Garden & Home
Context, so important, including visual and functional.Such a theme like your's worked visually, with my pueblo revival home in Abq suburbia. Until 5 years of brutal sun and the occasional windstorm dried and shrunk similar chairs, even with regular treatments. Context - now, metal chairs there, which have stood the above climatic tests for the same length of time. Your chairs work perfectly in the context you show, with the shutters, and sheltered with the house.Makes me want to try a mint julep there! But it is too early...
Can't wait to dig out my teak tables and chairs for try-outs on our covered porch. I suppose that means I'll have to get rid of the empty moving boxes and packing materials that have been hogging said porch since we moved in two months ago. Crikey, we're tacky right now, nothing like that cute setup you pictured!Christine in Alaska, lots of snow
Perfect for a glass of wine & a good conversation or book.
Were you able to go to the Flower show this year? They had a series of displays based on al fresco dining, and while most of the designs were based on place settings working with table and chairs; my favorite part was the actual tables and chairs!And then there were the woodland chairs upholstered in moss....
I'm with Lori Buff on this. Sometimes we make things too complicated. Thank you for reminding us to stay grounded.
Also a cup of coffee.
