Living in the Bay Area or PNW will alter you. We, for one, walk more slowly and breathe more deeply than we did when we lived in New York. We take the time -- often -- to visit the ocean and smell the eucalyptus trees.
Our focus this month is on bringing home some of our region's outdoor magic. But we have just one week more to blog Outdoor Home, so we're putting a shout-out now for reader ideas and spaces. We want to see what you've done with your outdoor space, whether it's a garden, deck, balcony, sun room, revamped utility porch, or even a living-room that you've managed to infuse with the spirit of the great outdoors, like SammyBee's Aviary. If you send your pics for posting this week, we'll thank you with an AT t-shirt.
Here at your local AT headquarters, we will continue to blog all that is wonderful, beautiful, and inspiring on this topic, and that includes your questions and tips. If you've got something to say or a question to pose on Outdoor Home or anything else home design-related, e-mail us here.
