Oh summer... it's simply the best season of the year! Perhaps because I live in the Pacific NW, these long warm days are just such a welcome change from the gray wet days that dominate the rest of the year. To make the most of this short season in the new house, the first "room" on my list to finish was the courtyard.
Thanks to all those clearance sales on outdoor furniture at Target, a garage sale find and a floor model purchased at Pottery Barn, this room was dressed in no time and we've already enjoyed entertaining multiple times over these first two weeks in the house.
Here's to making the most of this season!
