dianna agron's backyard makeover

the weather has been miserable this week. lots of rain, wind, cold temperatures, and snow is in the forecast for today. i'm not lying when i say that these photos of dianna agron's backyard makeover totally brightened up my week. a little spring or summer sounds pretty nice right now—actually, who am i kidding—how about some sun?

her backyard is very whimsical, including objects from her travels and pieces and furniture inspired by the places she has been to. although the focus of the article was on her backyard, i had to share the glimpse we got of her kitchen. gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.

i love how her backyard looks just as inviting and cozy at night as it does during the daytime. the lights in the pool are a nice touch!
