Life has dramatically improved around here since we "made over" our yard...
We look forward to starting our mornings right here with a deliciously consistent cafe latte from our Nespresso machine, another wonderful "improvement" to our morning ritual!
I seriously feel like I am on vacation when I spend time out here.
I fling open the doors of our Dining Room and let the outside in.
I've always dreamed of a backyard that would rise up to greet me and I'm still pinching myself that it's become a reality!
I finally finished the large oyster shell mirror a few weeks ago and am loving how it looks.
We also pulled together a nice arrangement under the green Chinoiserie mirror that hangs on the chimney providing a nice focal point.
I dug out this great modern Asian style console table from my prop shop and was thrilled that it fit the space so perfectly!
It should function nicely to serve cocktails & hors d'oeuvres and dessert & coffee.
The mirror reflects the tented pavilion with the white rose garden beyond.
Just a few treasures to set the scene...
A new pillow for the rattan chaise.
And best of all!
A bumper crop of 6 varieties of tomatoes!
Life is good!
