Inspiring Outdoor Fall Settings

Love these outdoor spaces in Southern Living. The weather is perfect right now in the evening to cook out, light your outdoor fireplace however small or large it may be and enjoy the crisp Fall outdoors!
"Use antique brick for outdoor patios and fireplaces. The brick in the courtyard came from old buildings that were torn down. The biggest problem with antique brick is there are several different sizes and it tends to get mixed up. Set the brick in sand, rather than concrete, to give a relaxed and aged look. Plus, the sand helps level odd-size bricks."

"An outdoor fireplace makes it comfortable to sit outside on cool Fall evenings. Add touches of the season around the mantle and the hearth. Add seasonal décor to the hearth and mantle of your fireplace with arrangements of pumpkins, gourds, and fall leaves."

Here you can view all of the outdoor settings and get inspired!
