Lovely Outdoor Room Ideas

At Anita's Mountain Home

You'll be blessed by Anita's outdoor room ideas. As the author of Far Above Rubies, Anita truly loves making a house a home as you will quickly learn.



She is so fortunate to live on the same property that her great grandfather from Florida bought for his summer place.

Five generations of her family have lived here so she feels a true connection to her family here.

Anita's charming, rustic home is in the mountains in a most lovely wooded area that anyone would love to call "home sweet home".

Her home is not large so her outdoor rooms add such breathing room for her family, especially in the summer. Anita says all the rock you see is from their property. Even the plantings are from their woods.

Summer on the porch

Her porch overlooks their creek that she played in as a child. Anita says she is very grateful for this property that her parents generously gave to her. She wouldn't trade it for anything! Now that is a loving heart.

Anita's summer porches

Anita and her husband, Luis, do most everything themselves around their home by combining their loves. He loves architecture and woodworking whereas Anita loves restoring furniture, decorating, sewing and entertaining. She shares her loves on her blog, Far Above Rubies.

Outdoor living space ideas

Simply put, together they enjoy making an amazing home for their family. And the results speak for themselves.

We like how Anita uses sheer outdoor curtains to define spaces on her porch. And oh, the whimsy and charm they add. Beautiful to see the light passing through them.
