Lakeview - Chicago, Illinois
Living in the city means we have limited outdoor space, but I was more than happy to sacrifice grass for screens… as in a screen porch. We even rebuilt a second one when we added on a first floor family room.
For years, the screen porch consisted of a table and some chairs and some chili pepper lights. But this year I decided to dress it up with fun and colorful placemats, pillows, benches for seating and storage, and hanging drapes for elegance and ambiance (and privacy).
Now I love my screen porch more than ever.
