    Aaaah, yes! It is indeed an awesome diy job. However, to get the FULL awesomeness of it you must eat a beautiful breakfast on the porch with your host and hostess while feasting your eyes on the fantastic back yard below. Major wonderfulness. Thank you, thank you. Love, mom

  22. GOREGEOUS! I love all of the colors you used--I love everything. The pop of red against the blue, the bamboo, the green ceiling. Completely AWESOME!!

    I think if I lived near you we would get into a lot of trouble together decorating our homes and shopping for mid century what-nots, etc etc. :)

    Question time!

    I adore the look of the upholstered outdoor furniture but am wondering how that all works in inclement weather. In your case obviously you are sheltered quite a bit, but what do you do when the cushions get wet? I wonder what people who keep theirs outside do - do you keep the cushions put away until it's time to entertain? I can't imagine that stuff dries out quickly. Soggy cushions are not fun!

  24. If a big ol' storm is coming, we move the bamboo plant stand closest to the railing, and we fold up the director chairs and move the cushion set closest to the railing, but that's about it. The fabric on the corner piece is sunbrella, so very quick drying, and the cushions are outdoor cushions. So far we've had two frog-strangling storms and all's well, but a few weeks of experience could be VERY different than one year of experience. I'll keep you updated!
