that's where you can find me. Fabulous post.

This time I'll have Bora Bora, please. Sydney in a pinch. :-)
