Dreaming of Spring: 16 Gorgeous Gazebos

Prepare to acquire #GazeboGoals.

I have a love-hate relationship with winter. When it’s in conjunction with a blazing fireplace, a hot chocolate or an ultra-cozy blanket, I’m totally on board. But when I’m caught outside in the freezing rain or my pipe unexpectedly bursts, I’m over it in about ten seconds flat. By the time February hits, my winter angst is building, and I’m already dreaming of spring. This year is no exception.

Right now, my lifeless backyard has me dreaming up all kinds of ideas, but one in particular is extra-appealing: the gazebo. Imagine it’s a sunny spring afternoon, and the air is crisp and fresh. Flowers are blooming, and the grass has finally reclaimed that deep, verdant green hue. You head outside, but there’s nowhere to sit. Gasp! Enter, the dreamy gazebo.

I’ve rounded up 20 of my favorite gazebos to inspire your daydreams — or maybe your backyard reno, if you’re lucky.
