(Photo to the left: Pottery Barn “Outdoor Spaces” catalog.) I love the mossy magnolia tree and hanging lanterns. Indoor furniture always looks amazing set up outside.
(Above: from Sundance catalog, if you don’t shop here already you must start!). I love this porch. Everything about it is my taste, the deck, the shingles, the paint colors, the screen door, the hydrangeas, the bistro set, the wood cutting board, the dishes, the silverware… you get the idea.
(Traditional Home May 2006 issue.) I love this path and gate, it’s so serene and peaceful. It’s simple and understated, with minimal color.
(Above and below from “Garden Rooms” Summer 2006 issue). I love hydrangeas, I have never had much luck with getting them to grow and stay healthy, but it won’t stop me from continuing to try. The brickwork, house color, and carefully chosen color really inspire me to get planting. I would love this effect in my yard, but I don’t have enough shade to pull it off.
I think I might try some pea gravel in my yard, when it’s time. I love the way it looks in all my magazines. These two pups look so cute. I would love to walk right up and play with them. The weathered wood structure and the enclosed area are ideas I want to incorporate in my yard.
