Your Favorite Thing About Your Outdoor Space: We live out there when the weather cooperates! It adds living space and a gives a sense of openness to our small mid century ranch home. We eat as many meals out there as possible, and guests always gravitate there as well. Sitting out there on a summer's night, listening to the cicadas, is so peaceful and comfortable.
Tips for Creating a Great Small Outdoor Space: If you have a space like our small screened porch, which is surrounded by open green space, try to not compete too much with the view and feeling of openness. I try to resist too many indoor plants and clutter that would just interfere with the feeling of being out in the open outdoors. When we are on our porch, it feels like a pretty seamless transition to the yard, and it really brings the outdoors in.
Thanks, Sherri, and good luck!
